Poets United Attempt #2

I thought I would try the prompt again; I was thinking about something that happened when I wrote the first one, but I thought I would go with random thoughts in my head. Poets United prompt #49 Untitled.
You can see first attempt below(it is about an artist's personality) This is about what happened today.

pressure climbs
waiting mood shifts
name called
Is my blood work okay
why so drained, tired
I want to sleep more than before
low energy, tired, sooo tired
Hear Dr's and nurses laughing
vitals good but tired of listening
just tell me, tell me why so tired
hear files shuffled
shoes squeak on gray linoleum floor
Dr's laughter
Door opens
nerves on edge
chit chat babble
I want facts, numbers, what gives
everything looks good, except your iron
is low and your thyroid is fast
wired n' tired again
story of my life
clock spring needs to be tuned

Glad they found something that can be treated--iron. You captured the waiting for the news feelings well, and those maddeningly ordinary sounds in the doctor's office.
Dave King said…
Yes, I felt the tension too, so congratulations on a fine poem.

It is rough being human...sometimes...but this reveals a moment we'll all know. Really like this poem EE.
ah, my dear, you need a nice half liter big cup of freshly squeezed oranges, lemons, limes and tangerines with a few spoons of honey to chase away the spring tiredness :)

I have a personal hatred of dr.'s offices at the moment and the stress that can be felt in them.
I really hope you hear good news and get some energy back, soon! I'm thankful you're not too tired to write your poetry. :)
many blessings,
Ellen said…

Ellen-Thank you; so nice of you to stop by! I love all your new treasures! You are queen of the find~

Scarlett-Thank you; I haven't been a fan of Dr's since 1987. I was stuck in a hospital for 3 weeks. The Navy couldn't decide what to do with me.

Dezzy-This does sound refreshing; I would love a piece of your cinnamon or vanilla cake ;-D

Ollie-Thank you; yes the Tired Monk would relate to this theme ;-D
