    Waiting by the Phone

    I sit staring at the phone hoping and praying it will ring
    I’m just waiting here at home can’t concentrate on a thing
    Is that a ring that I hear or my imagination?
    Not sure, it wasn’t clear I’m full of anticipation
    So nervous can’t sit still I really wish he’d call
    I’m positive he will or maybe not at all
    My hands are shaking my feet are tapping
    My bodies quaking don’t know what’s happening
    My temperature is rising my emotions are soaring
    And I’m realizing this waiting is boring
    To call he did promise after he got off work
    His call I don’t want to miss then again, he may be a jerk
    To keep a woman waiting is not so very nice
    So if we start dating I won’t go do it twice
    I am getting oh, so angry my face is turning red
    Surely I can see he’s messing with my head
    Phone rings after a stone age I slowly begin to rise
    Answering the phone in my rage
    I say “Hi baby, what a surprise!"

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
