NaPoWriMo Day 18

To Something

I’m looking forward to something.

If I’m not looking forward, I feel I’m digressing.

When there’s something to look forward to it comes as a blessing.

So look forward to something.

Even if that something you look forward to’s a sin,

Nothing wrong with you simply looking forward to a drink,

Be it coffee or gin.

Looking forward to your darling and making them sing.

I can’t think of anything better to look forward to.

But knowing there’s a holiday approaching’s good too.

Looking forward to a smoke,

Looking forward to some food

Even if that food’s rubbish,

You just close your eyes and relish in the thought that it’s coming to you.

At least you’ve got something to look forward to.

I’m looking forward to a movie,

Looking forward to a smoothie,

Looking forward to the next book or poem that truly moves me

And if it doesn’t move me in the moment as expected,

At least the feeling of excitement was never neglected as I was getting restless looking forward.

I’m looking forward to the end,

But I won’t say “can’t wait” because then I pretend

That between now and then there’ll be nothing else true

That I’ll have nothing else to look forward to.

I’m looking forward to something.

Look forward to something.
