    Yeah, another one. I've just finished it so its still the first version, and its a new style to normal so please be nice ^_^
    Its about a phonecall with my best friend.

    I know you're watching.
    Forever you waited
    for this.
    For me to run and miss and
    now I'm tainted.
    By my mistakes.
    And you know and I know and we can't
    get out.
    The beat
    of my pulse,
    never steady and I know
    you hear it.
    You listen.
    We sit down in unison
    in separate houses.
    You on the bed,
    me on the floor.
    And you ask me why, but I can't,
    and you ask again, and I'm crying,
    and I can't hear,
    and you shout:
    And I stop.
    And you ask me why, and I am silent.
    You shout so loud,
    I hold the phone away, because
    I can't hear like you hear.
    I can't stand to listen.
    Did I not think of you? You shout.
    Why didn't I just ask
    for help?
    I did. I whisper, but you don't notice.
    You're still shouting.
    And you ask me why,
    And I am silent, because I can't.
    And I'm sorry.
    You hang up.

    I decided by writing a poem on it at least some good could come of what happened. It was all pretty bleak, but now that its in the past, at least I have this to show for it I guess. In my strange illogical kind of way, thats a comfort.

    And it means a lot that its appreciated.
