*Break Glass In Case Of Emergency

*Break Glass In Case Of Emergency


I take my fist

And smash the glass

But

Nothing happens

Except for

A few cuts on my knuckles

The emergency

Continues

Too much coffee

Combined with seeing her with her man

Has my heart

Pounding out of my chest

I am unsure

If she noticed me

But now that I know

She is here

I can’t relax

This heart

Keeps beating

Faster and faster

I am afraid

I’ll pass out soon

I try to look bored

Just in case

She looks up

And see’s me

But it’s hard to control the outside

When the inside is panicking

I thought I was past this…


I punch the glass again


Still


Nothing happens


Just


More cuts.
