She Waits


All around, it's so quiet you could hear her heartbeats
Quickening as she came closer, and closer, and closer
They'll be together again for the first time in a long time
Her heart racing, her stomach in flutters, she waits.

She's used to waiting, she's waited for months
And hours each day, staring at the offline icon
Months of anticipation and longing built up inside
She let out a breath she was keeping in her lungs.

As she planned, she'd brought a notebook and a pen
To write down details, so they could be recalled again
She scribbled, and sketched, and erased, and wrote
The page reflected her thoughts- beautifully illegible.

A familiar thought crossed her mind, as expected
What if it won't be as perfect as I imagine?
What if conversation won't flow and there'd be silence?
What if I'll have nothing to say?


And then, her mind was generous enough to think
About ways to fill silence without using words
Damn catch, she thought, and bit her lip
Falling into daydreams of the day ahead.

All around, it's so quiet you could hear her heartbeats
Quickening as she came closer, and closer, and closer
They'll be together again for the first time in a long time
Her heart racing, her stomach in flutters, she waits.

    You know those times when you have an emotion and you just want to do something about it right there and then? That's this poem. I wrote it in about a minute, and I wouldn't have it any other way. (:
