Not

as i grow
i keep living this same moment
in different times--
socked feet awaiting shoes;
hair pinned perfectly;
pajama shorts under sweatpants, to be removed later;
staring at the tattoo above my high heel;
watch on my wrist and earrings in my ear--
it doesn't matter
because again i sit
waiting on the phone call that won't come
because you conveniently got tied up
with your oh so busy life
waiting on the text that won't come
because you conveniently fell asleep
without remembering i was waiting on you
waiting on the email that won't come
because you conveniently have your oh so busy life
that doesn't involve me
new day, same shit
and maybe that's because
life is trying to tell me
stop waiting
don't try
let it go
because that phone call
that text
that email
that man
you need more than you like to admit
to yourself
ain't coming
and maybe it's time
you gave that some thought.
