Call Me

by Shani Cruz


In brightest nightfall
I tried to reach you
Long days after
uneasy glances
voicemail
unspoken pleas
You told me
we should 
get together
as my eyes
studied your
movement
Your lips
seized my
skin like
raindrops
OK
I thought 
as I moved
closer
cautiously
replying
we'll see
Now 
realizing
your intent
Apparent
in sunlight
I see your
winks and 
smiles 
empty
while 
laying
sideways
Lonely
lady
lost
anticipating
the impossible
