In a cold
Quiet and alone.
The most gorgeous thing you can do when you want something with all your heart is to have the patience (and courage) to just sit quietly and wait for it.
The catch is that you must wait in such a profound, elegant, and selfless way that deep down you truly forget what you’re waiting for altogether.
No books, no music, no movies.
Just you and your waiting.
how strange the room is
how cold your skin is
how ruthless the quiet is
And recognizing how lonely
being ‘Alone’ actually is
There’s an ever-so-slight but quintessential difference between ‘waiting’ and ‘hoping’
To hold a candle in the dark, expressionlessly.
Otherwise, you’re just wasting time.
