I Wait - Poem by Melanie Emikohe

Like an obedient child,
I wait. I wait.
Tomorrow, will you?
At a friend's party.

I despise dreaming
because they're lies;
sweet hearts' tales
gone by breakfast.

Perhaps i should be
satisfied with gazes;
for your lips are frozen,
stitched and dead.

    nice the last stanza-
    Perhaps i should be
    satisfied with gazes;
    for your lips are frozen,
    stitched and dead.
    ......

    no soreness; no boring vest
    one drop of smiling or concerning tears
    on the dried way of coming
    in this night morning..........
    till then waiting; till then waiting
    cause love is crawling! ! ! ! ! !
