For Artspark #305

One sided conversation.  Make poetry of one side of an emotional telephone conversation.

What did you say?  Say it again more slowly.
This line is awful - you would not believe
What I just thought I heard you tell me.

Oh.  You did.  I hoped - well, never mind.
How long has this been going on?
As long as that?  How could I be so stupid,
So blind, so easily deceived?

No, I'm not crying.  Don't think you can hurt me.
I planned to end it soon in any case,
Am glad you saved me all the trouble.
I have to go.  I'm running out of credit.
I'll see you round, perhaps.
Or maybe not.
