August 6, 2019 – wall, tall, call, nail, dial, hollow

Four Fridays

Four of the Fridays that
I waited for a call,
presaged the times
my emotions took a fall.

Wait, wait some more but
unwilling to dial,
That person in my life

Wait, with a stomach feeling hollow,
Wait some more, unable to swallow.

From side to side
I rocked and swayed down a hall,
Promised myself this time I exit
not walk into a wall.
