please call me tomorrow

My numb pocket
Swallows a clutched fist
A crying infant to a mother’s arms
Are my sinking eyes rolling
From inside of my head
Onto my phone for comfort
Blinding blankness 
Slips into my quivering tear duct
Burrows into my wavering spirit
This Immediate reminder of distance
Deeply despised

Failing to cope
Last moments of this self-imposed incarceration
Extending vindictively
You’ve left
I’m lost
No notice 
Just torment on emerging identity
Filled with my first hopes
Your Saturday let me believe

Endless searching
No empathy
Love’s splinters
Stick to the walls of my mouth
Each breath heavy
On the blank screen
Of my miserable phone
