Waiting, in anticipation of times to come
A steady rhythm of noise and laughter
Flocks of people rushing before my eyes
Relentlessly pushed forward by digital clocks
Just shadows on my mind

Embracing couples left and right
Quick romance and long-stem roses
Floating kisses and tears good-bye
Hearts pounding, erotic thoughts
Longing for an island to break away

For a moment only

And amidst all their liveliness
Weightless, like a vacuum
My relics detached from the world
Unnoticed passing their happy faces
Numbness amplified by the scenes beheld

Exhaustion and silence within myself
Yet a faint flame of a dream kept alive
And when my ship comes in the harbor
I will be waiting at the airport
In anticipationů

This is a great poem, Venusfly.
It is very descriptive...
Your day will come and when it does, ie=t will be fantastic..
Well done!
