Communication Breakdown

I wanted to call you

But I did not have a dime

I needed to talk to you

But I did not have the time.


How do we get it together?

Miscommunication has kept us apart

What level of connection do we need?



Trapped by a string of gutless  proposals

The phone does not show your face.

I can only hear voice inflections

I need to travel to your place.


Phone calls, texting, and twitter

They are a sad replacement for the whole you

Technology has fooled me

Into believing you understand what I do.

  2. So true…nothing replaces a one to one visit…Diane

  3. Very spare and well written. This sounds painful and real. Keep writing and posting!
