Saturdays Prayer by Brenton Booth

It is Saturday night
and I sit alone on my
sofa watching it rain
it’s not hot
but I have the portable
fan on anyway
my neighbour is listening
to a terrible version of
Ava Maria
and out of nowhere
I start thinking of
her again
it has been so long
if she was here
I probably wouldn’t even
recognize her
but unfortunately that
doesn’t stop the heart
that just won’t
let her go.
