Writer’s Digest Wednesday Poetry Prompt #486: Waste

Untitled

Getting Their Word’s Worth

His words were wasted on the masses,
hers, on him.
He ran out of breath,
she, out of patience.
He found true happiness
in the woman who could not speak,
& she,
in a boardroom of men
who had no choice
but to listen.
