 Another Time, Another Place



I rushed home

Kicking off my shoes

As I jammed the key to unlock the door


I rushed to the phone

Scanning the caller id

Looking for your number

Seeing if you called


I stood in silence...

For a moment

Taking a deep breath

Slowly walking up the stairs

Taking a moment to unravel my tie

Unbutton my shirt

While staring at the blank wall before me



Five long minutes I sat


Five minutes of staring at a blank wall

Soaking it all in

Feeling the nervousness

I felt yesterday when I called you


My hands shook as I began to dial your number I

remember placing the phone down a few times

Attempting to gather up the courage

To find something to say

Finding it hard to stand still

As your phone rang just one time




I left a message

An indescribable feeling of emptiness came over me

As if the rug I was walking on

Was suddenly pulled from under me



I find myself walking in the rain

Allowing it to beat down on my face

As cars speed by


Many nights like tonight

I stay in my room

With the lights off

The music low



Thinking of the highs and lows of life

About you

How depressed I am

Thinking of the pain

I feel with each step

Every breath

Every day of my life


Wishing that this would end

And things could go back

To the way they used to be

So that I could look myself in the mirror each morning

And smile
