Poems of the Lonely

Hoping, but Always Denied

Too often so isolated

Abandoned in a void of pain and despair

Without a sense of being wanted

By anyone at all out there

 

A desire for companionship so strong

Striving to embrace some future shining sun

Yet no one lovely did ever come along

That would want and provide one

 

No one to call upon in times of great need

Like a single bent tree in strong winds having grown

A rose bed of love now just full of weeds

Never really having been properly sown

 

No one special with which to share wealth obtained

An absence of kind words and a warm embrace

A shirt dark, wet and stained

By trails of tears falling from one’s face

 

A dark figure of dread casting their shadow,

Over one’s existence and place

Marching with time’s relentless flow,

Withering away one’s will at pace

 

All from a sad and lonely heart

House on the Hill and The Hollow Tree

HOUSE ON THE HILL

The house on the hill sits all alone,
no one lives there,
that house is crumbling in plain sight,
but no one seems to care,
once that house was strong,
but facing the worlds endless ware,
turned out to be more than that lone house could bare,
that house crashed to the ground with a silent sound for not a soul was there to hear, his cries of pain were not heard, nor were his cries of fear .

THE HOLLOW TREE

A hollow tree stands weeping alone,
blossoming of this tree has long since ceased,
this tree weeps in silent longing to be released,
people pass it by watching but not caring as it slowly withers and dies,
but then one night in a silent fight with a wind that did not care,
this lonesome tree lost its fight,
and was crashed to the ground with a silent sound from a wind.
