Waiting

written by: Josie Dee

The stories that spin
Weaving, woven, wondering and repeat

In the waiting in the silent din
Whispers, words, wanting in defeat

The habit of time
Passing, pushing, parting and repeat

With each tentative step of mine
Tripping, treading, turning in defeat

Waiting for... What am I waiting for...
Wandering, what I'm watching and waiting for...
A life from the sidelines... a glimpse from outside
A wallpapered retreat is all I can find

Motivation required
Floating, falling, finding and again

To push through what's mired
Gripping, grasping, grappling in vain

The habit of time
Skipping, spinning, slowing in vain

Each torturing thought I find
Weaving, wondering, whirling and again

Waiting for... What am I waiting for...
Wandering, what I'm watching and waiting for...
A life from the sidelines... a glimpse from outside
A wallpapered retreat..? I'll pass this time
