You wait for news

On tenterhooks

Unable to bear it

Unable to not

Will the news

Be good or bad

Perhaps indifferent

Angst and anger

Fear and dread

Nothing you can do

No words that can be said

You wait

Fill your time

Be busy

Not not be present

Your mind overseas

In a generic waiting room




Waiting to hear if she survived.
