The voice in my head

Dear You

The voice in my head tells me we’re fine

It says that you just need time

It calculates the right amount of space

But that I should stick around incase

He may need you

Go chill that bottle of wine

It prods me to check on my phone

No message

One more time go on…

No message

But you haven’t looked in a while

You’re right

It’s only been 2 minutes

Oh God why

It deluges a hundred reasons not to call

And of course why shouldn’t I believe it after all

Then the voice disappears so I dial

And it’s your voice at the other end

hello…oh…it’s you…hi
