[Poem][Lonely Address Book]


Ever feel like giving something you own a voice of its own? I’m sure some articles of clothing you have could speak volumes!

Lonely Address Book

I feel empty inside,

But have so much space to give.

I’m here for your benefit,

I have no agenda of my own.

There is only me in here,

So I do feel special,

In some small way.

But you hardly open me,

Have you memorized my digits?

Have I become obsolete?

But it’s only me in here,

So I much be special,

I was the only one worth writing down.

I’ll stay here, just in case

You forget, seven little numbers.

I’ll be in your address book,

Just little old me.

  1. You’re going to think me a horrible old woman … but! It seems that you need to do not a spelling check but a grammar check on your work, because you don’t want people to be enjoying the read and suddenly come to halt, saying “WTF …?”, do you?
    Check line no. 9 and you’ll see what I mean.
    And believe me, this is something I do all the time: the mind is travelling independently of the fingers, and they type things I don’t mean them to.
    I shall be back to read more of your work, later – and that’s a threat. [grin]

      I don’t quite see what you mean about line 9.
      I can see that I actually have a slight spelling mistake on line 10 which I am about to correct, but as to the grammar of line 9, could you explain what you mean?

      We all make mistakes, as we both just found out. Thank you very much for pointing out the mistake. Sometimes I write directly onto WordPress and it doesn’t always catch the grammar errors as opposed to writing on Word.
