at the other end

i have to be alone
she said
he turned to go
he didn’t though
he only stared ahead
don’t hesitate to call
he said
if you should be in need
of someone to squash spiders
or stomp on centipedes
don’t stop your hand
if you should reach
to phone to find a friend
i’ll be always waiting
at the other end

  1. Aww, this is a bit sad. It seems that love is so often one-sided. I always seem to be on one side or the other. Always either the hurt or the hurter. Both are awful. It must feel nice to meet someone halfway. It evidently happens sometimes though, so i live in hope.
    Ending the comment on a positive note, i love how you can squeeze so much emotion into such a tiny thing as a rhyme.
