"My Dear"

by Jonathan   Jan 11, 2006


Loneliness closing in on me
The vapour that is thee is gone
From the ashes a bird is rising
A distant cry shakes me
My sight is blurred
Gone is the humanity
Forever lost is the hymen.
Lonely she stands on the sidewalk
Her cloak flutters in the wind
She's on fire
The distinct odour of gasoline,
Empties my lung
From the ashes a bird is rising

    Very deep and full of bitter truth, yet expressed so effectively that it fills the purpose of the poem.
    Good work!
