Missed Calls

It rang for 28 seconds.. My heart beat rang faster.. Pick up pick up pick up.. No answer..

I needed to exhale.. I’ve been holding my breath with every passing ring..

But you never called back..

The minutes turned into hours, and the hours faded into days. I stared at my phone more than an admirer on a first date..

But still, no blinking screens, no recognizable name..

Miss, Missing, Missed.. Fate did not put me through, it diverted me as it called for change.

I write about the things that goes in your head, but fail to be expressed verbally or find its way to paper.
