The Lonely Ones

by Hallucinostic   Apr 2, 2013

"Ah, look at all the lonely people."
'Me' has been deprived, faith's dried yet saltwater wells from his eyes.
'Myself' has no plans to go, when he knows, the heart's already on death row.
'I' is burned out and lazy, going crazy, changes, changes, changes, it's never easy.
Lonely people, we don't need another one, no more.

Ah, see the pain in all of their faces.
'I' is sinking back into a hole, down into a sad man's soul.
'Myself' is staring at his empty hands, whispering, "he doesn't understand".
'Me' and his hazy mind, contemplating on leaving it all behind.
Lonely people, we don't need another one, no more.

"All the lonely people,
where do they all come from?"
It has been asked before,
and it'll be asked again, I'm sure.
"All the lonely people,
where do they all belong?"

*If it appears that I copied phrases from somebody else's work(Eleanor Rigby), let's just say "borrowed", but it just so happens that I needed to use the same words. It's not my fault they used it first. But if in some ways I've broken the rules, I'll delete it. I'm cool with it.*

    I like this poem a lot. I love how you used the “Me, Myself and I” in here. Makes this different from the way I usually write. But it is good and I like your style!

    I like this very much. Like the use of Me Myself and I and since you credited the use of someone else's words as being part of your poem I don't think that there should be any problem with plagiarism. ( Although I could be wrong you would need to check the legalities to be sure). That aside I love to see unusual approaches to poetry. This is clearly musically inspired as I also feel a sense of rap to it too. Very enjoyable. Keep writing Milly x
