The Cell Phone

by Independence Forever   Oct 8, 2007


An obituary, the girl's boyfriend dies
staring in disbelief, unshrinking cries

standing on the bridge, ready to take a jump
thinking of her lost love, he's dead the chump

memories flash through her mind of happy times
the dates they went on, their songs and rhymes

after a moment her cell phone starts ringing
she tries to discard it, the ring tone's singing

after a moment the ringing stops on it's own
then returns the loud song, it's caller unknown

after a few times more she sets the phone down
they will be reunited in death there'll be no frown

suddenly her decision has been made
nothing for her here, no one had stayed

with a loud splat she dies on the hard ground
her boyfriend didn't die, his call was the sound

    Okay.
    I frigging loved this.
    The whole piece has so much power and intensity throughout.
    Wording and rhyme scheme are wonderfully done, and the ending blew me away...it has such power that it hits the reader like a slap in the face..I love this.
    There is nothing I would change.
    Perfect.
