PAD 13: The Last Book You Read

So, I missed yesterday. But I hope to make it up soon. In the meantime, here is today’s offering. The prompt is to take the phrase “Last (Blank),” fill in the blank, make it the title of your poem and go.

The Last Book You Read


The last book you read

But didn’t finish

Follows you around

Like an accusation-


Every time you open the reading app

There is it-

73% completed

Which means it is 27% unfinished,

There is more left to it.


But you abandoned it

Without a word

Without an explanation,

And there it sits

Wondering if you’ll ever come back


Just as you do

After that close friend, one day,

Walked out of your life

Without a word

And left you wondering.
