My Own Spectre
I watch and wait
Standing over my own forlorn soul
Seconds ticking by
Snapping the scene
Not knowing what will develop
Hoping someone will notice
I stand and attend my weary heart
But no relief comes
See me dammit
Praise me and make me smile
Before I die of longing
Haunted by yesterday
Tomorrow always running
Just a fraction ahead
Of this moment.
This week's poem prompt from Blockchain Poets is "Patience", something that we can all use a little more of.
If you follow me regularly you might have seen my film photos. This was taken on my Argus Argoflex with the not so sharp focus. It's a double exposure, taken on Arista Edu 400 and developed in Caffenol as always.
Photography, especially film, takes a ton of patience. It's not like my digital SLR that I can just look at the back and see results. I have to wait until I finish a roll and develop it to know what I got. I kinda like this gem.
It also takes patience to post and put one's self out there. It can be agonizing to wait for notice. I hope this poem conveys that idea.
