Waiting

I look just fine on the outside
Sitting here, waiting patiently
Picking up my phone, checking it over and over again
Just to find nothing
Staring at this heartbreaking empty screen
Watching as the minutes change and hours increase
Waiting, waiting, waiting
And as I know there is still nothing there,
I continuously check, over and over again
Click, click, click
And I'm in my inbox, rereading your messages, over and over again
Still waiting patiently, my phones back on the table
And as I stare at it, I wait for a tone
A tone that Ive grown so used to
A tone that means you, and only you
A tone I've heard over and over again
Waiting, waiting, waiting
Saying nothing but feeling everything
Screaming on the inside, crying on the inside
Replaying out last conversation, over and over again
And as I sit here still, my hand touches a nothingness screen
waiting, waiting, waiting
Still nothing
My patience is gone, I'm pacing
Back and forth, over and over again
My phone is now glued to my hand
And that is where it will stay
For I know I'll be waiting, waiting, waiting
on this nothingness screen.
