It needs a title, any suggestions?


I know that right now you are sitting by your phone
And I know you’re waiting for my call
And you’re waiting for me to let you down just one last time
You just need this one last failed attempt
To reassure you that you don’t need me

My heart is calling to you
Can you hear it scream?
More then being hurt, I’m afraid of hurting you
So I’ll keep hanging up before it rings
Crying a tear for each button pushed in vain

  Is this bout me... I hope not or I'll be sad. Cheer up babs I love you. I liked this poem though, it spoke more than what was written, and that's what I really look for. emotion bleeds from the capalaries of the piece and...oh, yeah...I love you

  It was nice in the way that I'm sure it released your emotional build up, but then again it doesn't really stick out of the crowd much, I'm not saying it's bad, it's just it's a certain ammount of something a little bit deeper of yourself, something that connects the deepest part of you and just slams it out there for the rest of us to see. Uh something that says "Hey, I feel this way, It's my emotions, I want you to see them"... There are other deep seeded emotions and things that people have typically a difficulty expressing, I'm one of those people who can't express it all, so I know. But I think you have something in there that you forgot to say or neglected to say, something that would have completely changed the entire piece into something so more you, right now it seems like a rough draft that most teenagers write. but keep it up, you'll do fine.

(I'm sure that I mispelled something, used a run on sentence, forgot to seperate into paragraphs or something along those lines.. I'm aware of that, but it's how it came out, I'll take time to edit my comments when people actually read them)

You'll do fine no matter what you do.

  I really liked this. It's hard to explain, but I saw it different ways from when I read it the first & second time. It came out as 2 different perspectives & as one perspective - I dont know, or can't find the words to explain, but the way this was set up was very nicely done and you expressed it very well...
As for a title... it's a song, but fitting here:
Telephone Line
Nice write

  How about... 37 Missed Calls. Inspired by my answering machine, haha.

I can kind of relate to this poem because I once waited around for someone ( a boy.. grrr) to call only to tell me abso-friggin-lutely nothing of importance. "I'm hanging out with my friends tonight." THANKS. I just wasted my damn time.. Guys can be frustrating, but you gotta love em. Way to put a crappy situation into great words.

End transmission,

  The only thing I can say here is that your beautiful words need a home ( title) how about accepting the silence? Ant way good write, just name your deeply moving words
