You waited on me. And I waited on you
I told you I was waiting. And I knew you were waiting for me too
We both made a promise to wait forever.
But that promise was larger than the both of us.
Everyone has to start somewhere
But he never knew it was so difficult.
Cogs, gears, springs and screws laid around him in a messy circle
and they were scattered all over the work desk.
Tunnel vision is his strongest suit anyway
And right now it was trained on the central gold-piece
A tong in a hand, a screwdriver in the other,
He stared with squinted eyes magnified a thousand fold
Fiddle, twiddle, a click and a snap,
His eyes widened
Was that it?
Was he done?
He attached the housing, screwed it shut,
inserted the battery, gave it life.
Tick Tick Tick, it was music to his ears.
Word count: 108
I feel like an owl
who gets sent back and fro
Always with a weight to carry.
I feel like a flea
Tangled and trapped in fur
Forcibly feeding off my host.
I feel like an animal
Placed on the wrong side of the glass
Witnessing the world pass me by.
