I touch the screen gently;
tenderly.
it lights up
but with nothing to tell,
no message for me.
i wait,
sitting
staring
begging
for you to reply,
to say you like me too,
that you care,
that you dont want me to say goodbye.
so i sit,
the screen black,
then it lights up!
is it you!?
are you giving me your heart,
as i ave given you mine?
no,
its my coach
telling me practice is canceled.
so i sit,
and wait,
holding my breath,
and watch...
waiting...

I really love this idea. I think it could have been developed a little better...but I know we all can relate to sitting and waiting for the screen to light up, just like you said. Nice.
