Eyelids heavy.


 


I listen to the droning,


drowning


voices of my classmates.


They add their opinions.


The professor nods.


And I start to pass out.


            Then I think of you


             less than three minutes


             away from me


             where you hide


             and avoid talking to me.


I close my eyes and nod


my head to the rhythm


of the poetry being read


aloud


by miserably untalented


readers.
            Then I think of you


             less than three minutes


             away from me


             where you hide.


           


            Where I leave you to


             your hiding.

Sweet imagery I can almost visualize you sitting in a stuffy classroom while some boring prof reads the masters to the class.
I can even feel you nodding offffffffffff....zzzzzzzz Oops, nice write for sure Mia
