Dropped Call

The moment the call dropped
Relief rushed through me
In gust of freedom
I felt my body hum with the escape
And I chose to turn off my phone
I didn’t want another excuse
To bog down my day
To question my every action
For you had painted me crazy
Built your words into a cage
And sometimes late at night
You would toss me a promise
To clang upon against the syllables
Allowing hollow apologies to echo
Throughout my head
And I bought it
Every twisted and spiked remark
Wore each one like a collar
And you were my leash
Dragging me along every day
Until I ate self-doubt
And I starved for compassion
So when the call dropped
I didn’t call you back
Because I really had no place
For your torture anymore
And I was quite content to be free
