“what are you waiting for?” – 2

for the lump in my throat
to recede enough for me
to catch my breath

to release the words
that i have been holding tight
behind downcast eyes and half-guarded smiles

to release the dreams that
have come to haunt me
from near and far in my memory

for my ears to stop
hearing whispers that
brush against wishful lobes

for my pisces moon to be
a little less full
(it is wreaking havoc on me)
