Phone Call

You know it’s coming

that it is unavoidable.

You want to run

To not answer

because then reality

might be held at bay.

But on that first ring

you know.

The long wait is over

and the pain will begin

shredding your heart

your soul.

With shaking hands

you slowly reach out

so the world you know

can end.
