Voicemail

The caller is not available .... Please record your message after the tone....





Close the door

Sit close to the phone

So no one else can listen to my tone


I hope you don’t

Mind hearing my voice

E-mail and texting were never a choice


Write a letter

I might have done

But waiting for post is never much fun




I wanted to say, all this face to face

Never got the courage as my pulse does race

Can’t bear to think what your eyes will show

Will they show surprise, or panic, no!


For so long

We’ve been friends

Been together through times and trends


You confide in me

About the loves you’ve had

It breaks my heart when they treat you so bad


You said you were glad

You’ve got me to talk

Share cups of coffee or go for a walk


I wanted to say, all this face to face

Never got the courage as my pulse does race

Can’t bear to think what your eyes will show

Will there be shock, disappointment, no!



I’ll come to the point

The machine might stop

My grip’s too tight, my heart does hop


In love with you

I’ve always been

A future for us I’ve always seen


You fill my life

My dreams and my thoughts

A feeling that I have always fought


I wanted to say, all this face to face

Never got the courage as my pulse does race

Can’t bear to think what your eyes will show

Will it be love, please will they glow?


Ring me now

If you too feel the same

Stop me burning in this solitary flame


But if this is not

What you want

Break up this friendship, we certainly can’t


I promise you

Let’s make a deal

Don’t worry now; I know how your kind heart feels



I wanted to say, all this face to face

Never got the courage as my pulse does race

I don’t mind if your eyes do show

Love for a friend, please don't think I'm a foe



Pick up the phone

Oh let me hear your voice

Or Press delete

Don’t agonise over choice.


I love you, always, either way.

      So magnificently said. The words make my heart race. Quick, I need a doctor! How sweet, how adorable...how endearing. The picture accompanying your poetry is so emotive and perfectly chosen. This alone would make any woman love you. And, then, that video, it made me cry. So beautiful...

      Thanks, Peter. Romance will always out ... as someone once said :

      'at the gateway of my heart,

      I wrote no thoroughfare

      But love came piercing through,

      and said 'I come everywhere'

      Beautiful poem and the song is a perfect match. You can feel this emotion so strongly it makes you hope the person on the other end appreciated the lovely words and thoughts as much as the readers did.

      Thanks Justsilvie- glad you enjoyed the emotions in the poem. I write from my heart rather than my head and hope it shows... I would hope there was a happy ending... but there are only millimeteres between the replay and the delete buttons!

      Love this verse, Docmo.

      "Ring me now

      If you too feel the same

      Stop me burning in this solitary flame" That idea of one candle burning really emphasizes the idea of loneliness without a loved one. Loved this! VUMS!

      My goodness this is wonderful. You have perfectly captured that wonderfully horrible feeling of loving someone and wanting to tell them yet not having the strength to do it face to face...

      I have a friend that I love like a brother and for a while I used to give him a letter with his birthday gifts that said all the sappy things I never said to him in person (like I can with my girl friends). Its been a while since I've done that. Maybe I will write him one more.

      Beautiful poem. Thank u for sharing.

      I enjoyed this poem very much. I'm not good at poetry, but I envy people like you who can write it.

      I know the feeling you conveyed in this poem. I love Lionel Ritchey, too.

      I voted this UP....

      I don't know what to say after reading your words. I am trying to think of something clever. Your words are poeerful and left me with an "Oh my god" feeling. I like fow you formatted this too. You have a gift Docmo indeed!
