The One Call I Missed

Why did you lie to me?
You said you would call
Still I wait here by the phone
This is not how it's meant to be
I feel like I have been a fool
Are you the one who steals my heart?
You say I am the one for you
One who cares would not treat me this way
As I wait I fall too sleep
In the morn I will not care
I will search for my loved one
Do not call I will thrive on my own
Sad is not the way to be
This is how to write a poem with just one.
It is hard to write this way.

For the One to one contest.

    Richard This is a poem filled with all kinds of emotion. Hope, faith, sadness, loneliness, longing, and heartache. Thanks for the wonderful comment on my Web Of Love poem.

    It's hard to stick to strict rules when writing. You've done it so well. The proof, I didn't realize that it was the one syllable rule until I read some of the posts. :) She is the one who missed out. Her loss. Great poem.

    I applaud you with the one syllable word poem. I had zero faith in my ability to do this when I saw the contest!

    A bit to restrictive for my likes.

    She never called and she wasn't the one so all is well.
