Keep Guessing

People crowd the bar.
I’m dancing to your music.
Here I am, waiting.

You want to be friends?
Come in, my door is open.
Hope lights up my eyes.

Then the phone shuts up.
The second guessing bruises
My heart black and blue.

Wow, ouch. I only kind of get the meaning behind all of this, but I feel every word. Nicely done.

Very ouch. That takes me back to pre-marriage...HATED the ugliness of the dating scene.
Great haiku!

I am guessing at the full story too, but this peek into it is quite poignant and powerful.
Sorry for your heartache.

You paint a very clear (and sadly all too familiar) scene here. Well written.
