Please Let Me Know

Please pick up the phone.
*ring ring*
Just do this for me.
*ring ring*
*ring ring*
Pick up.
*ring ring*
Fucking pick up!
*ring - *
Could it be…?
"Welcome to the 02 messaging service."
Of course not. Never.
"The person you are calling is unable to take your call."
No shit, Sherlock.
"Please leave a message after the tone."
What's the point?
I think that 20 missed calls
Is a good enough indication
Of what I want
To say.

Yet I whisper anyway, my last shred
Of idiotic hope, presuming that all my words
Will fall on deaf ears.
I know it's stupid, but I'm undeterred.

"Please... Please call me when you get this."
