I know you’d never ask me to wait for you,
but I would wait for you. I would wait
until the sky fucking fell into my palms,
shattering. Would wait until the oceans
came and knocked on my front door.

I would wait until the ghost of
Frank Sinatra waltzed into your home
to sing a duet with you while you
washed the dishes. Goddammit, I would

                        wait until forever.
