To wait

You left me there to wait

In the rain

In the cold

At night

You left me there to wait

I told you what would happen if you didn’t show

I would hate you

You didn’t come

Why is it so hard to listen when told?

My anger and frustration turned to venomous animosity

An acrid taste permeates through my mouth

I suffered, alone

Soon caustic words melted away, and washed up expressionless phrases and gestures

As my hand reaches, you brushed me aside, without a second glance

As you left me there to wait

In the rain

In the cold

At night

You left me there to wait
