The Forgotten Souls (Left To Die On The Streets Alone)


In a dream like world
in a dream like state
all that they have
is their skin and their bones

No lights no stars
no sound no sight
just blackened storms
in a turmoiled mind

These are the forgotten souls
left to die on the streets alone

    This seems to acclaim the delusions of life where everybody oscillates between earth planet and nether world. And God also doesn't come to raise our souls. Well write Dave. Nice one... (Report) Reply

    You speak powerfully to us all, and for those, so many who do seem forgotten; let us hope, and do our part to help them feel not forgotten. Great words Dave. (Report) Reply

    A great poem I wrote on called 'His Shoes' with a similar theme. Hope that there is some shelter this Christmas for the forgotten souls. I shall try and do my bit. Thanks for sharing BB: O) (Report) Reply

    The churches in Swansea open their doors overnight for the homeless to sleep in until March, we do this every year. Lovely reminder to us all who have homes. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
