Finding Time

Form: Free Verse

Appointments for this
and then that
a coffee with Fred in between
a mad dash to pick up a prescription
then grab a bite on the run
I have forgotten what time is
my diary is set to overload
why didn’t I just say no like I meant to
instead my lips said ‘yes’
and, again, my life is put on hold
like the pile of DVDs I am going to watch
when I get the time
along with a growing stack of books
waiting to read
and I am waiting to read them
to curl up in my silence
and just read
this poet has to say ‘no’
then maybe I will get time to write
