wanting me to start the fire

minutes hours

days weeks

months years

as a teen

just waiting for something

anything

to happen

I was but bored

at wits end

in my little town

wondering where

just where the freaks were

people with stuff going on

& later too much later

I realised

they were waiting on me

to get the party started

hiding behind their doors

wanting me to start the fire

while I made better plans

for moving on
