Treasure Island

Tess Connor

(30/10/1992 / Mt Gambier)

Loneliness


A lonely flower in a field
A lonely child does not yield
A lonely star in the night sky
A lonely man gives up to die
A lonely car in a lonely street
A lonely girl admits defeat
The loneliness affects us all
A gutless fight, a pitless fall
A lonely time in my daily routine
Sets the tone; a deserted scene
A lonely cow under a lonely tree
A lonely soldier, this is me

    This poem is crafted and drafted well. I enjoyed this short poem and stood in boundless amazement at writers way of depicting the neglected things in the life.

    Hats off to the poet!
    I wonder if could see my poem on similar theme for its contrasting style :) :) :)

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
