A Blasted Patience

Waiting
A burr in my sock
A stone in my shoe

Waiting
A panther paces a cage
Back and forth to nowhere, soon

Waiting
Restlessness gnaws at ankles
Like a puppy held back from a ball

Waiting
All dressed up, but nowhere to go
Devilish boy, I got no number to call

Waiting
In every face, peering
Looking for that recognition

Waiting
A dime a dozen they come
But dagnabit I look only for one

  1. Beautiful poem… Very well penned, Noelle!
    This stanza stands out!:
    “Waiting
    In every face, peering
    Looking for that recognition”.
    Eloquent, indeed… 🙂
    All the best to you!, Aquileana 😀

    • I’ll have to look back and see where the inspiration came from. I think it was either an article or someone else’s blog talking about old love letters. Got me to thinking what would I write, in this moment, to the person I’ve never met. Was actually sort of fun to write it.

    • I’m really trying to work on the pacing of my writing. I don’t often write traditional poetry, but I like free pose pieces. Still you need to find that rhythm, as you note. Thanks for stopping in. Always a pleasure.
