If Only

I keep
words trapped
in shapeless songs
as the rain falls
over forgotten promises
I bargain
not knowing
knowing your heart
for distance
and lie listless
taken by the dream
I am betrayed
by the tears
that abandon me
seeping away
at mere memory
and moon rises
and moon falls
crescent and ball
through this unending nightfall

if only
a day would break
this spell
and shatter what remains
release those years
I spent
in wait
and give me my hope back…
