Forever Alone

by Tony   Jul 5, 2017


The words I've scrawled across this page
Have a meaning that haunts me still,
Animating in my mind
After all these years they kill.

And so I pick up the pen again
Though it feels foreign in my hand
And stare once more into the Abyss:
The wreckage of all I've planned

My words tend to disarm and charm
Those who come to read
And in their heartbreak I have planted
From my own ache a tiny seed

Whether its a weed or flower
I will never come to know
I have never had the patience
To stay and watch it grow

I sow these seeds in my lines
Nurtured with feelings I cannot say
And when it comes time for them to bloom
The world can reap whatever it may

I think I prefer it this way
Let my echoes remain unknown
Let them take this how they will
And leave me in my darkness...

Forever Alone

    JUDGES COMMENT: Tonys work always seems to mirror my emotions which grips me and I seem to be nodding along with his work more often than not this is no acception. It's well written and rhymed which I believe makes for a fantastic piece and I feel when a poem resonates so badly with me where it's rawness and emotion reaches out to me as with many others it shows that even if this poet isn't going through this right now that he has been there and knows exactly how it feels to need understanding

    I'm a sucker for well rhymed poetry especially if it includes good imagery and an emotional tug. This piece encompasses all of these things - excellent x

      Thank you Milly, it kind of goes hand in hand with my personality. I love flowing rhyme that makes you nod your head or tap your foot as you read it.
