Good News Please!

Pacing back and forth

Waiting for word 

Hoping for good news

My impatience grows

Biting my nails, unaware that I’m doing this

Phone still motionless

Anxious for any news

Times a complete mess 

The hours going by fast and the minutes are slow

Looking up to the ceiling and back down to the ground

Can’t sit still someone tell me something

A BUZZ and fly to my phone


Slam the phone

I can’t take this anymore

I stomp to the kitchen to make myself a drink

Grab the liquor and soda, put some ice in a glass

Take a sip, and then BUZZ!

I shot off running to my phone in the living room


I face plant as I trip on a chair leg

I don’t care about the news anymore

Just want my face to stop hurting

Day #64 SJD
