The Other Shoe - Poem by Pandora's Box
The Other Shoe
Tests are negative
But the words you hear
'No evidence of disease'
Are only a temporary comfort.
'We think we see something'
'It's probably nothing'
You know it is.
Because.....that's what they said
Seven years ago.
It's the other shoe.
The one you've been waiting for
The shoe that drops
More months of tired and sick.
And you sit in the waiting room,
Also waiting for their other shoe.
Hoping this is not the day it drops..
But it is.....right there on the ultrasound.
It's biopsy time....
I hate biopsy time.
