Love & All that Drama

"hand in hand"

I hate the cell phone when I’ve fought with you,
Every few seconds it reminds me of you.
Torturing me with messages that you should’ve sent
To say you’re sorry, and hadn’t really meant.

Instead, it accuses me with a stare of silence,
Piling up my guilt, and pleading a case of innocence.
And, when it does ring, I rush to answer the call
But, instead of you, I hear the auto-dialer’s bawl.

How I wish that both you and the cell phone
Would wisen up and realize that I actually like your drone.
Sometimes, I might pretend to be bored with it all,
And, sometimes both of you really drive me up the wall!

But, when that does happen, can you not be quiet and loving,
Can’t you smile and try a hug, instead of justifying all the arguing?
If we can cut out the drama, and, listen better to Love’s demand,
Life would be peaceful, and, we can walk along, hand in hand.

    Nice one! And I can identify with it so much right now…


  7. Drama is one of the (very few) unpleasant things to deal with in relationships. But sometimes, you gotta admit, it does add spice. Just don’t let it get in the way of the relationship itself.


  8. Funny how the “drama” can sometimes show us the things we really want or need in a relationship besides the things we don’t like. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the poem…thank you for sharing.


  9. Cut the drama. Amen! Good for you, Amrita. If only … but at least you said it and you sait it well. Good job.

    Hope you are enjoying Rally.

    Blessings for 2011.

    Amazing … great writing ..

    On a lighter note the cellphone guy may be singing “Nookie” by Limp Bizkit “She Put My Tender Heart in a Blender, but Still I Surrendered …” πŸ™‚

    Life ..Life …
