Make sure to Call Collect........

Reflections per se..... aren't they only
visions of our inner selves
Only truths forgotten for so long lying
on the dust begotten shelves

I see you now .....more even than ever
as if you were still much alive
And not just in the little diners and bars
but in all the other dives

And didn't you say once ....."Yea I know I drink
a bit much"
But it wasn't like you didn't have a reason
even your hands were out of touch

I picked you up too often then
I think you missed your curtain call
Though you cared not about the play
just the lime light was all

Kicking out the footlights .......a favorite
habit of yours
You would have hidden behind the curtains
if it wasn't for the open tours

Damned , if it wasn't for the drama I would not
feel a thing at all
To hell with you..... they just don't get it.......
I won't except the call

Your title is perfect. The ones who watch in pain and try to pick up the pieces are forever "taking calls" sometimes literally. I always accept the call however. Most of us do.

Sometimes tough love is all they need and other times they need you to answer the call. But the most nerve wrecking thing is you never know which call is the on that means life or death, so I say answer the call all the time for you don't ever want to regret not doing so.

Jami , Thank you ! I wrote this about those of us who were always picking up the pieces of another persons life, I personally can't do that anymore. It costs me too much ,emotionally!.....Thank you for understanding.
