Acedia

It’s neither here nor there that I find rest,
– Although my blood is moving slower –
The world is too much hassle now,
The wind is North and getting stronger,
The last of you has gone
And I can’t cope. I close my eyes
To close some doors, to wait
And all I do is wait for nothing; to wait
For footsteps to be yours.
