Poem: Please Tell Me

The world is coming to an end
Everything is falling apart
I know they love me
but there is something
they are holding back

She knows something and won’t tell me
I ask her to tell me the information
but she tells me I have another appointment
I know she doesn’t want to hurt me
but she’s hurting me more
by holding it back

I talked to her
and she apologized
She told me she wanted
the doctor to tell me,
but that would be a month and a half
after the test I said.

It was bothering me
not knowing.
It was hurting
because it was my life
and she wouldn’t tell me.
