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?

I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS FROM THE START

 

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.
