suspense . . .

He loved the tingling
it stated in his toes.
The numbers counted down
his skin came alive from inside
when he heard the words
coming ready or not . . .

It felt like that when he waited with the others
the candles were lit. . .

And this time . . .
behind the door 
he barely breathed
he had the ring
ready in his hand.

my first go at Illustration Fridays  . . . each Friday they post a new topic  - "It was designed to challenge participants creatively. We believe that every person has a little creative bone in their body. Illustration Friday just gives a no-pressure, fun excuse to use it." -  want to have a go?
