Poetry Friday – Sorry For Not Answering The Phone

Sorry For Not Answering The Phone

Our lives ring out,

Like a metronome of memories

shared

stored

placed in perfect little picture frames,

On shelves

around the borders of my heart,

Children in the streets,

That we mold between bed sheets,

Thier change jingle-jangles in the

sweet

summer

heat,

Pull me close again

because I miss that taste

that tender touch,

Where would I be?

Who would I become?

Had you not thrown your life,

Against mine,

Had we not made this tornadic,

Terrible nightmare,

A little more bearable,

Like keys,

Jingle-jangling against our bedside table.

 

I like writing Ekphrastic Poetry. For those that don’t know what that means, it’s where your inspiration is drawn from something like a song or a dance routine or a movie. It’s a poet ‘reflecting’ on something like a painting or statue through their own writing.
This poem, one of my favorites, was inspired by a song created by the band, in love with a ghost, called Sorry For Not Answering The Phone, I’m Too Busy Trying To Fly Away. It’s a beautiful, simple song that I constantly listen to in my Writing Music playlist and I hope that someone can take just as much love away from it as I do.
So, I hope you enjoy and are looking forward to next weeks poem!

Cheers,
C
