Waiting

He waits…
stays in bed all day,
gets up for food,
plays Minecraft,
sleeps…

he waits…
meets up with friends,
goes to the cinema,
comes home feeling ill,
shivering…

he waits…
spends time with his family,
plays pool with his brother,
shares Youtube faves,
watches TV.

He waits
the holiday out;
goes to work on Monday,
slips back into routine.
The days pass…

She doesn’t call.
He waits.

Yes, lovely feeling of emptiness and isolation even when doing other things.
