I Wait - Poem by Heather Rhoden

Listen to the wind.
Hear my strangled cry.
I wait for the sorrow to end.
I wait for my soul to fly.

Feel my heartbreak.
Sense the signs.
I wait for the pain.
I wait for the lies.

See my dreams.
Look at my fears.
I wait to hear my screams.
I wait to taste my tears.

Sample my blood.
Remember the taste.
I wait for the forgotten.
I wait for the blade.
