People lost in thought

Muted conversations

Future unknown

Waiting for your name

Waiting with hope

Waiting with fear


Staring unseeing, words on paper

The clock ticks on

and on

An explosion of sound

tick tick tick

Hands drag slowly round


A door opens, heightened awareness

Not you

Not this time

Retreat back in your mind

Waiting for prophecy

Waiting for life


Feet shuffle on smooth hard floors

Trepidation greater than faith

Anxious mind dulls your senses

You wait

Surrounded by people

You feel alone
