Love Blossoms

I will be quiet now

and allow you

a turn to speak.

Your eyes have told me

the truth your lips

stumble on.

I’m leaving if you

don’t give a voice

to your heart.

The burden is heavy,

and I’m packing my things

but the door stays open.

I will be on my way out

if you wish

for this to be goodbye.

I was holding on

too tightly to something

not yet mine.

I’m sorry and now

I’ll wait for you

to call me back.
