The worst feeling of all
Is neither pain nor fright
It is sitting up and waiting
All throughout the night
Nothing is occurring
To keep me occupied
Nothing but the waiting
To keep me satisfied
The clock ticks slowly by
As my mind wanders far away
Searching frantically for something
To keep insanity at bay

I wrote this poem while waiting up one night waiting to leave on an overseas trip the next day. I believe everyone can relate to these feelings

Yes, I have totally felt this way before.I like this, it's simple, yet deep and conveys the feeling uneasy-ness as well calm, and how your mind can just escape with each second with clock. Well done.

 

If you could comment on some of my work and let me know what you think it would be apperciated.
