Called It

Don't leave me hanging.

Don’t leave me hanging.

I didn’t call you cus I got caught up.
You didn’t come around just as expected.
Dates rearrange & promises fall through.
It’s nothing new to someone & everything to a few.
It’s no fault of our own when we can’t come through it seems.

Call it a convenience whenever we’re in the mood.
Love lasts for now, tomorrow’s another question.
Don’t ask me for answers because they elude me just like you.
I’ve stopped caring, it was bound to happen eventually.
That ringing in your ear isn’t coming from me.
I’m not calling your name.

What we are is wasting away.
It’s about time one of us walked away.
Give it up & give in.
Or go on pretending everything’s the same.
The chase is tiring.
Give it up & give in.
Or go on & quit back peddling.

Give it up or go on.
But don’t leave me hanging.
Hang up your dreams & try your call again.
It’s no longer your call, a decision’s been made.
I had a moment of silence for what never was.
Give it up & go on, as though yesterday was just a fever dream.

    • What?? I stopped expecting things & I made other plans. At the risk of sounding like a non-committing dog, I’ll say that I always have other things I could be doing, its just that I’d rather spend my time with that special someone. Like I said, “It’s no fault of our own when we can’t come through.” Accountability seems to be lacking, I’ve played my part too, so there should be no excuses or blame. I’m just making it official by saying that I won’t be calling her name.
      Just another sobering thought after waking up late at night.
