The Phone Was Ringing (poem)

Updated on February 23, 2014

The phone was ringing on the day they kissed

A shining sun had followed morning mist

And dreams of after madly still persist

What special something was the scent she missed

-

Sweet melodies of love she did enlist

Reminder of what heartbeats now consist

As feelings ran beyond what words could say

She never knew before such things exist

-

There was so much of truth she did resist

The winds of spring felt softer in this way

She hid aside the blossoms of decay

For her they were but passing seasons’ gist

-

But as he left her life took on a twist

A note a cloud a shadow to her day

The answer to those mornings of dismay

The truth which she resisted was not play

-

Was then her flow of tears would turn world grey

How could a love so faithful one betray

Was clear within this life she could not stay

The phone was ringing when she went away
