Waiting

I sit in silence, waiting.
Waiting to hear something, anything.
In hopes of an answer that goes unanswered.

I hear the gentle running of the modem.
Rumbling as I hope to hear something else.
Nothing.

I look around the room in the dim lighting.
Memories flooded my mind like a downpour of rain.
A smile, a laugh, a touch.

I close my eyes in hopes to disengage the thoughts.
I’m back in the room again.
I sit in silence, waiting.
