Final Countdown (poem)

Sitting around waiting for you has proven my hardest challenge

I worry when you are away from me and I fear it is getting harder to try and break free from this anxiety

Knowing full well the day I offend you will be the longest day of the year

I hold my hand to my chest

Fear has gotten the best of this shaken heart and soul

I have a few good friends

They will stand guard until the end

They will make you thrive for air

They will help you feel a little more secure

Let down your hair

Caress each wave in each strand

Feel the rhythm in the groove

The dogs lay so restlessly

Talking to each other in their sleep

Knowing how soon the earth will end

Until then, they relax

Enjoy what time they have left

Casualties will always happen, so make time the best.
