It’s the waiting game that’s the worst.
Not the knowing,
not the good or the bad,
but the waiting,
to find out what they’re going to say.
And while you wait,
you keep living your life like normal
because you, darling,
are perfectly whole on your own.
But, your brain won’t stop churning,
and your phone stays glued to your hip
while you wait for their call.
Do they want you?
You just want a yes or no.
That way, you can stop wondering what they’re thinking,
That way, you can stop thinking about their lips on yours.
That way, you can stop wondering if they even care at all.
Because once you have an answer,
you know whether to move on
or to hold on for dear life.
