Answer me, please
What did I do?
For this isn’t like what I know of you
I admit I texted you to take a hike
In words more abusive than you’d like
But confused, what did this long silence mean?
That you’d changed your mind,
Moved on, left me behind?
Then you ought to have said
Not left me with this ache in my heart, in my head
I heard the news, can’t say that I didn’t
A multi-car motorway accident
I searched but no word of you
And the phone…
No answer, no ring
That was perplexing
And that’s when I texted you
You insult me, you toad, I’ll live without you
For weeks, rather I’d die than to endure the pain
Yet… Oh My God…
The red dawning came
With impatience, I had prematurely judged you
OMG I had maligned you
I pleaded, forgive me
For I’d lost my pride
Washed away in the tears I’d cried
“We’d always be friends.”
I thought you had lied.
And you, as I’d asked, forgave me
I’ll take that as proof
No need to say that you love me most ardently.
My impatience, my prejudice, my pride
Because in that accident your phone had died
