Man in the Cube

Shaking, she held the paper in her hand

Raging, she tore the printed sheet in two

Swearing, distraction as her old enemy

Moving, more quickly than ever for she had work to do


Determined, she set off to work on her desk

Frustrated, the 7’s dancing in her mind

Hopeful, the book’s pages sighed as she flipped past

Struggling, the cubic temptation in front was never kind


Weakened, the screen held her gaze for too long

Passive, she let her hands slip from knowledge

Forgetful, the teacher’ll be waiting on his desk

Unaware, the hourglass’s thin sands against her oath and pledge


Surprised, she only had little time left

Panicked, she read her way through the deep night

Exhausted, she fell on the bed yet to finish

Restless, dreams about the incomplete work kept it in sight


Nervous, she dragged herself along the halls

Hesitant, one foot in front of the other

Frightened, saw the teacher standing by the desk

Hopeless, sat on her chair, test no longer a bother


Empty, she had answered all that she could

Impatient, the wait was longer than she thought

Mistaken, come the next day it was given then

Numb, verdict had been delivered, her work all for naught


Enraged, remembered the man in the cube

In love, his perfection flashed in her thought

Bitter, his skills on the screen that had trapped her

Surrendering, knowing his very being was all that she sought


Expecting, she went to collect what should be

Dreading, it was her turn to receive it

Hoping, it isn’t as bad as she expects

Failing, the 7’s on the card did make her want to sit


Shaking, she held the paper in her hand.



Dedicated to all the fangirls out there whose husbands are the reason as to why our grades plummet from the sky. :))
