#wpad July challenge - A piece of my writing

A PIECE OF MY WRITING

I wrote this as part of The Poetry School online course in Villanelles.  The object of this exercise was to use enjambment.

I Cannot Play the Waiting Game

I cannot play the waiting game with you
while roads remain unchartered out of here,
for when the sun is shining cares are few.

I want excitement! Everything that’s new
is like a boat that’s meant for me to steer.
I cannot play the waiting game with you

when chances beckon, call and coax and woo.
I can’t hold back; my pulses race and cheer,
for when the sun is shining cares are few.

My heart begins to stir and that’s my cue;
then morning skies come creeping blue and clear.
I cannot play the waiting game with you.

Nor can I stay when all within my view
are rainbow wishes leading me from here,
for when the sun is shining cares are few.

I know that to myself I must be true
and wasted chances fill heart with fear.
I cannot play the waiting game with you,

for when the sun is shining cares are few.
