I should have remembered
Love doesn’t last forever
I pick up my phone
Dial your number
Hoping you aren’t
In a deep slumber
It rang once
Then I heard a Hello
Your voice sounded so sad
So low
I immediately asked what was wrong
Your hesitation took too long
You sighed
At that moment
A part of me died
A whisper
I love you
Escaped my lips
And tears began to fall
This really was the end
After all
You whispered my name
I had a spark of
That this broken love
Could be saved
And our hearts would be sewn
But the last thing I heard
Was the dial

My heart was broken. I was looking at my ex-boyfriend during study hall and was inspired to write this poem.
