Meaning of Spanish phrase/ poem

Hi everyone!

I am a learner of Spanish and would like to know what the following phrase might mean to those who are native/ very good speakers:

Sal. Que estoy esperando el momento de decirte que estoy harto.



Thanks in advance!

Isa

Well, actually the connection between `sal´ and the second sentence. I know `sal´ is an imperative of `salir´, and the second sentence means something like "I am waiting for the moment to tell you that I´ve had enough", doesn´t it? But what means `sal´ in this context? `Go away´?

Without the whole context, I think it means "come out"... that would be the speaker demanding that the other person shows up and he can finally say what he feels.

Ah, ok. I am not really sure about the context, that makes it a bit difficult. But thanks, that was a great help.

I see. For me, it is as if the other person kept hiding from the speaker, and then he'd want to finally face the other and talk.

If the meaning of "sal" were "go out", when the other leaves, the speaker wouldn't have a chance to say what he intends to.

Ok, that helps me even more. The context I imagine it to be does imply that these two need to talk. Your helped a lot, thanks!
