She sat there staring,

At the phone which wasn't shining.

/

The TV was showing,

A movie about stealing.

The cigarette was burning,

Steadily, constantly.

/

She sat there staring,

At the phone which wasn't ringing.

/

The bottle was tilting,

The amber liquid sliding.

The clock was ticking,

The moon's position moving.

/

She sat there staring,

At the phone which wasn't blinking.

/

The credits on TV was rolling,

The music playing.

The memories start crowding,

The heart kept sinking.

/

She sat there staring,

At the phone with tears flowing.

/

Waiting, just waiting.

For a text,

A call

That wasn't coming.
