Still - Poem by Mark Normand

Alone again inside it seems.
With plastic friends and broken dreams.
I sit in empty darkness beyond measure.
Today just like so many things.
Has ended lost and incomplete.
I failed to reach the special place I treasure.
True happiness is what I seek.
Still I remain a lucid freak.
I write of life with no real love or pleasure.
I write because if I would scream.
No one would hear the words from me.
I'm lost inside this dark cold world forever.

    Such despair..to the poet -.you are not lost as long as you are writing. Your poem reflects an inate lyricism and sensitivity to cadence. (Report) Reply

    Mark, the way you painted loneliness is touching. Great poem. I have also written a poem on the theme of loneliness, 'My Day', you may want to have a look at some point. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes, we experience the highest highs. And at other times, we experience the lowest lows. But one thing we should always remember is: As long as there's life, there is hope. Thank you for sharing this soul-searching poem. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes, our frustration enhances our pessimism. Again, we recover ourselves, from this state of mind.Great write! Loved, the tune very much. (Report) Reply
