Your lips part silently
around words I cannot hear.
Muted, but calling to me
just the same
and persistent.
Your face the promise
I’ve been waiting for,
a message behind the walls,
how the beautiful take long baths
in the
crumbling.
Please tell me what
I came here for.
What the syllables
are.
What is this developing distance
between moving and
standing
still.
The words have stopped
falling from your mouth.
“Patience.”
Time is held by the hands,
held in your hands, sliding
through vanishing palms.
And I am waiting.
I will wait with all the world
for the tremble of
a single word
from you.
