One sided phone call

We have lost contact
It concerns me we are apart
I want to see you

State the time and place
The community centre?
I still care for you

Please listen to me
Just for a coffee and a chat
In fact I love you

No purpose is served?
Its decades since the break up
How can you say that?

Collaborate please
You’re so uncompromising
So it’s goodbye is it?

  1. You capture those ambivalent goodbyes so well...I think it's an unsure..uncertain way to hang up...

  2. Best to walk away from this one, I think.

  3. Nice use of the words, the conversation works very well, I like the title, and the picture completes the work.

    Good job. Randy

  4. Well wordled! I enjoy your relationship poems. Great photo choice.

  5. Brilliant wordling. Leaves me wanting the rest of the story!

  6. There's something about his tone.

  7. "Please listen to me
    Just for a coffee and a chat
    In fact I love you"

    I love this stanza. Beautiful.

  8. ah ... what a sad phone call, but sometimes it's just as well to leave things as they are ... lovely how you wordled this!

  9. When the good-bye comes, it is difficult to accept, much less comprehend. I know. I've been there.

  10. Had a chuckle over this, clearly somebody doesn't get the message "it's over!!"
