The Awaited

Even the night celebrates, carries a bright full moon by the hand
And I wonder, when, and if, you watch this view, where it is you stand
And how much of the moonlight shining our world is just your own reflected
And how much heavier your heart weighs since the last year
And how much more disconnected

I send my love and greetings everyday
Dispatch them sans address, hoping they find their way
I wish I could be more selective in what exactly it is you receive
I just really want you to think that I'm all set and ready
But in vain does my ugliness try to stay up my sleeve

To see you, I'll only pray for under one condition
That I have the privilege of your admission
Do you hear the desperation in my hearts' beats?
The promise of you that makes all worthy
The seemingly endless cycle of defeat?

Listen- to the sound of hope in every breath of air
This is my only gift to you- for your patience that never wears
An inexhaustible fuel to run it. Tiny amends for my behaviour
Anything to keep me alive for
My awaited saviour.

  1. That's a beautiful poem and I'm guessing it was inspired by the supermoon. Either way, awesome!

  7. Beautiful.
    Sometimes I feel, there are meanings deeper imbibed in poems than in just words.
    This was one the heart touching ones.
