This Time

I sit in my room
Waiting to hear that phone call
the one I've been waiting for
the one you promised to make to me
But nothing, not even a letter came

Days and days went by
I never left the phone
I waited for a letter
nothing ever happened

weeks, months went by
I waited for your call
Maybe even a letter
never did I get it
never recieved one sinlge call

But this time
I stopped waiting for you to remember
stopped waiting for you to call
not thinking of your letter
the very thought of you was gone

A delightful read C B! ! Very well executed, hope to many more of your poems in the near future! ! Tanks for sharing! *10*! ! Best regards, Friend Thad
This hits the spot, the trials and frustrations played out throughout this piece till the end, where you finally accepted a place where you could move on I can relate to so much of what you say Love duncan X
Very well thought out piece, great emotion drips down the page, it really can be difficult persuading our hearts to forget, but i think its more about accepting what has gone, or lost is the healer. nicely penned C.B......10 from me Stay strong best wishes Jon
