all i got to say is

you better be dead.

you better be in a ditch someplace,

out of your head

 

cos if you coulda called

knowing i was here waiting on it

what does that say about how you treat me?

it says plenty.  it says it all.

 

i got to ask myself,

do i really still feel the same?

is–

 

hello? baby?

what happened?

sit tight, sweetheart.

i’m on my way.

    Yep ” when they turn the red light on/it’s emergency, ” as a country song once said–then things get put into a different box altogether.

    “You better be dead, because if you’re not I’ll kill you.”
    OH, yes! Sometimes the big guy here doesn’t phone (“Well, I was busy, you knew that!”) until he’s at a light ten minutes from home. Meanwhile, I’m living on antacids, and the dog is frantic.
    Nobody says it better than you do, however.
    Luv, K

    …and we will answer the phone and grab the keys every damn time, in spite of a hatful of never again.

    Yes, the waiting is killing. One has to give way, either one! Nicely coalblack!

    It’s a good thing we’re alone when pushed to this point …nicely captured.

    Ah, the ol’ tough act – it’s there for out protection, but how easily cast aside when given just a glimmer of hope…
