Had a minute to burn.
I was feeling alone.
I remember a time,
“See you at home.”
I’m seeing your face,
and wishing that we were in the same place.
Do you see what I mean?
I love what I’m seeing but I hate that I’m seeing it all through a screen.
Are you feeling this too?
Oh, it’s strange that I wonder if you’re missing me as much as I’m missing you.
Though there’s no routine,
finding time in between,
moments that overlap
sharing life through the glass.
I see your face,
still wishing that we were in the same place.
Talk to you soon.
Call me in the morning,
or ring, ring in the evening.
Buzz, buzz, but you’re on the clock.
Ring, ring- straight to voicemail.
Buzz, buzz, but I’ll try again,
try again soon.
