169 rejected calls after
Ridicule settled as dew upon me
My field of life wet with shame
A mockingbird flew over my head
A black cat gazed ominously at me
It’s going to be a dark moody day
To be spent waiting for you to call.
I got angry, I got sad.
I told myself
I’d get another lover
I found myself doing the hopeless
Waiting for you to call.
My soul cries out to the winds
Call me, say anything
Flowers, text or an emoji
Anything to make me feel loved
Alas, It’s another day
Spent painfully waiting for you to call.
You were my obsession
My out of body experience
But to you, I was a tool
Meant only to satisfy your lusts
Even at that,
I am still waiting for your call
I decided to start afresh
Not to dwell on you anymore
I went to sleep
I had a dream
I saw you calling.
So I woke up
Sat by my phone
Dawn to dusk in tears
Frustrated and feeling like a fool
Miserable and disappointed
That I waited again for you to call.
Some say I am mad
Others said I am delusional
Maybe I am all they said I am
But tell me what I did wrong
Then will I stop
WAITING FOR YOU TO CALL.

Nice poem my Bishop!
It’s a trip down memory lane.
Though not many had even land line in our time. Talking about the 80s.
Love is a beautiful thing but no matter what, life goes on. One has to move on and learn to love again.

True talk ma, one has to move on. Concentrating on what is lost can make one miss what is available.

Love carries misery when you are with the wrong person and you are giving and not getting it back. Set yourself free choose to be happy and move on. With the right person love is beautiful and joyfuj.

It’s a mystery to discover that what seems to be L-O-V-E at times is not really😆😆. This is so for many reasons. ….But God’s love never hurts. Hallelujah. Good post Pastor.
