Waiting

Waiting.

Different than anticipation.

Or impatience.

Impatience is not being willing to sit in the moment or present.  A friend said to me it simply equals being afraid.  He's right.

Anticipation is excitement about what is to happen.  Titillation about what's to come.

See:  Tim Curry singing Sweet Transvestite in Rocky Horror.

I see you shiver with antici……………………………………pation.

But waiting. Ugh.

It's passive.

Pregnant with worry.

Inaction.

Insert barfing emoji.

The waiting room.

The hallway.

The foyer.

The ante-chamber.

Hold/elevator music.

The queue.

Have a seat.

When will something happen?

When do we walk into the room?

Get the news?

Pop the question?

Leave?

Get on with it.

Life is about making choices

Asking questions, getting answers,

And taking action.

If I make you wait,

You may slip through my fingers.

Don't make me wait too long

You may lose my attention

Or a heart

Or a vote

Or my time.

And that's way worse than

The.

Waiting.

Time waits for no one.

Activate.

Stuck sucks.
