About the Poem

I wrote this poem one night when I was trying to decide whether or not to call an ex-boyfriend who I had not talked to in a long time and still had strong feelings for. I had all of these thoughts and fears of what might happen if I called. I didn't know if he would be happy I called or if he would say nothing or even hang up.

I wrote this poem and decided to submit it here because I feel it is something everyone can relate to. Almost everyone knows the fear that overcomes us before calling such a person.

If I Called You Now

Would my voice cause you to tremble,
If I called you now?
Would there be a stony silence,
If I called you now?
Would you recognize my voice,
If I called you now?
Would a smile adorn your face,
If I called you now?
Would you know the pain I feel,
If I called you now?
Would I make you laugh,
If I called you now?
Would tears streak your face,
If I called you now?
Would you say you love me,
If I called you now?
Would you damn my soul to Hell,
If I called you now?
Would it matter tomorrow,
If I called you now?
Would it change my life,
If I called you now?
Would you hang up the phone,
If I called you now?

I was actually looking up an old boyfriend when I saw this poem. It made me cry because I felt the same way. Thank you for making it real, that I am not the only one that feels this way!
this is a really good poem it relates to how i am feeling cause one day my x-boyfriend called me and said it was over i dont now what i did wrong or what i did to him but the next day he told me its cause i was never serious about anything but i was and then he would always write me notes telling me i am a loser just cause i went out with someone else besides him and i told him what was i suppose to do wait all year for him and he called me up and told me he was sorry for anything and everything he did to hurt me i really love this poem! keep up the "GOOD" work!
I liked this poem, because I'm going through something similar to this, also. I like this guy I mean I talk to him daily and all but I'm always afraid that he'll hang up on me if I tell him what I really feel for him.
you have to call him give it a chance I did but if you dont try youll never know
this captures the true feelings of that very moment in time. a moment that is too soon gone.
this really hits home with me. we are both feeling the same way. if only we just did it, it would be great.
I love this poem cause i had the same problem with a girl one time and i thought the same thing.
