that time is gone

she loved him every day

she says crying on the phone

& me?

I’m in listening mode

not gonna argue the toss today

I loved him cared for him

& now he & me are over

I gotta find somewhere else to stay

like here would be possible…

I’m listening not talking

holding my hand

right there over my mouth

like I did the times before

she called in to complain

about his lazy ass his drinking

his lack of work doing anything

& if time runs true to form

she’ll call again a day or two

tell me all about

we made it up back again

hows life with you?

& I keep quiet hanging on

letting her run on

the time for telling truth to her?

that time is gone
