Alas She said, "Wait and watch"
Quite coolly "For what", he asked
For the day when it wouldn't matter anymore
The name popping up on the message screen
When she wouldn't recheck her phone for his reply
When like the dried tears on her cheeks
He would be forgotten without a trace
Forgotten really? No.
He will be remembered,
In those occasional taunts
In the tacit replies of another
In the prolonged wait at the coffee shop
And in the velvety soft touch of a hand
He will linger, want it or not
Within the lines of her poetry.
