Diagnosis I

Waiting for the diagnosis,

Waiting for the hammer to fall.

Anticipating the darkness,

Communicating with the shadow

Meeting him at the door.

  1. If this is autobiographical – my heart goes out to you, and I’d pray for you if I wasn’t an atheist. ❤
    If not, as someone who has waited for a diagnosis – amazingly well captured.
    Either way, it's beautifully written – so much said in so few words.

    1. Thank you, Kate. Yes it is autobiographical. Luckily the doctor thinks it isn’t malignant. But still now that I have had tests and am waiting for the results it is difficult not to be consumed by the wait.
      Thank you so much once again,
