JusJoJan: Delivery

Why  can’t I explain how I feel

I am so bloody bored it’s not real.

I should of gone to the gym

But there was a parcel arriving  so I had to stay in!

I asked the neighbours  if they were going out first thing

Unfortunately they were so I had to miss the gym.

I hoped the delivery might come early enough for me to have a walk

But it is three fifteen , no show  another hour up to chalk.

Time is dragging on, leaving a streaky trail, the light is beginning to fade

I want a walk  but it is really  time for dinner to be made!

Aha! at last the doorbell rings the parcel is at last here.

Shall I make dinner or go for a walk, my head to clear.

Why am I in such a grumpy mood

Even when nice thing happen my fears intrude.

The parcel was a present to me

But it had trapped me in and I feel weird you see.

Right my life is just up to me and I must sort it out

First I need a walk because my head is busting and I need to shout.

Then when I return I shall have to cook the meal

Put on some makeup take a pill, practice my smile and lie about how I feel.

We all know this feeling , I am not alone,  so, get on and get real.

    Willow! This is how I feel. ‘practice my smile and lie about how I feel’ simply speaks to me. Love you.
