I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when theyre right, and sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together -Marilyn Monroe

I touch the screen gently;
it lights up
but with nothing to tell,
no message for me.
i wait,
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?
its my coach
telling me practice is canceled.
so i sit,
and wait,
holding my breath,
and watch...

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.
