Several days alone

he could hear the walls creak

his pulse nearly drove him insane

try living without it

You don’t know what you have

’til it’s gone.

“It’s over!”

she slammed the door hard,

on her way to someone else

she had in mind.

His desire walked out

with her, holding her hand.

leaving him thoughtless, speechless, heartless.

crying ’til he couldn’t cry any longer.

Phone ringing, ringing, ringing,

followed by his answer.

It was her.

Laying it on the table,

he heard her

calling his name, his name, his name…

until looking to the ceiling

he hung up.
