Me, Alone

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


With whom I share my breath,

my shallow bleating and tortured rhymes,

shall they know me from inside out,

each step, each blood-letting attempts at truth.


No obligation shall anyone know,

none that contest my singularity and independence,

and the freedom that only I can be, within my soul,

to share with those aligned to my fashioned thoughts.


Me, alone, for all I've done and will do,

can take the path of my fated future,

forged in blood and sweat, searching for endings and resolution,

in an endless and unpredictable eternity.


Those by my side choose to see through my eyes,

to understand the woven fabric of my expression,

and to perhaps grasp a little, the weight of my self-propagating affliction,

the soaring irresolute fancy of a complex mind.


To whom I bare malice as a flawed and temporary being,

I apologise and know fully, I bring pain upon myself,

ever-driving the guilt of imperfection,

and the ineptitude of logical, cumbersome thought.


Me, alone brings all to bare,

the pain, the anguish, the beauty and love,

and I alone shall perish with it all perched upon my lips,

never quite spoken enough, or written about, til ends bleach the shores of life.

Thanks Deergha, glad you connected. There are many aspects of life that are unconsidered, due to our aspirations and the superficial physicality of living.

Nicely done as always....I could relate well with your feelings here. The depth in it is very real though. The loneliness in the world to die alone is the reality. But when we live we hardly have time to ponder. Then all our meaning less run after what even we do not stop and think. Voted up interesting and sharing also.

Hi Tony,

No matter how many relationships we form throughout our years of living...at the end we are always alone when it comes to conscience and entering the next life. After all, we take nothing with us but our souls which have hopefully grown and evolved. As to living in the present, we are fortunate indeed to find a soul mate who can travel the path with us and understand our background, needs and desires, and enrich our journey and spend time with us along the way. Up and interesting votes..

Complex and worth reading through a couple times -- which I did. Good choices of photos to go with some of your meanings.
