Call Me

Inspired by a Writing Prompt

They didn’t call.

I had been waiting all day for a call, or a text, but never received one. I looked at my phone and saw it was still early. Enough time to go somewhere and get something to eat. Obviously they’re not coming tonight.

I make it back to my apartment in enough time to catch the beginning of Good Times.

I’m not mad

Eating take-out and watching Good Times is more interesting when alone… still, I check my phone.


I’m not mad

I look at my phone one more time.

This time I see a name

It’s not theirs, but it is someone wondering what I’m doing.

Thankfully, through text message one cannot see my disappointment.

I’m not mad
