Anxious excitement (Slice of Life: Day 5)

Anxious excitement…
you want to make life happen
Another minute is too late
Your body is convinced it is capable
of changing the clock

The rush of booking a plane ticket
The curiosity sitting on a bus
to drop you off at your next destination
The thrill looking out the window of the train,
loving each view more than the last
Waiting to be reunited with a special someone,
trying to guess what the details of his face will look like
when he sees you again

It’s the moment after ordering your food,
It’s the first tear in a gift’s delicate wrappings
It’s the seconds that feel like hours
It’s almost as powerful as the moment of fulfillment,
the moment your thirst is quenched
And leaves you wanting one more sip.
