  3. Without delay I decided to pack in my job and go backpacking through Scotland.
    I met the most interesting olf people in little pubs accross the country.
    I ended up in a small church, talking to the old priest.

  5. I was waiting for you. Standing at the gates looking down the street; where I always see you walking. I look at my watch: you’re late. Or maybe I missed you. I got delayed, but it wasn’t my fault. Stupid bus-driver taking his time. What if you left without me? Or did I get the wrong day? The right time? Oh, that’s okay. I see you now.

  6. My hearts racing and I don’t want to wait. I will wait, but I don’t want to . The seconds are honey, drizzling thickly and getting stuck together taking every minute to extremes. I want to breathe and hurry it along but my breath is to fast and too shallow. I want it now and it wont happen.

  8. a tug on the sleeve
    a word whispered in an ear.
    one smile or twich of the eye.
    our secret movements have it all
    as we delay the boarder guards
    with a slight suggestion
    as to what they might be fighting against.

  10. There was a delay in the train schedule. Sandra hoped Jeff would wait for her at the other end, hoped he would believe that she really needed to see him, hoped that he would smile when she did this time. The train was still not there. She tapped her feet.

  11. This is either the congressman or Tatoo talking about the thing they put around your neck at the hawaii airport

  12. when you are delayed you will not get on time for your appointment, delay can also be when a train comes a bit late, so you have to wait which is pretty annoying.

  13. Delay. Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale. Hold.

    Delay. Delay. Delay.

    Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale. Hold.

    Delay. Delay.

    Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale. Hold.

  14. She paced infront of the arrival board at the airport. His flight was delayed. She was worried, the weather had been horrible. She was surprised they had even left Portland. Her worrisome thoughts were continuously inturepted by the sounds of friends and family reuniting and the constant click of suitcase wheels on the bumpy floor. She sat down and waited, please, please let him be okay were the words she repeated in her mind. Let him be alright.

  15. There’s not much for me to say about you. Your presence in my life like silence, like love, like awaiting my own death. I waited and waited and waited for you. Under a quilt in the living room, I waited. Delay, you bastard. I’m through.

  19. delay is what happens when you feel, when you hesitate. delay is weakness and will leave you dead. If you delay you will be screwed. Thats just that.

  20. Sometimes the delay I feel in my life is astounding. When is my life going to flourish or die. There is such a delay between the desires of obtaining a life filled with accomplishment not only socially but personally.

  21. There was no delay. There couldn’t be a delay. Not today, please, not today, he thought. I can’t stand looking like a fool again. Not if she’s there. For god sake put the money in the account and let me get out of here damnit.

  22. What happened? Why isn’t she here yet? She said she was going to hop a cab – it doesn’t take that long to drive down the island. Why ever would she be late? Am I being stood up? There must be another. She doesn’t love me. She loves another, and not me. How depressing – how typical. Why can’t I ever be loved? Why can’t my love be in this next taxi?

  23. it’s what i try to do when i’m fucking my girlfriend–you have to delay your orgasm so that she can get something out of it, too. women aren’t built to enjoy sex the way men are, so you need to make sure that they get their fulfillment.

    also, it’s what i did about college after high school.

  25. i delay, i should write. i should do all i want to get closer to what i want, that’s what life is, to be better, right? how can it not be better if you don’t delay with what you want? infinite possibilities lead to – everything.

  30. I sat on the bleak gray chairs, itching at my back, gnawing almost. My eyes wondered over the others, reading, playing, waiting. The plane was delayed. As if it wasn’t torturous enough that it had been 13 years since I had left forever.

  31. The hesitation, every time I lift a pen, or put my fingers to the keys and attempt to empty the closet brimming with my reveries.
