Waiting in the Dark

Waiting in the Dark

A Poem by Essa G

I wait in the dark
For my phone screen to light up
Fo you to reply to me
For you to say something

I wait for a message
From you that is filled
With your words
And your words only

I wait for you to say something
I don't already know
Something you haven't said quite yet
Words I long to hear

I wait in the dark
For you to tell me something
Something I desperately hope for
Something I want so much

I want you to say the words
I cannot say to you
What I need you to say first
To give me the courage

I've waited for eternity
So I can say these words to you
I've hidden this from the world
But not from this diary

I love you
I want you to say you love me too
In a message sent to my phone
So I guess I'll just keep waiting.

haha, yea, i get that :)
I'm not sure the first time someone professed their love for me I'd want it to be in a text message...ha, that's just me, I must be getting old, nicely pen'd Essa. ;-)

did you mean 'sent' to my phone?
