Flash Poem # 8 ” The Wait “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “




Alright I’ll wait

but don’t try to slow down my gait

If you come through

We’ll dance until we turn blue

there is a piece of me that will never say die

never tell a lie

about this thing

this feeling

this rose-colored dream

so I accept the fear

I’ll just have another beer

and wait…
