Poem: Unreachable – 11/06/20 #Fiction

Intermittent beeps,
one through three,
Why can’t I reach you?
It’s devastating me.
Engaged signals
as my frantic calls go on and on,
I need you,
I want you,
can’t you consider what I want?
I resort to messaging,
walls of text,
forever to be unread?
Can you forgive me
for what I’ve done?
Not everything is as it seems,
the thread in our
tight line has unravelled,
will you answer me, please?
My desperation grows
the longer you won’t attend,
I’m raging,
vicious thoughts run through my head.
Everything you think
and thought I have done
is all hogwash,
it’s nonsense,
borne of gossip from a jealous throng,
can’t you consider other possible circumstances?
I thought you loved me,
“eternally”, you did say,
now left unreachable,
my explanations ignored,
you’ll not hear what I have to say.
And the tragic facts
of this debacle
are that they only saw me with him,
at an unplanned meeting,
laughing at a silly joke of his.
I may have brushed his hand briefly,
a few too many times,
but darling, oh, my darling
know I need you,
please remain forever mine.
So, forgive me of my shortcomings,
my thoughtless, flirtatious behaviour that day,
I meant no harm,
I should have smiled,
and walked the other way.
