park night
silentspring

waiting in the park
 1
like it's been for ages
 2
just sitting here,
 3
in the cold, on a swing
 4
where I first cried to you.
 5
just sitting. alone. except I'm not cause
 6
im with the night.
 7
and the people walk by on a sidewalk
 8
on the other side of the fence
 9
where I know the grass to be greener
 10
but you wouldn't recognize me there
 11
not with my proud chin and haughty walk.
 12
 
 
I think it's the realization
 13
that it has been ages
 14
(3 of them to be exact)
 15
is what finally makes me stand up
 16
and walk into the concrete road
 17
past the fence. past the boundary of beyond.
 18
where I was too scared to be before you told me you were afraid.
 19
 
 
I'm angry now. more than I'll ever show
 20
it's ten o'clock and dark out
 21
you don't get to be the scared one.
 22
its been too many accidents
 23
with me cleaning up the mess
 24
and yet I still am the only one waiting.
 25
 
 
its damn cold
