Business Phone

Phone calls.
God-forsaken,
mind-shattering,
phone calls…
ruining my day,
never allowing me any peace.
What did I do?
Where did I go wrong?
Who did I cross?
Why me?
If only I had known,
if only someone had told me,
I would have done things differently,
I would have turned down that promotion,
that job,
that damnable position.
Those phone calls…
those uncaring,
selfless,
demanding,
all consuming,
phone calls.
Oh God…it's ringing again.

Doesn't it seem like the phone has it in for us some days?   Very creative, clever work.

~I like how you just sort of "Threw this up",..so to speak.  Great expression. Felt your emotions "Ringing" through every word. *Peace.
