Listener by Danijela Trajković

nobody wants to listen about my love anymore
neither my best friend nor God nor you
but yet there is someone willing to listen
there he is a little further away from me rasping his horns his tail hitting the floor with satisfaction
in the dark I know he keeps listening after the hits and a terrible groan
let him I don't send him there from where he came from

at least he listens to me
