Limbo, ahhhhhh!

I’m in limbo, frustration constantly

Knot in my stomach waiting impatiently

Awaiting the days just to trickle past

Feeling like a novel, feeling, well, alas

Annoyed, biting into my hands

Each meal I eat increasingly bland

Ahhhhhhh I want to scream would it help?

If I punch myself and make myself yelp?

Tell me please I need to know

Why this constant suffering, this woe?

Trying to read, play, sleep even clean

Lol the last time I did, the floor actually gleaned

Motivation zero, what is even the point?

Nothing will make it better, not even a joint

What will I do? What choice do I have?

Just bloody sit here and hope it will not last


My new book “Rhyming poetry to change your day” is now available in paperback and kindle formats.

Waiting is a horrible thing

What is this news gonna bring?

Is it positive? is it a yes?

Did I do what was asked of the test?

Is it negative? is it a no?

Do I drown myself into my sorrow?

This is killing me, hours and days

Walking around in my own haze

Checking my phone for a buzz or a ring

“When you going to ring you poxy thing!”

I can’t stand it, it’s getting too much

How can one response cause such a fuss

The phone rings, lights up at last

I was quick, super quick, lightning fast

I wait anxiously, saying hello

Is it good news, or just another blow?

Hello, I have spoken to them, this is the news

Thank you, I hold my breath, win or lose?
