Efa, good bye - # 6


Not just an electronic device
But like another heart
which would beat
with every message,
every call.

A delightful means of 
communication.
Surreal depiction of technology.
A friend in need.
I owe you the best conversations.

It's not one big deal,
you are a sum of tiny little
beautiful things
and even if I say I am in love
with a human, it's not enough
I cannot deny that I 
love you more than
any other thing,
any other being
in this world

But now the time's come
to let you go
Farewell, my love,
you were the best phone
I could've ever had!

PS: I am two days late for this one, Day 6, but it's apt nonetheless! :) Thanks for the amazing prompt! Seemed it fit in just well with my situation!

Here's the prompt: And now, our (completely optional) prompt for the day! This might seem like a bit of a downer, but I challenge you to write a valediction. This is a poem of farewell. Perhaps the most famous one is John Donne’s A Valediction Forbidding Mourning, which turns the act of saying good-bye into a very tender love poem. But your poem could say “good-bye” (and maybe good riddance!) to anything or anyone. A good-bye to winter might be in order, for example. Or good-bye to the week-old easter eggs in your refrigerator. Light or serious, long or short, it’s up to you!
