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

    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.
