Anticipation - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

I feel drumming waterfalls invading my mind
Thoughts of crashing floods are newly refined
Answers precede questions never asked before
While excitement lures behind every closed door

Standing at the edge feeling the rush of height
Moving with great speed ignoring every red light
Loading a gun feeling the smooth metal in hand
Going over the options to lie in the witness stand

Riding the rollercoaster backwards for thrills
Taking a high stake bet with fake dollar bills
Fingertips tingle feeling the chill of perspiration
Dreams run wild when waiting with anticipation
