fools in love

to hear the disappointment in someone's voice when you call to tell them you're coming to town is unbearable. even bad reception can't hide that hurt. maybe it's not really disappointment, but it's certainly a lack of excitement. and maybe even frustration at the thought of having to catch up with someone you let go.

late at night, when i can't sleep, when i shuffle through the leaves on the street, bundled in ten layers of cozy comfort, i wonder what he's doing and why i should wonder such a thing at such a time. my mind grapples with why his words just ran out one day. the letters ceased and the phone stopped ringing. i fight the urge to fill the void with my own words, telling him he never has to say another word, because it isn't true. he has a lot of explaining to do.
