only so long

it’s only so long before

the glossy moments repeatedly bidden become fadedly hidden

the flourish of wistful paeans sound simply stock and plaintive

the cajoling requests whine like wheedling beggings

before longings become too long to long for

before absence creates its own opaque void

and loss seeps into the bones

no longer held taut with waiting
