She never came

Updated on April 28, 2018

I sat and sat,

and waited and waited

yet she never came.

I ate my cereal one by one,

cradling the cheerios on my spoon,

yet she never came.

I sat even longer,

I ate even slower,

yet she never came.

I licked my milk like a newborn kitten,

barely getting a drop each taste,

yet she still never came.

I sat and sat even longer

I cleaned the bowl and the other dishes,

yet she still never came

Finally the time struck 12,

the music of the clock began to play.

This was it.

I had enough,

so I went up to fetch the girl myself.

There she was still asleep snuggled in her bed.

I whipped her cover right off and threw the pillow at her head.
