dried up waiting to be watered.

she stands there
looking to him
wishing he’d move closer
wishing he’d take a step

she stands there
knee deep in wet concrete
time passes and the concrete hardens
she’s paralyzed
wishing she had moved when she had the chance

now he looks to her
as if she’s the most beautiful statue he’s ever seen
but he doesn’t realize
she was never meant to be a statue

he walks away like a tourist to a new attraction
without a second notion
she stands there
a seed desparate to sprout


dried up waiting to be watered
