You were the one who called me
I answered on the first ring
I had been expecting you
Sitting by the phone like a lost puppy
If I had a tail, I definitely would have wagged it.
We always skip the pleasantries
No need for those when we have so much to discuss
I assure you I’ll be home before the end of summer
You say that’s fine, but your voice sounds funny
Like you have something on your mind
I want to ask what’s wrong
But you say you have to go.
Now we’ve finished our conversation
There is a pause
I’m shy so I wait for you to say it first
But all I’m left hearing is the dial tone
No ‘I love you’?
