Matthias Pantaleon

Rookie - 289 Points (August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

Alone


In a cold room
Am locked up against myself
Shut out from the world
Like a tear drop in a sea
Alone,
Am like a tree in the desert
No leave to shade
No branch for a bird to peach
No wind to dust my hair
No rain to wash my feet
Just me as mean as sunray
Alone,
keeping memories that refused to be forgotten

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
