Waiting

Waiting for your nails to dry. Waiting for that call. Waiting for news. Waiting for the medication to start working. Waiting for the doctor to find a solution to a condition he doesn't even seem to understand. Waiting for interview results. Waiting for assessment marks. Waiting for hospital test results. Waiting for take away to arrive. Waiting to get to sleep when you have too much on your mind. Waiting to stop getting emotional everytime someone does something nice. Waiting for my heart to slow down. Waiting for my heart to speed up and my blood pressure to rise. Waiting to get better. Waiting for the kettle to boil. Waiting to break up with someone. Waiting to be broken up with. Waiting to find out the whole story. Waiting to show your best friend your new haircut. Waiting for payday. Waiting to remember. Waiting to forget. Waiting to be paid back. Waiting for feedback. Waiting to start treatment. Waiting to finish treatment. Waiting to trust. Waiting to trust again. Waiting for the show to start. Waiting for the wound to heal. Waiting to get over it.

The waiting is the worst part. You ride it out. And then you get to move on.

  1. It's so true. It's all about waiting. And once you are done waiting for one thing, it's onto the next.
    Jacques Lacan said:
    In order to continue to exist...
    desire must have its objects
    perpetually absent.
    It's not the "it" that you want.
    It's the fantasy of"it."
