Night time, endless, everyone’s awake now.
Feeling hungry, eating like a fat cow.
Silently I tip-toe, making sure they don’t know.
Slowly gently, sneak into the kitchen
Grab food, eat it, abandoning ambition.
Turn my face away from the mirror on display, turn my gaze away to save my self esteem.
Then realize we’re all stuck in quarantine.
Close your eyes and pretend this isn’t happening
Life’s so weird, things are getting real bizarre
Can’t believe it’s only been six weeks so far..
And I can’t even go to my favorite bar.
Napping all day, eating when I get bored.
Losing patience, family being ignored
We’re all starting fights over nothing, which feels right.
Knowing we’re all going crazy it would seem.
Then remember we’re all trapped in quarantine!
Instagram showing me another stupid meme
And YouTube until Six in the morning
My cell phone has become my closest friend!
And it feels like this will never end…
It could be worse, longing for connection.
Staying home and fighting the infection.
And essential workers our country’s life preservers
The heroes that are keeping us pristine.
Remembering we’re all here in quarantine!
Praying that they find a new vaccine.
Hoping for the best… in.. quaran.. tiiiiiiine
*A special thank you to our essential workers*
