A Little Push

No one understood.
I’d been suffering with this,
For far too long.
But maybe this all,
Was too delicious a sense,
To spit out.
It was time to decide.
To choose.
All I needed was a little push,
In either direction,
It didn’t matter which,
Just one.
I trudged along,
Searching for the nudge.
A stop sign said no.
A green light said yes,
Don’t you want to see,
What’s on the other side?
I passed a window,
Where sound burst forth,
Threatening to shatter,
My eardrums.
Maybe I’ll go inside and choose.
The sound of the bell,
On the door,
Is inaudible.
Yet, hopeful.
I walk down an aisle,
And glance at the covers,
Begging for decision.
Nothing comes.
Then, a spark.
Like a light turning on,
I notice a bright color and a catchy beat,
A song is calling to me.
But what are the lyrics?
The title?
Heaven Can Wait.
