No More Hellos

The phone rang again

She hesitated once more

To take the call now

Would prove that she is not strong

She knows well what he will say

 

She lets it ring on

Becoming deaf to its sound

As he did to her

Knowing she should not engage

So she lets it ring

 

Eventually 

He will come to realize

What he had was not

The kind of love she needed

The phone rings, still no answer

nice piece Lisa referring to the old saying ' absence makes the heart grow fonder' and I'm sure most of us who have been parted from those we have loved and left behind for whatever petty reasons come to find how very true that saying is.

Can't we be bloody fools to ourselves at times!
