A Poem: In Solitude.


In solitude,

I stare at the walls,

The cell that surrounds me,

The chains that confine me,

Filled with a deafening silence,

The sounds that once made me smile,




Now gone,

Hello old friend,

In remembrance,

It’s been a while,

For so many years,

You were the one who brought me back,

My guiding light in the darkness,

An island of clarity,Β 

Of peaceful calm,

An anchor when I was lost at sea,

Adrift in a raging storm,

When I felt dead inside,

My promise to you,

It kept me alive,


It’s empty,



Nothing lasts forever,

Time takes us all,

Even memories begin to fade,

As the years slowly drift away,

What is left,

Just broken bricks,

Crumbled stone,

This place,

This abode,

In solitude,

No longer a home.

  1. So powerful. You should put a warning because even though I know you master words, they always trigger emotions and reading this in a room full of people was silly of me 😦 ❀

      1. And that way being simple and rhyming.πŸ˜‚

        Thank you, I’m glad I manage to get feelings across, there is feeling in what I write, some far more than others, some with just a line or two that have meaning to me but this one was completely about how I was feeling at the time of writing it but just because it has feelings I’m never sure I convey them so it’s good to know that I do and people don’t just think oh God another poem.πŸ˜‚
