The Missed Call

My phone rang but I didn’t answer it

we were celebrating

Was it you – hurting?

I didn’t want to be rude

despite the persistent ringing I stayed still

made no move to pick up the jangling device


I wasn’t expecting a call

I wasn’t expecting the interruption

I wasn’t expecting the silence, the hurt, the pain
