Your Number

I can’t believe I remembered your number.

I spent so much time only hearing your voice in my dreams.

I squeezed my pillow tight, wishing it were you.

I can’t believe you picked up the phone.

For so long, I filled pages with the words I wanted to whisper in your ear.

I yearned for your touch and hoped that one day we would start our forever.

I was so surprised that, after days of getting a busy signal, the phone finally began to ring.

I can’t believe I remembered your number.

I finally got through and all you did was place me on hold.

I remembered your number, but I forgot all the reasons I deleted it from my phone.
