Honey please come home
I feel like I am having an affair
With the phone

When you are on the other end
I try to pretend
The voice in my ear
Is you standing near
So I kiss it
And lick it
And when it doesn't kiss back
I drop-kick it
I get so frustrated
At times that I cry
Why can you not be here?
Why, why, why, why?!
I love you so much
But I still feel alone
When all I can do
Is kiss you through the phone

Even though I feel all these things
I will pray to hear your voice
The next time it rings

(personal PS: Hurry home to me Kari!!!)

loving, yet also funny, do we have to report you to the phone company? "drop-kicking" a phone and such?

I like the way you write. I bet the plastic doesn't taste as nice as a real kiss though.

Boy can I relate to this one, even though I can't say I have kissed, or licked the phone,I can say that I've wished I could just crawl through the receiver to reach in and hug my distant husband and friends.
