The Waiting Room

I saw my neighbour in the waiting room 

She smiled at me as if we were just passing each other on the street

Long Distance

It was only when I saw you again that I understood how broken I’d been

I hadn’t seen you since the last full moon, every phone call we had turned violent with frustration

So in the unwanted absence of you I’d gone into survival mode
