poetry by j matthew waters

looking past forward looking thoughts

I tried to look her in the eye
but she turned away and
walked out of my life

so I sat there alone
surrounded by strangers
wondering when in the world
I’d be able confide in someone

confidence has been lacking
exuberance long exhausted
I paced the waiting room
soon found myself reading
thoughts of those around me

I sensed I had been here before
but had gotten nowhere
but this time
reading those many thoughts of
hope and resurrection
I started to convince myself
that somehow
this place must be different
