You Called

You Called

You called my phone,

And I got your text,

I never returned or replied,

There would always be a next,

Time.

 

A next time to converse,

A next time to meet,

A next time to hang out,

A next time to complete,

Our discussions.

 

You asked could you see me,

Spend some time at my house,

Sun ourselves in the park,

Or just chill,

I was busy.

 

A next time to converse,

A next time to meet,

A next time to hang out,

A next time to complete,

Our discussions.

 

You never called me,

You never text,

Your never reached out,

And there will be no next,

Time.

 

No next time to converse,

No next time to meet,

No next time to hang out,

No next time,

Forever incomplete.

 

I long for the day,

For my phone to ring,

Flash up with your number,

Hear your voice sing,

Next Time,

Next Time,

Next Time.
