Waiting for someone to reply? This is what I do

When I’m waiting for someone to get back to me.

When I’m sat here waiting on their text / call for an hour, a day, a month.

I endeavour to think positively.

I offer a bit of benefit with the doubt.

I don’t sit here wondering.

I don’t watch my phone change minutes and dates.

I second think the last thing I said only once. Determine it reasonable. Never second think it again.

How do I do this?

I assume they’re dead.

I might even hold a funeral.

Why?

Because death is the politest excuse for rudeness.
