One Last Phone Call

Article is by C.J Npowa

Hey it’s me,

Can we talk? I’ve been thinking…
It’s not that I don’t want to f**k
It’s just that I want so much more
You feel me.

I want to be able to hold you to
The promises you made to me back when

I want to be able to kiss the bitterness that crept in goodbye

I want to be able to laugh
Away all the pain that’s turned into our only constant

I want to be able to undress
All the lies that have become our truth

I want to be able to unveil
my nakedness, my soul like a virgin bride

I want to be able to taste
peace, even if it’s far from exciting

I just want to be able to
So bad!

Despite all the trials and failures
I still see potential
That’s being wasted

Despite the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
I still tremble
At the memory of the upcoming storm

Can we stop f**king each other up and just f**k each other happily ever after?

Grrrrgrrr … Allo! Are you there?

I think I’ve lost all
Fucking network! What have I paid for all these years!?
