Waiting by Jonah Barun

I sit by the window,
Watching the street lights
Flicker in the winter chill.
3 AM and I think, I start
To think of you instantly.
Vivid colors appear in my head
But almost suddenly dark shadows
Override my rainbows. I almost
Shed a tear, but those happy moments
Stop wetness from shedding down
My face. Sunlight bursts through the darkened cloud,
And I see the you I miss again.
No, I won’t cry.
I’ll just wait for you to come again
Like an elementary student waiting on summer break.
