The Phone Call

I would have called

yesterday, but wasn’t sure

the phone was charged

enough for me to finish

my thoughts, so I did not,

but plugged it in anyway,

thinking maybe in an hour,

or so, I will call, I will make

that speech I’ve been planning,

say the things I wanted to say

all these years, but the hour

passed, and by then I was

somewhere else, pondering

the complications, the knotted

nature of love, wondering

what it is that binds us and

what it is that pulls us apart.
