The Lonesome Days


Somedays I'm so lonely
I throw acorns into the forest
waiting for someone to call out.

I sing love songs in the street
just a little bit too loud
waiting for someone
to scream at me to quiet down.
Just to hear them
say only a few words to me.

Sometimes I'm so lonely
I speak to the stars
like I'm speaking to you

and drop all my secrets
into the bay.

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
