Losing Patience - Poem by Sandra Martyres

It calls for tremendous patience,
Super special listening skills,
A sympathetic bent of mind,
To focus on the long-winded tales,
About her pedestrian life style.

For many long years, I have been
That bottomless receptacle,
Into which she emptied her stories,
With wave-like regularity,
There's now a danger of over-flow.

She needs to stop the loud talking,
Lest I have a nervous break-down.
I can no longer tolerate
That unending inane banter,
It's time for her to find a new friend.

    A story of life so nicely told!
    To me, the second stanza seemed the best:
    'For many long years, I have been
    That bottomless receptacle,
    Into which she emptied her stories,
    With wave-like regularity,
    There's now a danger of over-flow'.
