    that was unexpected.
    You know, the phone
    rings and I, innocently of course
    pick it up intending to
    say nothing more than a short
    hello and turn the caller
    on their way.

    But instead, I am
    caught off guard, much to my
    or rather, my disgust,
    by your deep, rich,
    aggravating voice.
    "Good afternoon, dearest."

    And I swear to God
    shards of ice made their way
    through my bloodstream
    one by one
    and my hand began to shake
    and my forehead to sweat
    and I answered,
    "Hello to you."

    With the next words, I could hear
    the smile in your voice.
    You inquired as to with what
    (whom, you MEANT)
    I was spending my time
    and how my life is treating me
    and I answer as nonchalantly as possible.
    No answer seems to sate you
    just as I thought
    because you're searching
    for something specific
    and you won't stop
    until you achieve it.

    I feel pathetic
    because this fucking phone call
    has me so up in arms
    I could wrap my arms around my legs and cry
    But instead, I do what I do best
    and I sound as cheerful and interested as I can
    in the goings-on of your New Life Without Me.

    I tease you about lies that you continue to tell
    and pretend to let you get away with them
    And I giggle when you tell me more
    as though I am stupid enough to believe.
    And I lie when you ask me if I'm ok
    because there's no way in fuck
    you deserve to know the truth to that one.
    I let the ruby red drip from my lips
    and I can hear your arousal through the phone
    through your voice
    because, to you,
    this information
    is carnal.

    My lips are so close to yours
    but never quite meet you in the middle
    and I know I am disappointing you.
    I know you well.

    I know this dance.

    But baby,
    this time,
    the let down is on purpose..
    and, as for the other times:
    Fuck you.
    These lips have found another suitor.

    MY autonomy will drive me to the end.

    Well, this one was a bit different. Easy to follow and enjoyable to read.

    I felt captured by it, almost as if I were hearing a joke and waiting for the puchline (I mean that in a good way).

    I think the piece draws the reader in and encourages them to keep reading.

    I liked the line "I could wrap my arms around my legs and cry" and I think the last line was perfect - a good finish.

    I haven't really read anything like this on here before, and it made a nice change.

    I thought it was strange that you classed it as lyrics, as I couldn't imagine someone singing this!

    Anyway, thumps up! Shall I put it down as a favourite...?? You know what? I think I will!
