I Know You're Waiting For Me

Anonymous (@) 9 years, 2 months ago

I can see your thoughts.

They’re not hidden, though you would prefer that they are.

Your secrets are not secluded.

I share them.

I think we think of each other at the same time.

Maybe even at the same moment.

It is not often that I see you.

I want to imagine more than my thoughts.

I want to analyze yours.

Will you let me?

Or will you wait?

Will you capture the moment?

Or will you let it escape?

Fuck!

I love privacy.

But I love your presence more!

I know you notice.

I know you hesitate.

I know we can relate.

I know that we can find the time to enjoy each other’s company.

No work is involved.

Only laughter.

Only opportunity.

Does that mean anything to you?

It means something to me.

You smile when I am around.

Is it because of my looming presence?

Or a mere coincidence?

It is no coincidence that I see you smile.

It is no coincidence that I smile when I see you.

It is ironic.

The space between us.

You are in my mind.

And I am in your way.

I am in your way for a purpose!

I am not a blockade!

I am an opportunity!

Just like you!

I am just like you!

The time we waste contemplating our differences…

What differences?

The fact that you are there, and I here?

The only fear is fear itself.

Just be yourself.

One of my alter egos will find you.

Or maybe one of yours will find me first.

We will all win this race.

You’re on every side of me.

Waiting.

I… really don’t think so. But, more than one race for both of you.

@optimystic, I enjoyed it too. I just don’t like the waiting part. Especially when I’ve already read other things from you about taking action, this kinda annoyed me personally. :D

@beyond, Sometimes I write just to write.

@optimystic, Me too. That’s why the world is full with beautiful misunderstandings.

@optimystic, This is really great, it speaks to the reader (or at least me) and I really enjoyed how the lines weren’t drawn out but short. Also, the quote you used, about entertaining a thought is one of my favorites. That is one of my favorite qualities in a person, when they understand just because you are contemplating something doesn’t mean that you have to believe it.

@optimystic, I read it from the bottom up. So I guess that was wrong. But I saw where you were coming from instead of where you were going.. So I guess it was ok. Thanks

@winslow, There is no wrong way to read a thought.

I appreciate your attention, and I am happy to hear it evoke a reaction.

This is beautiful. It speaks to me in many ways. True art, man.

@mardancr1, It’s not art, but I appreciate the compliment anyways!

I’m elated to hear it had resonated with you.
