In front of me, as you gaze and admire them.

I am a missed phone call.
I am a letter lost in the process of distribution.
I am a website that always loses your connection.
I am a soft, lonesome “Hello”.
I am a run-over stop sign.
I am an unplugged television.
I am an unoccupied bench.
I am a dead battery.

I love how by the nearing end of the poem the message of forgotteness becomes clear in this poem. And I also love the fact that you left it open at the end for the reader to think and really excercise their brain. Asking themselves, "What would I have put there if I was the writer?" Or "What line would the writer finish with?" Anyway, excellent.
