Poem: ‘A Weekend Wasted’

‘A Weekend Wasted’

Three days off
With places to go
No wheels on the driveway and
Walking’s too slow

Why did I do this?
I let him decide
My loss of independence
I’m trapped to reside

Familiar evenings
Stuck in my own home
Family enclosing

Yet, I feel so alone

You made your decision
You gave me no choice
Even if I had shouted
You’d ignore my voice

I wish I could leave
To find my own way
Instead, I must wait
At least one more day

Rain

I got myself out of bed about forty-five minutes ago, only to discover the rain on this, my day off. It’s completely destroyed my hope of going to Bath for the day and doing a walk around there. Looking at the forecast, we’re supposed to have intermittent showers for most of the day. I don’t know what I’m going to do to keep myself busy today. Sometimes, the bad weather doesn’t help a mood that’s already on the decline. I feel like just going back to bed and lazing the day away, which is such a waste of a day off work. 😦

Tomorrow’s forecast looks a little drier (but still cloudy), aside from a few hours of fog in the morning (like yesterday, I assume). So, I’m going to try and keep my hopes up that I’ll be able to go to Bath tomorrow.

I’m really struggling with this week’s writing homework as well. We have to write a scene of dialogue that involves some form of conflict. Last week, in the class, we read a scene just like this from No Country for Old Men. All I have in my head are thoughts of writing a fictional dialogue between two people who recently got engaged and that is so wrong! I can’t think of anything else or, where there might be an issue of conflict. I might just have to admit that I couldn’t do the homework this week…

We were almost set with something else, which would’ve involved writing a list of basic descriptions for each of the people you pass on an average day. That sounds quite fun and I imagine that’s what we’ll get set with this week.
