It was way past midnight
Tossing and turning
But she still could not sleep
She caught herself thinking about him
For the thousandth time
Wishing in vain to know
What he was doing now,
Why he wasn't calling
And was he thinking about her too?
Sighing deeply yet again
Pacing around, restless
She looked at the phone accusingly
And it just lay there innocently, unmoved.
And suddenly, it rang.
At that moment, she stopped breathing.
She felt her heart stop beating.
The clock stop ticking.
The world stop moving.
She answered breathlessly,
As if she had run a mile.
Just the sound of his voice
Washed away all the doubts, fears
And the paranoia.
She felt at ease,
She found herself breathing again
And her heart finally murmured in content.
