Speak To Me, My Love

The times I've called on the telephone
Only to be told that, you're not at home.
I wonder why I bother at all
when you are never there
to take my call.

I just want to hear your voice.
Hear you speak the words
that I've heard from others.
I don't want them to be true,
but I will listen to only you

Speak to me, my love. speak to me
Listen to my heart beat
Listen to this lonely soul
From the night of the whirlwind
Listen to my invitation calling you

    Beautiful and sad, just thinking of someone calling and not having the calls answered or returned is very sad indeed. It tears at the heart-strings and I think many of us have been there at one time or other. Another wonderful poem, really beautiful.

    This romantic, soulful poem shares that universal longing for the pingpong ball of true love to bounce back, even if the answer in 'no'. A beautiful corroborative effort from three extra lovable souls. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    Wistful, poignant and bittersweet. Three souls in tune indeed. Ten from me.

    Warmest regards,
