Texting

I take myself out
4 coffee,
then text myself
2 look important
& less lonely.

For Open Link Monday at Real Toads

I confess I've texted before to avoid talking to someone else before...

Ingenious poem, as always!

Sounds like a lonely person regardless of how she's seen by others. Nice capture.

Awww, so sad. So even gorgeous, amazing, intelligent, funny and talented beautiful people get lonely?

Gail said...

Sad but beautifully written sadness.

A universal truth.

Confession time .... I've faked a cell phone call or two or three in my life. Your poem is short, sweet!!!

Kerry O'Connor said...

Haha! This is the true story of many. I love the tongue-in-cheek commentary.

Shawna said...

Whew, your first line is harsh ... as if you are a sniper killing yourself.

Wow, loneliness in a nutshell. This stung a bit.

When alone I would clear the baggage of messages. I would also update the address book. Good thinking MZ!

Short and not sweet, but none the worse for that. We took ourselves out to vote and felt the Loneliness of the Long Distanced Democrat.

I love this, and thought it hilarious, then realized I'd missed the last line. Only five lines and I missed the one that turns it on its head.
An excellent write, all five lines of it.
