Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Anticipation”


Anticipation by DianaCretu

Anxious but growing ever-more excited

Nervously chattering to pass the time

Time that, despite their best efforts,

Icily crawled forward as if nearly frozen

Coolly, a slow breath passes slightly pursed lips

“I’m ready, I’m ready,” like a broken record

Perfect attempts to convince themselves

And patience was never their strong suit

Today, and no other, was the next step forward

Ending the past, and entering into a new future
