Poems of the Lonely

Have you heard the people howl

When they are not mad or drunk?

Human words do not allow

To express the state of funk

When you have no one to share

Not the bed but just a word

When you shout in despair

And meet no wishes to be heard.

When your letters are ignored

All aspirations are deferred-

And you are flawless now:

Nobody cares for you … Wow!

 

***

 

Unmoving, floating

In the stream of life

Being carried by the slowing current

I grounded on bottom.

Life is passing by

Without moving me.

It is late autumn.

The winter’s coming

Soon everything’ll get frozen…

Charming.

Chasing Suns

My poem is entitled Chasing Suns and I wrote it shortly after my girlfriend broke up with me… She was my first love and is still my only love… It’s almost been eight months since she left me and I’m still madly in love… It’s really no fun :-\ anyway, here is my poem.
i hope you find some meaning in my words.

Chasing Suns
by: Lee Mintz

There exists a home

in a land undefined

By word nor by sound

a lost page of blank line

And though I may dwell

in its spacious confine

It’s a torturous existence

without your home next to mine

This landscape bleeds emotion

pools raindrops obscene

It grows salted and withered

its wounds grow unseen

I froze fast in your fire

wandered lost in between

My sweet darling ember

and our horizon pristine

Darkness descends tearing sleepless asunder

bringing a beating heart still

An infant still lives fading faster toward slumber

under walls of concrete will

No one tear shall flow from this sorrow

chasing endless suns of sanguine spill

I now live lifeless life borrowed

keeping pace with harsh words

“the end, until…”

there it is
every single line has relation to something she and I did together, something she said to me, characteristics of her, or something that happened between us and i feel that this is my best poetic work to date. i hope you agree.

 

Castles in the Snow

We’re walking out into the snow
not knowing our way back
Burning with the endless cold

faces cast down
tears flow in frozen rivers
waters have no bridges
and the plain goes on forever
and the snow goes on forever
and the pain goes on forever

they told me I could find you here
and so I came
but if you were here once
that time is memory

ah! I am lost
I cannot see my way
out of these dreams
this castle made of ice
reflects me off of every surface

sometimes I think that,
looking into its transparent walls
I can see what was
what would have been
if this cruel weather had never come
spilling from my heart

But there are worms within us all
eating our hearts

ah well
I’ll rest within the palace
one night longer

dance with my dream prince
while in the world I’m dying

Comments:
In this poem the “we” refers to me, but I have been fractured into two people. I went to the far north to find an old friend, who I had been told resided in the beautiful capital city of that country. Eventually I reached the city, but the stories I had heard about it did not hold true; instead of reuniting with my ancestors/people from my past, I found no one there. During the journey I became ill but I would not stop seeking the city, despite the complete lack of encouraging signs along the way. The sickness did not cause my split, but it made it worse, my dreams and hopes coalescing into one person while the real me weakened in silence. The prince of my dreams kept promising to show me to my friend, but days passed and he did not do so, providing me with luxury and entertainment and leading me to believe that he was in love with me. As I neared physical death, the prince’s face became a death mask and I knew the truth. That was when I finally got up the resolve to go home, my dream self fleeing the prince in terror while my real self turned her feet homeward with only the faintest strength. That was when my friend started appearing in my dreams, and though he did not speak, he put his arm around me and made me feel protected.

Blank Expressions

Jennifer Boyman

A pointless quarrel, myself only in mind
my future sorrow, how could I be so blind?
until tomorrow, kindness you still don’t find
Blank expressions
A stab wound, there’s no blood,
mind is untuned, clouded love,
convulsing, I start to scream,
I can’t believe it’s not a dream
Blank expressions
Blank expressions are all I see
frozen eyes that stare at me
your skin now cold and firm
time is up now its your turn
I stare now into your eyes,
frozen, staring up at the skies
my life now I dread,
it is my fault, now you’re dead
Blank expressions
