Waiting

First Date

I waited

You promised that you'd come

My heart began to thrum

I waited

You still sight unseen

Nothing but a dream

I waited

Outside in the blazing heat

Sweating and squirming in my seat

I waited

For you to come along

All a promise from a song

I waited

With hitched and baited breath

That shook me too my depth

I waited

For the coming fated hour

Shoulders bracing not to cower

I waited

Wondering if you would be

The very thing I thought I'd need

I waited

With no recourse if you were not

All the things I'd dreamed and thought

I waited

And then you arrived

And it was anti-climatic
