speaker of truths

you said I was to sit there and hold
so I’d be safe and guarded,
close to your heart.

so I waited
in the enclosed space
that was to me assigned,
as I marinated in my thoughts,
as I withered
and weathered in the dark.

I didn’t know better.

“hang in there, for I am coming for you”,
you said.
“it won’t be long. any moment now”.

thus, I held my head up
and fed on the hope
that it was just a matter of waiting
for my number to come up.

in the end,
all I did was wait, alone,
and collect dust in your pocket.

(lesson learned, my friend.
lesson learned.)
