Ring Ring


If only she had answered the phone

he wouldn’t be dead right now.

She wouldn’t be identifying his body

by his lifeless eyes and pasty skin.

He should be alive, damnit!


She was busy,

that’s why she couldn't answer

because she was busy.

But is that a good enough excuse?

She nods once,

And watched as his once-animated eyes

get covered by a sheet.


Why couldn’t she answer the damn phone?

If only she had answered.
