Available

by Abigail Gronway

There’s a room for me here
but not the one I want.
The room I’ve chosen is not available.
He has chosen me too.
He invites me in
yet will not turn on the light.
In the shadows he
plays with me
dances with me
eats with me
but he says I cannot stay.
Not now.
Not yet.
So here I sit
in the lobby
waiting
for his room to come
available

  1. “There’s a room for me here

    These lines, as well as the last few lines (“So here I sit in the lobby waiting for his room to come available”) are brilliant. You have an interesting way of painting this setting, this image in reader’s heads. Of all the poems I’ve come across (I love looking for other poets here on WordPress), this is definitely one of my favorites.

    Just followed, looking forward to more of your material. Thanks for sharing-
