Relax they say. Relax as each month brings you closer to zero. Relax as you get prodded and poked. Relax as your life consists of announcements, showers, and parties. Relax as people ask you why you don't have the very thing you yearn for. Relax as you watch people squeam in discomfort when you speak of your experience. Relax into the appointments. Relax into the inconclusivity. Relax into the exclusivity. Relax into the cost of it, mentally. Relax into the cost of it, financially. Relax into the knowledge that from here on in chances become slimmer. Relax when you sense other's pity. Relax when you are a control freak and know you can only control so much. Relax when people say the weirdest things. As soon as you relax it will happen they say. You just need to be positive they say. What will be will be they say. When it is right, it will happen they say. The moment you stop thinking about it, it will happen they say. You're still young they say. It could be worse they say. It hasn't been that long they say. Relax they say. Relax as pleasure fades. Relax as you take vitamins and limit the things you love to prime your body. Relax as you wonder if it will ever happen. Relax as you grieve each month for the loss of something you have never had. Relax when it surrounds you, it is all consuming, and you wonder why not you. Relax after you had hope and know you are due to repeat the same cycle all over again. Relax they say.
Relax they say. 

Relax as each month brings you closer to zero. 
Relax as you get prodded and poked. 
Relax as your life consists of announcements, showers, and parties.
Relax as people ask you why you don't have the very thing you yearn for.
