HOW COME YOU DON’T CALL ME ANYMORE!

I wait for the phone to ring,
Today, tomorrow and the next
Nothing comes through
Sometimes I think I heard it ring
Sometimes I believe it rang
Other times I know it rang
I realize I am day dreaming
The usual daydream
I tend to have conversations by myself
Silent ones other times verbal ones
I fall asleep thinking about you
I wake up thinking about you
You don’t call like you used to
My girlfriends say I am tripping
I miss you
I would give anything to have the man that loved me
The man that would do anything to have my time
The man that begged to be with me
The man that would come to my place of work
Wait till I am done
And walk me home
The man who called me in the middle of the night
Just to listen to my sleepy voice
And ask how my day was
If I had a choice
I would ask for that man back.
I would want that broke man back.
Without the money he was truly the man.

SOMETIMES.

Don’t you sometimes wish there was a button you could reset,
To make things right or take us back to what we were before.
I know it is hard to be what we were before.
To turn back time would be impossible.
Be friends and not cross that line
It was magical and spontaneous.
Waking up in the morning,
Lying next to each other.
The shock and the guilt made us part without words.
No hug goodbye
Too shy to kiss let alone say I am sorry.
I pick up the phone and call just to hear your voice.
As soon as you pick up the phone I hang up.
It feels like I am prying.
I wonder,
Do you go through the same?
Do you think of me like I think of you?
Do you wonder what it would be like if we, if we?
We sit at the same table
Our spouses at our sides
We are fidgety and nervous
No words to say what we feel
Our eyes have a conversation
If they knew
What do you think they would do?
We meet again
This time we don’t talk neither do we apologise.
Our bodies say it all
And say what we feel.
