An Almost Awkward Silence | Teen Ink

An Almost Awkward Silence MAG

By Desiree Golden, Cressona, PA

Dependent upon your words,
I wait to hear.
Something resurrected from my
Childhood hopes.
Locked beneath my own pages,
I’ve waited for this.

Your eyes cheat me.

They hug your cheeks and
Battle monotonously.
For the sake of sanity,
Say those words.

Nervous tensions clutch me,
Drown my securities,
Drain the integrity of my anticipation.

I watch your lips,
Rhythmical trembles of my chest
Choke me, dismantle
my motor skills.

I should have known this.

a poem like this shouldn't have you questioning your ability. especially the ending. "I should've known this". I think the ending made the poem. like icing on the cake...or cake,.. on the icing. good stuff, really good stuff.
