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.
