I wrote this one

While hanging on

For a reply to a particular text

As I had shown it

I thought I’d blown it

And wasn’t sure what was next

As it was

It was just a pause

As you wrote back in earnest

And so then I knew

I still had you

And that my effort was worth it


The relief
is palpable

My anxiety
is pacified

Our normality
is restored

Thank fuck
you replied
