It's just a trivial thing

byUnderYourSpell©

It's just a trivial thing, but still it blistered
my fragile mind with the pain of uncertainty,
slowed my heart wishing that I hadn't heard.

The strident and insistent ring that spurred
an answer then the whispered word 'Marie'
it's just a trivial thing, but still it blistered.

Complacency shaken, another emotion stirred
doubt rode my shoulder refused to let me be
slowed my heart wishing that I hadn't heard.

Thrown sideways, my once safe world blurred,
imprisoned now no longer from this worry free
it's just a trivial thing, but still it blistered.

When questioned he laughed said how absurd
a wrong number, no reason for inadequacy.
It's just a trivial thing, but still it blistered
slowed my heart wishing that I hadn't heard.
