Nest

You built your nest
twig by tiny twig
and you kept at it
with purpose
and a lot of it was emotional for you
putting it together
was like putting yourself together
building it
left you feeling like something was building
inside you

expectation

and you had help
from someone you loved
and trusted
who could see the nest finished too
(or so you thought)
and they seemed as excited as you did

expectation

and you lined it with bits of fluffy cotton
and you got it just how you liked it
you imagined baby birds
you saw yourself snuggled next to your love
in that same nest
for all of your days

expectation

and then one day
he flew away
or maybe he wrecked the nest
or maybe he pushed you out....
however the way....
you are dislocated
dislodged from
a place you once called home
a place you got too used to
a place you became comfortable with
for a time
lined with

expectation

and now it seems loves a crime
that happened to you
and hope eludes you
and shadows taunt you
what ifs and if onlys
make you toss and turn in the night
and you wait with

expectation

for things to turn out
alright.
