55-If I Pick Up The Phone

Home alone
With everyone else is gone,
The house grows cold,
I need something to hold.
If I pick up the phone,
Call you:
"would you mind coming along?"
"Yes."
I expect to hear you respond.
Let's sing a song,
Let's dance
And go wild once,
Let's enjoy a date
With our desires beautifully pursued.

*****
This is a fiction, I try to relax and have fun!
Write a poem or a story in 55 words. Give it a try and notify G-man at:

Happy Flash Friday 55!
U R The Best!

Sometimes we just need a friend to cheer us up.

Home alone could be fun if it's like the movie.

It's good to know there is always someone at the other end of the phone,

That was cute. I like being alone sometimes. It is something I miss out on now that the children are home for summer.

Warm wishes,

when you actually want to be home alone,all those wonders that you can do sounds fun and exciting. but when you are actually alone , the fun quickly dies away.. true true

Re: Eric:

G-man does not my last one, kind of boring...thus I have worked hard to do one that is somewhat interesting...not my character...

showme said...

Ed Pilolla said...

buffalodick said...

I get voice mail instead of a person...

steveroni said...

Gosh, I missed commenting here:

This is GREAT...come on over, let's DO some things--a date. Then leave, and maybe one day we shall do it all over again--FRIEND!

This is real, freedom...unfettered love of one plus one, each for the other.

Thank YOU, Jingle! (Sorry, just cannot make the "poetic" scene. Hope you understand. Can we still be friends? (I do not mean "dance, go wild, desires pursued, etc"--grin!!!!)

Here is MINE

great 55!

Reader Wil said...

There are more lonely people then we suspect. The telephone is a great means to get contact. But there are times it's nice to be alone at home: you can then do what you want.

This so relates to my day today. I'm experiencing the famous empty-nest syndrome. I did the shopping, reading, the watching TV, the walking, going out with a friend, nothing seems to ease it. I'll take menopause anytime over this issue...there are no pills for it. LOL
