You Or I?

You call me in the nights,
Knowing that I fear darkness
Ad loneliness;
My two loyal companions.

I answer your phone in deep slumber,
'I love you' is all I say,
All I have ever said,
All I can ever manage to say.
And you hang the phone i fall asleep.

'Insensitive', you may call me,
But i have grown numb,
It has been my life....

I wake up with
Streaks of dried tears on my face.
Unable to remember,
Who cried last night
You or I?
