A hard right - A narrow miss.
Adrenaline pumps through thinned veins - Two heavy breaths filter through clenched teeth.
And the heart: Beating. Beating. Beating.
Beating in the swelled chest - The body in sync.
Alert. Wanting. Waiting.
Waiting for the next strike.
Eyes fixed on one another.
Hypnotic. Tensed. Readied
They scream through, busted, bloodied, chapped lips
and accent threats with broken knuckles clenched tight.
Beat. Beat. Beat.
Thuds the heart in chest - Anticipation.
Slow. Tortuous. Clockwork.
Who makes the next move? Who lands the next strike? What next?
Readied at one moment - Faltered at the next.
Faltered. Readied. Faltered.
Never resting in complete certainty
Held back wanting to move forward - moving forward wanting to be held back.
Wanting. Waiting. Wavering.

Sounds like that first important kiss in my life.
Anticipation, slow, tortuous, faltered, readied, faltered, wanting, waiting, wavering, ...

Awesome use of adjectives to create motion.

Kathy
