“Ring” “Ring”

“Ring” “Ring”

“Ring” “Ring”
Goes the telephone,
“Ring” “Ring”
But no one’s home,

I continue to call,
Still no reaction,
“Ring” “Ring”
With no pick up action,

“Ring” “Ring”
Still no reply,
A constant “Ring”
And I don’t know why,

Again I Try,
Again no luck,
“Ring” “Ring”
Frustration has struck,

I will just be quick,
It will not take long,
“Ring” “Ring”
On the line you belong,

Why do you elude me,
I need guiding,
“Ring” “Ring”
And you’re still hiding,

Just Answer,
This is enough,
The noise of the “Ring”
Is getting tough,

Now I’m worried,
This is not fair,
“Ring” “Ring”
At the phone I stare,

No “Ring” “Ring”
The line is dead,
No more “Ring”
With nothing said,

With connection lost,
Will I ever find,
The conversation I need,
With my own mind.

    Very nice, thought-provoking. Maybe if you stop making the calls, then the other you will pick up the phone to get through?

    Very nice work here, a fine manipulation rhythm with the real world sound of the phone ringing…endlessly.
