Meditations of a fool, melancholy sighs-
Inane chatter to himself, requiring no replies.
Introspective frame of mind, a bit late, if you please
As he sits alone tonight, and spouts soliloquies.

Wonder why the dreams long past, never did transpire?
And only ashes now remain to show there was a fire?
A longing now to hear a voice, from somewhere in the past
His hand does reach to grip the phone, then hesitates at last..

Should I call, or should I not? and with disaster flirt?
Add insult to old injury? and agony to hurt?
No I think Iíll let it be- and let old heartaches lie.
Pretend it never happened, and watch the time go by.

Would she care? or would she want..to hear my voice again?
And would the love spring up anew, and  resurrect within?
Or would the silence on the line, smash my final hopeĒ
And leave me as a man gone blind, to in the darkness grope?

I do not now, nor ever shall...know those answers, friend.
But I shall ever long to know, on that you may depend.
Two sad people far apart, forlorn and all alone-
Each desiring in their heart to dial the telephone.

Another great one Gunslinger.  But you will never know unless you pick up that phone.

Another good one dear, your poems always have a meaning, and to give you a little advice- CALL HER!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Just pick up the phone and call her(that is, if this poem is true) Your pride could be hurt for a day, or it could be a phone call you'd remember forever. If this isn't real, don't call
I enjoyed this poem!

Beautiful poetry.  Fantastic imagery.  Sad, but, if true, it is always difficult to know when to follow the fools head or the fool- hardy heart.
