I watch late night television,
wait for the telephone,
no text messages
no late night infomercial
just old shows playing again
as the rain pours outside.
Did you hear the news?
Time waits for no one
so you should use
every second and moment
and not waste a single one
because time is ticking away.
Sat alone watching late night television
as the world continued outside,
counted the seconds with the spinning
moving hands of time on my wall,
wondering if we were ever meant to be
but how can we be if we have not even met?
