Remains of the day

The phone, perhaps knows me best
Muted notifications,
Meant to symbolize, 
a lack of importance
Glaringly calling out, 
the spot light, everyday.

The fingerprint sensor, intimately aware
Of the pressure points
As I unlock the screen,
Hoping for that one word..

Why does it drive me so today?
A single word,
Affirmative, hopeful,
The first step maybe..
In a future, full of seen complications

Like a child hoping to test the danger sign
The flame that burns bright,
I move
Not a child for I recognize trouble
But the hope overwhelms and wins.

Words that are never understood
Uncomprehended, despite their simplicity
Float by
I still wait, for the affirmation..
