Waiting with #breast cancer

Anyone who’s experienced cancer treatment, or is going through treatment at the moment will identify with the endless appointments and time spent waiting. It’s a lonely time, particularly with coronavirus.


I’m Waiting…

Waisting time

Again

My life ticks

Away

No book 📖 

No phone 📞 

No newspaper 📰 

To settle into

As coronavirus reigns

Boredom remains

🌷🌸 🌷🌸🌷

One hour

Or three

Today

I’m feeling lucky

Maybe

Two hours…

My legs feel dead

I’ve been sat so long

I’m past caring

The outcome,

Whatever

🌷🌸🌷🌸🌷

I’m surrounded by

Pink

Flowery pictures;

🌷 🌷 

I feel smothered

In this moment 

My name is called

Reality beckons me now

I have breast cancer 

Why is it

Pink

and flowery?

🌷 🌷
