Why didn’t you call when I needed you the most?
Sitting on my bed waiting for your call.
2 p.m. turned to 5 p.m.
But you still hadn’t called.
I sunk into despair, wishing you were here
Why didn’t you call when I needed you the most?
I finally had to realize you weren’t going to call
And that’s what started my greatest fall.
Here I am stuck in this hole
Waiting for you to extend the pole
No one comes
5 p.m. turns to 8 p.m.
But still there is no pole
I sank into despair
Wishing you were here
Why didn’t you save me when I needed you the most?
I finally had to realize, you weren’t going to save me
So again I went for a fall
Now I’m in hell
Wish you weren’t here
Just wished you had called when I needed you the most.

My friend said she'd call me, but she never did that day, so I wrote this poem about how I felt.
