What More - Poem by Leria Hawkins

When will I know your heart, my love
Will there be time for it
I have waited, and you have waited
My soul…has waited
But the sun goes down
And the world spins round, and I am empty

You are not mine, you are never…ever mine
And I burn…burn raw in my desires

How long… how long must I wait
How long in this cruel surrender…
How long…trapped by the echo of memories
How long…my passion rewinding in the ache of a lifetime…
Each day, I wake to a hard and bitter truth
A day, a week, a year…a lifetime
Without you
My life, my love…always and forever without you…

You never gave me truth, my sweet
Never a word, a warm sentiment
And today, I take no more than this
No more than a cold and lonesome heart
No more…than a grave robbed of its spirit
A hole…black and bitter as coal ash

There’s no room to turn around, my sweet…
Our echoes have grown, oh so distant…so cold
There’s no fire to our flame, sweetheart
What more can I say…what more?
There’s just no fire to our flame…
There’s only burning
Just a fierce and ruthless burning

But, I’ll leave it here today, love
Leave it, just as I came
I’ll leave with the same merciless yearning
I’ll leave behind a decade of trust
Belief that burned with a bright and fanciful hope
A hope that only love can bear
A hope…slain and sacrificed at the hands of indifference

What more is there to say, my sweet
What more…
