Missed Connections

The light from your phone

paints a blue glow across your face

as I struggle to connect

in this time and place.

I recount the day’s events

and how I really feel

waiting not for just a response,

but a response that is real.

The glow dims and your fingers stop

and I stare into your blank face,

“huh?” is all you can manage

as my words vanish without a trace.
