Her desperation is made plain

In one brief phone call

And she hears the words

She has been dreading for days.

She bitterly holds back the tears

And dispenses spiteful remarks

They help her mask

The searing pain.

She can't talk anymore

Meaningful words desert her

Her composure is breaking down

She wonders why she feels this way.

A flood of emotion

Compelled her to make one last endeavour

To rekindle their love

But it's all in vain.

Her pleas fall on deaf ears

Her gift of love has been rebuffed

And there is no comfort for her

Just the bitter taste of rejection.
