    [poem] And so I wait,

    And so I wait,

    What causes me to be here
    What reason do I take

    What causes me to be still
    My reason is opaque

    And so I wait,

    Two hours since
    I received by wire
    A message from her, yet
    I choose not to retire

    To the sleep that calls

    And so I wait,

    Thirteen days since
    Valentine’s day
    A present left at her door
    And taken away
    By the one it is for

    And so I wait,

    A week from then
    I received by phone
    A message court
    Not long
    About the gift dropped
    At her door

    And so I wait,

    A message by wire
    A call from the screen
    A note passed between nodes
    On an information stream
    A series of words
    Passed between her and I

    “It’s getting late”
    She speaks to me
    “I cannot wait”
    “To leave you here
    for heaven’s sake
    but I must take
    not a moment late
    goodbye
    you’ve been great”

    She leaves

    The door closes on the liquid screen

    Not a moment
    Not a word

    And so I wait,

    And so I wait,
    --------

    I used to be really good at this. ^_^

    Wow, very nice poem. I like the references to computer stuff (IMing/LCD screen), and the poem's story is well told and is concluded superbly.
