Let’s talk weekends

These days are full

Not like they used to be

With joy, laughter, excitement

These days are filled with dread

Because the shock is gone

No longer do I wait for him

There is no looking at the door

Hoping he walks through

The dread is knowing

Weekends are the days in which

We are not working

Not busy enough in our minds

We allow our thoughts to roam

Like they are nomads or gypsies

No real home

Just stopping by

Setting up camp

Long enough to be noticeable

Then disappearing, fading away

Leaving a mental footprint

Nothing else

Knowing the dread will come back

Scares me

Because I know it brings pain

It brings sadness

Loneliness, guilt, angst

So, let’s talk weekends
