29 days, 5 hours and 11 minutes
Sitting here, counting the seconds,
watching as the clock ticks

45 days, 16 hours and 4 minutes
My heartbeat thumping slowly,
counting another second as my exhale masks a tick.

206 days, 20 hours and 43 minutes
Slowly the clock closes its eyes, dead,
and drifts to a peaceful sleep

1083 days, 7 hours and 29 minutes
But still i lie,
staring at the wall.

2014 days, 35 hours and 8 minutes
Waiting for more time to pass.
For him to either forgive me, and come back.
Or for me to fade into oblivion – to become nothing but empty space.

Waiting still as my corpse dissolves to bones,
my being nothing but ashes.
2921 days, 9 hours and 1 minute…
and counting…

    Oh, just btw, this cuts me deeply – thinking I might die waiting, I mean. So I would very much appreciate it if you don’t post a hurtful or criticizing comment.

    I think this is powerful Pixie, and I can feel the pain there, and I am so very sorry for you…I don’t know what else to say…the things you write are so beautiful, and so real.
