Anticipation


Heart set aflutter
frantic thumping
sheen of shine
on flaming skin

Damp palms
dry lips
Breath catching
in the throat

Sick with
anticipation
Butterflies riot
in the stomach

Smooth the
dress down
tuck errant
strands away

Hide emotions
behind dark glasses
Pretend not to
notice his wave

Mask’s in place
Smile calmly
Inside, a
volcano erupts
