All I wanted tonight was to call you up and talk. To ask about your day and tell you about mine. I wanted to tell you that doing crossword puzzles isn’t any fun without you. I wanted you to say you miss me and let me say that I miss you. I wanted us to commiserate on the relative suckiness of our days. Instead, you shut me down. We were on the phone for less than thirty seconds. Twenty-eight to be exact. Twenty-eight seconds from hello to goodbye. And I don’t think you even heard the longing in my voice for the conversation to go on. I heard the frustration with the day in yours. And I just wanted to talk. But you shut me out. And now? I’m sitting on my couch, trying not to cry. And now, tonight is way worse than it was earlier. I reached out. And you walked away.

About texancountess

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
