Timing
By Alfonzo Tucker (Columnist)
Published December 22, 2011

I am lonely, yet not afraid.

 

I long for the type of love that is consistent, not short term, the kind that fades.

 

Society states; “her clock is ticking and soon he will be too old to play.”

 

Yet why should I settle so as to be perceived a certain way?

 

Nighttime is difficult; my sheets are cold yet the thermostat is at 73 degrees.

 

I can submit to a moment of desire yet again that is only temporary.

 

A forced conversation consisting of topics that are not interesting to me,

 

should I act as if I am stimulated or accept that there is no chemistry?

 

I believe in Love and know that love is a blessing.

 

So, I will respectfully wait and prepare myself for our momentous discovery!
