The Unheard


My phone rings
all too often,
vibrating in my palm;
a new app collects
these callers, 
sending them back
where they belong.
I never even 
get their message,
explaining just
how lucky I am;
each will remain
forever unheard, 
it's all part 
of my long-term plan. 
I will respond
only to you, 
holding the key 
to my mind, 
closely keeping 
the silent secret, 
of why I'm still
so hard to find.
