The Telephone Is Such A Lonely Place - Poem by Colin Coplin

Nothing to say
So as she talks I sketch a picture of her face
The telephone is such a lonely place
She’s far away from me today

Her every sound
Lingers in my thirsting ears
Hungrily tasting every word she speaks
She’s far away from me today

I think constantly, of the time
You’ll be mine
Wrapped in each other arms
Sharing love, that's mixed as one

Nothing to say
So as she talks I sketch a picture of her face
The telephone is such a lonely place
She’s far away from me today

Like a whale on the deep blue sea
I hear your call, I hear your call
The mists of distance, mean nothing to me
I hear your call, I hear your call

Break

Momentarily
All my senses aroused greedily
Her simple “I love you” pulls me through the phone
A moment later, I’m all alone
She’s far away from me today
Far away from me today
She’s far away from me today
