Hurt Floats

I’m clouded
In a mist of ambivalence
With my emotions in a fiery battlefield
The temple of love
Against the dungeon of odium
Yet I run towards you
Slipping and stuttering
Yet relentless in my pursuit of you

Then you arrested your gait
And turned towards me
Sensing my impatience at your verdict
As I wonder whether your procrastination
Has run her course

Will I hear those evasive words
That will summon my world
To the throne of your lips

For I have waited
As seasons passed
As nature unveiled her secrets
As she shed her cloak and scarf
And slept profoundly
On the lap of mother earth

As I stare at your face
Frozen in a fragile pause
Like the calm before a storm
As your lips finally parted
To relinquish to your final verdict

A soft soothing kiss transpired
On my deflating cheek

As I succumbed
To the wrath of a dagger
Scathing my skin
