Pacing to the front door and back
Only to peek out of my door
To check the streets again minutes later.
Looking through the window
And watching the street outside.
I check for every person that passes
Before stalking back into my room.
I welcome distractions and doorbells
That sends me running to the door,
Hoping for some information about your bus delayed.
This waiting game has always frustrated me.
I can feel the anticipation,
Weighing heavy on my chest.
Why don’t you call home using the driver’s cell phone…!!
I go back to my room and try and distract myself
I write and chat with other people on social media;
Facebook. Whatsapp. WordPress.
But still, can’t find a topic that won’t let the worry show.
For every minute that you’re late
Thousands of thoughts cross my mind
And mind you, not all are positive.
Even though my fingers itch…
To yank my car keys from the key stand;
Open the garage and pull at my car’s front door,
I find myself pausing by my front door and
Wondering when you might come knocking.
Then just as suddenly… I hear the sound of the door open
And am I relieved that you’re back home….!!!
“It was just a regular traffic jam on the bridge mum,”
You say nonchalantly, as you head for your bedroom to wash and change
And I start laying out the lunch,
On the table for another meal together.
