Waiting for Love
People tell me I shouldnt look
That I should wait
That love will come to me

Let me tell you -
For I have waited
My patience is a daily vitamin
And a drug I deliver outwards

I wait all day
For the sunshine to set
Because I know the next day
I will wait no longer

I wake up each day
Thinking a lot
It hurts so much
That I handcuff my thoughts
To pully systems of rust and thorns

That I shoot myself daily
With pains of starving children
And abused and tortured
Souls from heaven

I wait
I do not seek
I wait for its arrival
I calmly sit
By lakes and skyscrapers
Upon breezes and fireflies
And upon decks and concourses

I wait.

I wait for a prophet
Or an angel
I wait for a sign
but never look.

All I can do
Is wait.
