I Waited Here

I waited here 
Those long hours, 
for you
Hopeful, you would notice me today
Then you came
And you gave a glance
Two-second attention – like a goldfish
I counted
Through the hurry in your eyes
I counted, till you turned your back 
And your hips sang away 
“Darkness on the Edge of Town”

I am still here
No longer waiting for you, 
I am still here
Just wondering 
Wondering if I really exist
Wondering if the two seconds 
were for me
Or for the risky darkness behind me
