Listening to “Hey Jude”

I am in a coffee shop right now, and the song “Hey Jude” by the Beatles came on. I wrote a poem about it and only then saw that today’s poetics prompt from DVerse is about song lyrics!

Hey, you, let it out to let it in.

Remember — to let him

Into your heart, and

Under your skin;

You’re waiting

For someone to perform with.


Pray for me,

O saint of hopeless cases.

  1. That last line seems to have a smile and a wink with it – feeling like a hopeless case with a universal sigh. I love the attitude that this poem exudes- the acceptance of knowing exactly where our hope comes from.
