Listening To The Stones Poem by LeeAnn Azzopardi

Listening To The Stones

Rating: 5.0

Alone in my apartment, listening to the Stones
I wondered what went wrong
I tried to write you a verse that would made you stay
But I couldn't find the words
You left the apartment early this morning
For you needed to catch a flight
I woke up too late to make yr coffee and eggs
Guessing that you wanted to break free
You went like a thief in the night
Stealing my prized possesion
I rose from my bed and cried in the shower
No one could hear the sobbing through the water
Now, it's the afternoon, as I am still listening to the Stones
Mourning the loss of my everything

It's no Stone who wrote this! We feel your pain and the open abyss.

Stones can also speak, laugh, smile and sing. Only a poet can see/observe/discern a stone having life. Loved the personification. Top score.

Inadvertent mistake: only a poet can see it through his poetic acumen.
