The worst morning after

the routine of every-days' business 
the phone keeps on ringing
breaking news keeps on breaking
the shopping list grows
lots of not yet answered mail in a hose
schedules and appointments to keep
despite the night I could not sleep
and a huge whole filed with  emptiness

the routine of every-days' business
I picked up the phone
because I felt so alone
I dialed the number on autopilot
but on the other side it remained quiet
I am facing the reality of the loss
a tough message that I would not get across
now I balance lonely on the border of an isthmus

Note: first version of a poem(1st stanza) I could finish a year later(added the second stanza) after the first write and finished ( added the 'cherries on the pie to me personally) only days ago.. posting the original first version as entry for the contest "The Worst Morning After" 

The extended version also posted on the Soup.

Check out my poem "Holiday -  Greeting-card -  to fellow SOUPERS"and I hope you'll excuse me for not responding or commenting in the upcoming weeks/month(s)...
