Validation

The moment hung thick in the air,
Like morose memories.

“How could I have been so stupid?”

Waiting turned,
And a rotten carcass was all that was left.

“And why didn’t you come?”

In the end, the chair was left empty in the middle of the room;
Would I have sat,
Dear,
I fear we both would have disappeared.

So I waited some more,
Wondering if you would show up,
Screaming inside my mind,
But I couldn’t remember your name.

All it wanted was your validation.

“Please?” It begged. “I need more!”
