Forlorn


Like a corpse left behind
In desert by the caravan
That had to go on
On journey unfinished.

Or a toy left in dust
Far away from caring hands
By the child
Who hears father’s arrival.

Or a stranger who travels
Far and off knowing not his destiny
Slowly the sun sinks
Of home he thinks.

Tears no more
Eyes are dry
No strength to bear pain
No voice to cry

I am without you
Like a flower
On the coast of a dry sea
Bound to be twisted

Go not be with me
My life without you
Like a body
Living but without Soul

    Forlorn, the very word is like a bell/ to toll me back from thee to my sole self... how right our Keats is!
    such a thought might never allow you to stay in any (even faint) attempt of the strong refuge of imagination...a deep wistful expression is shared indeed! ! ! (Report) Reply
