The Silence on the Other End

Rage Poetry

Sorry… I haven't had a free minute all day

Try not to choke on your own bullshit.

Once upon a happier time
weren't you far above 
such transparent platitudes?

Nobody's stupid here.
Barring rare emergencies
Or maybe travel
How often is life ever 
actually too crazy 
for a five second tap of the thumbs?
Or a two-second 
“Dictate -> Send?”

Thinking of you, Lover
OMG crazy busy… miss you
Baby, I so look forward to chatting later

See, when someone is a priority 
Tme management: irrelevant 
Choices: unconscious
Effort: effortless
Love does not feel connection as burden
Love craves that communion

Don't you remember how that feels?

So come on - cut the crap
own your ugly truth: 
your other is not a priority anymore

Invested people 
try a little harder
find time, make choices and efforts
squelch the insidious onset
of burden 

They connect, connect, and reconnect
Most especially 
when life tries to get in the way
