Written words last forever

Waiting until the ink fades

So I sit in torment

Watching as the tears evaporate

What could I have done?

If nothing more than a hug

Something to show how I felt

Now I dwell on memories

And recreations of fantasy

Living them over again in my head

Hearing the words that were never said

Why did I wait?

Waiting and seeing is useless to me now

But it's all that I've got

Next to the memory of you

So I take these few words and express

Emotions that crowd the surface

Emerging in ink on pages

Filled with my desolation

And entrapment to you
