A Virgo’s Fall

Deborah Ugo-Omenukwa

Literature Default
a poem by Deborah Ugo-Omenukwa

Don’t have time

Running out of time


I can help


Can’t stand you

You think like a 5 year old

I can’t keep doing this

The stress

Its building up


Take a deep breath and calm down


Don’t have time

To calm down

Got to keep moving

There’s no time to stop

What I’m going to do


Need help?


No , I can do this

I got this

I will finish

Just need to focus

Can’t hand in rushed work


Tick tock


You stupid clock

Just say a little prayer

Amen

Soon this would be over

Don’t worry


Here’s a tissue


Go away


Why would I need a tissue

I don’t crack under pressure like a Libra


I’m a virgo

Can’t I get some respect

I’m not asking for love

I don’t need it


I would love to help you


What is wrong with these stars

I’m an independent woman

I don’t need your pity love

I need to focus


Okay,


I’m...


About...


to...


be ...


She fainted!

That’s what she gets

I offered to help

I saw her scream at the clock

I offered her tissue, she was sweating

She’s probably a virgo

If she is she would be the 5th one this week

Oh how the Virgo’s have fallen.


-Deborah Ugo-Omenukwa

A Virgo's Fall is how being an independent perfectionist can cause someone to fall alone and hard.
