Disconnecting from You through a Dial-Tone

Disconnecting from You through a Dial-Tone

A Poem by TTBoy28

It hurt me to see you calling

Knowing I really couldn’t be there

You can’t see me falling

From the floor into my chair


I don’t want to make this a memory

I don’t want relive this dream

I want to keep my smile shimmering

Instead of ripping at the seam


How many “Sorrys” can I hear?

How many “I Love Yous” can I take?

How long must I live in fear

Before I ask myself if I’m awake?


Just to hear your voice

Every part of me wants to shiver

But now, I know I have a choice

To either stand up or deliver


I accepted you being cruel

Knocking me down without touching me

Even the telephone plays the fool

With a false sense of security


If I choose to pick up

What’s the messing that I’m sending

Would I be pressing my luck

When it’s my soul I’m defending?


See this as a disconnect

Though my bill is paid in full

Maybe you’ll feel the new affect

Something new you can rule


The message should be clear

Even if you find me another way

In time, I’ll be able to cheer

Because of the dial-tone you get everyday
