Waiting … by Eli Oko

…Seems like forever

When waiting, it seems like years have passed

Oh, I am waiting for a text

I am waiting for something to make me smile,

My problems to forget

I am waiting for that moment when nothing else compares

Or maybe it does, but I don’t really care.

I am waiting for that light that overtakes the darkness

I am waiting for that moment when our past mistakes are past us

It is amazing how your mind can run whilst you’re waiting for a reply

You wonder what they’re up to, why their taking time

It amazes me when I think about the things I love the most

I like talking to the one that makes me happy, and causes my eyes to glow

I would lie staring at my screen, I would stand fidgeting around

I would walk carelessly back and forth until I hear the sound

I would find every single reason to text them something quick

And convince them to text back promptly semi-colon, bracket, Click

Waiting, can be painful, like an arrow in the, wait,

I think I heard my phone make a sound twice, this is something great!

I run towards my mobile, I snuggle under the sheet,

For at that moment I am thinking about them and they are thinking about me

“Sorry for the wait” I read, and more that I can’t share

For when I receive a text from x… it’s close to me- its dear

So now I’ve sent back “it’s alright” and continued from what they said

But sadly now I’ll have to see if I’m to wait again

Unfortunately I don’t know if their typing, I don’t know if they even have their phone, but I like texting, and even stressing so again I start to moan.

I wonder if they’re smiling

I wonder if they’d care if I took long to send a text

Would they be pulling out their hair?

I guess some things we’ll never know, so were left anticipating

Texts can make you smile or vexed when your sat there… just waiting.

  1. Hi, I think your site could possibly be having browser
    compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your blog
    in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, excellent blog!


Any Thoughts?
