Communication Breakdown

Originally posted on Grandmother Musings:

I wanted to call you

But I did not have a dime

I needed to talk to you

But I did not have the time.


How do we get it together?

Miscommunication has kept us apart

What level of connection do we need?



Trapped by a string of gutless  proposals

The phone does not show your face.

I can only hear voice inflections

I need to travel to your place.


Phone calls, texting, and twitter

They are a sad replacement for the whole you

Technology has fooled me

Into believing you understand what I do.

What good is living life if you don't share all the experiences, mistakes, and knowledge you have gained? I am a grandmother, a Jr. High Teacher for 15 years, a wife of 31 years, a mother of two grown children, and I want to share my experiences.
