Poetry (Day 278): Deadline

Deadline

 

My relationship
with deadlines
is complicated.

They hover around,
edging closer,
hoping I will acknowledge
their presence
with a nod and a smile
or a come hither glance.

But they are mostly
disappointed.
I make excuses
and tell them,
I’ll see you next week.
I promise.

But I don’t want
to disappoint you.
So, that thing you want,
it will be done before
the 35th of October.
I promise.
