Table for One

A poem about moving on

Last week I made a wish on you

Tried my best to make it come true

Saw 11:11 for 3 days straight

I thought surely it’s a sign

And I shouldn’t hesitate

To make a wish

So I clenched my eyes and prayed

Hoping that God heard it

Choosing to have faith and move unafraid

What then would you have me do, Universe?

Sit while me, myself, and I converse

I can’t say that I’ve been

The biggest fan of patience

But I have no choice

In this game waiting

But the day went by

And the night soon followed

And all that was left

Was an empty wish

And a heart that felt hollow

To my “surprise”

The wish did not spark

And I ran out of wishes

Or cares to give

To satisfy my heart

It’s time that I bow out

Of this table for one

I’m afraid no one is coming

So I’ll see myself out

I’ve blown out my last candle

And I won’t light another one

It’s time to move on

At this table for one.
