How do you guys handle this waiting without going off the rails?

Now we're going right off the rails waiting for you
twirling twigs amid senseless gales waiting for you
you are everywhere! you are in everything! why then
are we chasing our own damn tails waiting for you?
when you grant a ruinous sip of your ruby wine
life's insipid fare thenceforth pales waiting for you
on our pilgrimage who lies hidden in each stray stone
while we wander through hills & dales waiting for you?
nothing to seek! save what's sequestered deep the heart
God dwells everywhere yet our tale is waiting for you
is your silence an open secret waiting to stun?
we continue when all else fails waiting for you
when you hinted how Raphael might attain your kiss
was there mention of thorns & nails waiting for you?
