Waiting up.


When you decide to wait up
for your roommate to come home from her date,
you're in for the long haul.

Seriously.
So much drooling on the couch.


But it's worth it.

No girl should walk in,
starry-eyed,
from a nearly magical evening
and have to
proceed 
straight 
to 
bed.

There should be someone
drooling on the couch,
waiting to hear her dreamy sighs
and giggle with her
and watch the awe on her face
as she stares into space.

And it's nice to be that someone waiting,
who gets to take part in
the fresh excitement,
and not the tempered feelings
of the next morning.
