it just dawned on me
you don’t want people to know you’re lonely
because when we talk you pretend not to need it
always drawn to me again, you hover
but hovering is bizarre & inconsequential
i would stay by this goblin window
but i can’t keep holding on to a promise
that is missing
where is your safe harbor?
where is your waiting area?
to all the lovers of captains lost at sea
where is your lost & found?
to all the hearts you draw near
let me wait there.
show me the place you created in your world
for me; let me be the one to decide
if my love can subside to your comisery
— “Lost at Sea” by Vanessa Condez
