Ring, Ring, Telephone Ring

picture source:

It’s the ring of the telephone,
hollow, foreboding in a nuance
the rising hairs on the back of your neck
freeze time in the most unpleasant way.

To hear the hellish message
a distorted line twists in your gut,
as the darkness reaches right into you,
through your skin, right into your heart.


  1. Yikes. I am envisioning this being a call in the middle of the night,
    they are seldom good.

  2. Hello. My name is Jerry, and I am not trying to sell you anything...

  3. Calls in middle of the night bother me NOT.
    It's that "knocking on the door" with a baton which gives me the bumps
    Liking "appropriate" photo...
