Calm before the storm

I live in constant fear of the calm before the storm.

Watching the gentle waves, waiting for them to grow.

Hearing the soft words, waiting for them to rise.

How long will it be before someone does something wrong?

How long will it be before someone starts to yell?

I know we love each other, yes, I know.

But still I am scared of failing, of letting down.

All these expectations, they crack my mind under their weight.

    love? perhaps. the only thing i know for sure about love, is that there is more to it than I could ever have imagined. what’s the point of expectation? your words are well crafted, hinting at the anticipation..
