Waiting's Close Lover When

"Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.- Rainer Maria Rilke

"Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering." - Paulo Coelho

Dressing myself with Waiting's robes looking in the mirror at When
Finding thoughts that without warning haunt and scare my lonely Then
Question the mistress Waiting, again to the end of never, When?
Waiting she dances, holding me close and calling her lover Then
Her music of chance and sultry moves under the covers of patient When
A cruel lover Waiting plays with me as I grow old with desire Then
Teasing from me my passing youth called Waiting's close lover When
