Samuel M.

The Wait

Thick with anticipation
Uncontrollable electrical excitement directs the mind
To the inevitable moment of arrival
The knowledge of what’s coming prolongs the wait
It becomes more and more enticing as it comes nearer to reality
The distance shortens yet it comes no closer
Each minute brings new hope of occurrence
Only to be dashed away with recognition of the empty reality
Waiting is too much
He can’t wait
He can’t wait
