I Wait | Poem

Patiently, I wait

As the sun pierces through

And the first light of dawn appears

As the gloomy night becomes glazed over

And shadows hastily disappear


Patiently I wait

As the thousandth seminar finally ends

And I wearily shut the tenth book of the day

As I sit, urging time to pass by

And that voice whispers, ‘how could you desire time to pass?’


Patiently, I wait

As one of Madame Tussaud’s figures

And fixed in time, passing time

As the light house lady

And staring out across the vast ocean


Madness, they say

Nothing but madness to wait this long

And still, patiently, I wait.
