P A T I E N C E



Patience


Patiently descending into a silence

And Silence hurts.


Patiently pushing tears away

And tears are heavy.


Patiently listening to emptiness

And emptiness hurts.


Patiently waiting for nothing

And nothingness is heavy.


Patiently smiling alone

And smiling hurts.



Patiently contemplating

And contemplation is heavy.


Patiently measuring feelings

And feelings hurt.


Patiently counting not taken steps

And stillness is heavy.


Patiently waiting for nothing

And oblivion hurts.


Patiently letting a dream die

And letting go is heavy.


Patiently learning of patience

And patience hurts.


Patiently wiping tears

And tears are heavy.


Patiently realizing

And reality hurts.


Patiently killing questions

And questions are heavy.


Another time.

Another day.


Look !


Patience…

Walked away.
