O the addiction; O the need;
Has anyone, will anyone, email me today?
Each hour, each minute, I must check and see
Has anyone, will anyone, comment on my blog?
If only I didn’t work on a computer all day long;
If only I could get my mind off of it.
Instead, I frantically push “Send/Receive” and wait…
Will there be a new message? Nope.
Is my email broken? That is it! I’ll send a test email to check.
Yeah! I have a new message. Oh, it’s just the test.
O to not wonder why nobody has emailed.
O to not worry that nobody reads the blog.
It only compels me to write more.
It only compels me to email more.
Hoping I’ll make people think, wonder, laugh;
Hoping I’ll become a better writer, thinker.
But most of all, hoping to get more emails.
Looking forward to a full inbox.
I'm obviously not a poet, nor have I ever understood poetry. Just a gal who is realizing a true addiction to checking her email.
