there’s a whole lot I can do tonight
so much I can do without you
I could pace myself to sleep, could write all night in misery
I could throw a party for myself for finally walking out

but I’m not waiting

even magnets repel each other
I am flames, you are water
I am smoke you are the wind,
ice, you are the sun
and you’re breaking me down, breaking me down one particle by one

but I’m not waiting

I listen to the footsteps outside my door
and through all this, I still wish they were
yours, I still wish they were yours

And now I am waiting
