Weds poetry prompt: ‘The Last Page’


Today’s prompt: Write an ‘It Can’t Be’ poem

An interesting prompt! Mine ended up being about a pain that I’m sure is all to familar to lovers of literature…

The Last Page

It’s always the way
After holding an adventure
In our restless hands
And losing our heads
In the saga it holds,
Upon reaching the final words,
Then comes the inevitable cry
Of ‘This can’t be all!”
Even if all loose, frayed ends
Have been tightly resolved
And each burning mystery
Is now answered in full,
The familiar pain is still real
Of having to finally put down
A book that has bewitched us so
Until fate blesses us with another.
