A poem about the phone call I've waited my whole life to receive, but never got.

Unavailable

Ring-ring...

Ring-ring... Ring-ring...

Ring-ring... Ring-ring... Ring-ring...

Hi,

Hi, This is your daughter...

I'm so sorry, But I can't come to the phone right now

I'm busy drowning in an ocean, Of all the words you never said. Like:

I'm busy drowning in an ocean, Of all the words you never said, Like: "I love you." or

I'm busy drowning in an ocean, Of all the words you never said, Like: "I love you." or "I'm proud of you."

I seem to be going through a tunnel, Filled with every moment you missed. Such as:

I seem to be going through a tunnel, Filled with every moment you missed. Such as: Every track meet,

I seem to be going through a tunnel, Filled with every moment you missed. Such as: Every track meet, My graduation,

I seem to be going through a tunnel, Filled with every moment you missed. Such as: Every track meet, My graduation, And my wedding.

I'm occupying myself, trying wrapping my head around the concept, that I was too much for you to hold.

It's no simple task getting a handle on the facts, Including, But not limited to the fact, That you couldn't be bothered to stay.

Not to mention the fact, That it's been twenty-one years, And you're only just calling me now...

So as you can see, I'm far too preoccupied to pick up the phone.

I don't think I have it in me, to hear whatever it is you have to say.

The person you're trying to reach, Is unavailable,

But please feel free to leave a message, I'll get back to you as soon as I'm ready...
