“i keep calling you.
you’re getting so fed up with me,
refusing to even pick up anymore.
but i’m not looking for a conversation.
all i want to hear is
the familiarity and love before the
beep takes it away.
just your voice can bring me both joy
and pain so intense i can’t breathe.
i miss you.
and hearing you, even if it's
just a recording,
eases the tsunami of harsh longing. ”
