I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.
I called you today but got no answer.
Thinking you thought: she’ll hang up, she’ll just go away.
I’m much too busy and don’t have much to say.
I wanted you to know I thought about you, I just wanted to chat.
You know, just chew the fat.
Perhaps it’s just me and the way I think.
Sometimes I think I’m only second best and sometimes I wonder why I can’t get it off of my chest.
But don’t think I don’t know when I’m being put off ‘cuz I have sense’s, and they know, they don’t scoff.
So giving you the benefit of the doubt I say to myself: maybe she’s had a bad day, maybe there’s an emergency, or maybe someone's come to stay.
So, I did hang up and I did go away.
Instead of leaving a message I hope your sense’s know my intentions are loving, my words are true, it’s just life after all and “I miss you.”
