After the long wait

The clock is only a minute away

And I stare longingly at it

Urging it to hurry up and move

Why did it suddenly have to slow down

Just when it was so close

The clock

Glares menacingly at me

And I leer back

Not daring to blink

In case I miss it

And then



But only then did I realize

That I'd wasted several minutes of my life

Over something
