Turn Time until our Anniversary Arrives

Turning Time Arriving at our Anniversary.. 

Time teases and takes its’ own sweet time to torment me 
Whilst I perfect a pout, practice patience and remain plagued 
I count, chant, collect, create and call for calm, I cast out chaos 
I search for signs that signal, spell out and summon new seasons 

Choosing only to celebrate when the cycle is complete 

Mandatory movements map out motions in minute milestones   
Somehow I am still stung scarred stained by our spell of a story 
Restless I religiously resort to rituals to restore some reason 
Keeping calm and collected I complete the calibration of my calendar 

I work through the waiting, I start to welcome it in 

Come on come on come on, come on now, come round now, come round 
Our appointment, the event, our occasion, our anniversary eventually arrives 
Making this moment a mandatory milestone of a memory in the official past 
I waited and wished, deep in the deceit of my denial, I wished time away

    How many people wish there hours seconds and days away? Instead of being present they hang there dreams and expectations on the signposts of their lives. If only we could treat each day as an anniversary and appreciate the ones we have been blessed with. Again an excellent piece that gives me pause to contemplate.
