In the emergency room

I am nervous,
The result of the test is yet to be announced,
The doctors and nurses are wondering around,
And sometimes look at me their regular visitor.

I am nervous,
I am sweating and hoping a relief from this emotion.
The world seems to move in a really slow motion,
And patients are waiting patiently for the doctors’ attention.

I am terribly nervous,
The doctor walks with a handful of papers,
Trying to fake a smile and I am positive,
Yes, I have been diagnosed and tested
And I am HIV positive 
After one night spent with that doctor.
