You call

My name and I look your way

And I wait for what you have to say.

But nothing seems to come out your mouth and so you look away.

And I stare at you for I guess I expected more.

I wait for you to turn back around just a little longer than I should have.

For you didn’t turn back or even explain why you called my name and looked my way.

But it was clear you had just wasted my time and energy.

When I had better things to do before you distracted me.

And a part of me was mad and irritated that I had even entertained the fact that you had anything to say to me.
