This is extremely rough. I'm not sure when I wrote it, I just found it hanging out in one of my notebooks one afternoon when looking for addresses.

Wait

There was you
At the back of my mind
The heart of my memories
You waited.

A fistful of wishes and dreams
Brought me nothing
I waited.

In dreams you came to me
You held my hand
And took me away, but
Never stayed.

Years worth of heartache
A lifetime of pain
I've waited.

Emptiness surrounds the
Already dark
There's silence behind the fairytales
Of my broken heart.

Far from ever again
I keep the thoughts of you
Yet you wait.

Breaking through my dreams
Climbing through open thoughts

Find me again in sleep
I'll be there looking for you
And waiting.
