The Wait

July 20, 2011

I hate the wait.
The wait for the words
No one wants to here.
Those four lethal words.

You hold your breath
Through the storm,
Never letting on how scared
You really are.

You wait for the smoke to settle
Before you confront it.
But chicken out when the time comes
So you wait for the sonic boom.

I know I won't feel loss,
When it finally comes.
I won't care about his absence.
He's not the first.

I know I'll worry
About her when it comes.
How she's getting along.
How they're all getting along.

But the worst part is the wait.
I hate the wait.
