*Engaged tone*
"The subscriber you are calling is busy on another call. Please try again later"
"I am sorry no one is presently available to take your call"
"You are getting a busy tone on this number."
"Can I call you back?"
"I'm sorry! You are not allowed to make this call"

And so life goes on
with unfinished calls
unsaid words
and a cellphone
that one wishes
would beep

This is the poem I always wanted to write on my blue days but never could because it just felt too hazy and stuck- and you've done it with so much pained good humour!The joy of seeing a un-word-able feeling transmuted into neat little eloquent lines is well... hard to word!
