Unsolicited Reward


Ceding to all expectations
having given up on hope

Demons return to accost
and at vulnerability grope

In self imposed severance
there is so much I can take

Me too breathe a human
total tolerance can’t fake

Slack line flung for towing
proved proverbial noose

Most of them stood to gain
with me everything to lose

No logic bears a testimony
for this paradoxical stance

Where all indulge in revelry
and with misery I romance

My apathy deemed frailty
silence an acceptable norm

With ignored all sentiments
inadequacy I must conform

Strangers not referred to
but those thought known

As rewards for past follies
which accidentally got sown

Can’t undo all old tangles
keep submitting to subsist

To flow along with current
and try not face on resist

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.
