Late night phone calls

Late night phone calls - another thing on my list of things I like!

Plastic hot against my ear.
Imagining that you are near.
Conversations whispered,
Though there is no one
To hear.
Late night phone calls-
The hours slip past.
Your voice grows husky
In a darkness so vast.
Lying in my bed-
The words you have said.
Late nights alone,
I hold your words tight.
The words you spoke
That kept me awake
all those nights.
Lying in the dark,
I wait for the call
To hear you tell me
That you did mean it all.


  1. That is very sad and beautiful at the same time.xx

  2. I remember having those feelings... Beautifully written!

  3. This is bittersweet.
    A touching reminder the "good times,"
    when every word was tinged in perfection and you feel that all is right with the world.

    So simple and sweet,
    is conversation with those we love.


  4. I love this. You have captured the feeling, the experience beautifully! Thanks for the visit, and comment on my blog, which led me here.
