You Rang? - Poem by Leria Hawkins

You Rang?
Date: July 5,2012

I see that you called...
Again, you have called
Perhaps in some sad belief
That you cannot be denied

I've heard it said
'You get what you give in this life'
And I believe it to be true
Perhaps…you should too!

I see that you called...
Sporting the same old howl
With conceit that does not interest me
You are brass, and nerve, and pride

Your ego grates my peace of mind
Like nails against a chalkboard
It's the incessant squall of vanity
That wears thin my patience

I see that you called...
But fall silent when looked upon
Like a frightened child, you hide your face in shadows
For fear of being seen

There's no need to pass this way again
There's no shoulder on which to rest
No ear to listen
And there is no heart to bruise or break

I see that you called...
With any luck, may it be your last
As it will go unanswered
It will be ignored…
