Declarative Statement (or a lot of -still- ness)

Audio Version: Declarative Statement (or a lot of -still- ness)

{yikes} Okay, 
that was read on a heavy day
with a heavy heart
okay, I admit.
I don’t [want to?] get it
 
Must mystery be 
if we must part
please I ask you
do not replace 
mystery for mystery
one that’s old,
 for one that’s new
 
what you wish
it will be 
{if I am reading you}
but spell it o u t.
don’t leave me here
in to pout about
 
I wait still
for you
right here    
  
because today the rain
paints my vision
and today is not the day
for any kind of decision
 
I wait still 
for you     
right here  
 
May I not have offended
and caused 
some 
[mumbles]
 
it will be carried weightily  
some still
until
 
 
it will be
my awkward cheers 
wailing out hopes 
and fears [for years?]
 
I wait still
for you     
right here.
