Alone and Waiting

Alone and Waiting
 on a cold, dark, rainy day

Raindrops hit my roof,
and it sent subtle sounds to my ears.
Alone, I lay lazily on my foamed airbed,
thinking of the earlier phone call.

My heart was set ablaze,
before my hands had the courage to dial.
Then, as I spoke, the excitement
in my voice betrayed me of what I truly felt.

I patiently waited,
thinking of nothing, but you.
I knew you'd come.
You'd come a midst the heavy rain.

The doorbell revealed your presence.
My heart skipped with joy.
My stomach rumbled.
My mouth began to salivate.

As I gave you the exact change,
you showed me your perfect smile,
"Five Cheese Pizza Delivery".
And there was a sun on my rainy day.

Thank you, Mister Delivery Boy for battling the rain.

The title would have been Alone, Hungry and Waiting, but that would give everything away. Lol. Hope you enjoyed this. :)
