Patience by the Phone- #Poem #Poetry

I sit by the phone again

Tears well in my eyes

You said you’d call

Told me I was number one

All I hear is the sounds of silence

Guess the promise easily given

Simple to betray

As long as your needs satisfied

Whether by me

Or in another bed

So I’ll cry alone again

For the day

You think to darken my door

When the others aren’t there

And I’m the only one picking up tonight

Guess I’m the fool then

As I wait still

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
