She is waiting

Holding her breath

Wishing he'd arrive.

She lifts her teacup

Looking into its walls

Fighting sadness again.

Holding back tears

Her eyes downcast

All hopes of happiness vanished.

Lost in memories

She is quiet.

Where is he?

Leaving now, 

Her love long gone

Door swinging behind her.

Anxiously checking the streets

Is he just running late?

No, it's all so familiar.

She is falling

Apart in sorrow

He always forgets.

She is mourning

The promises made

Fading like the sun.

Looking to the right

She sees a path to follow

Then turns and walks left.

She is free.
