There may be no good at all in November .......Verse

Look at this gunmetal sky and think back to
days I'd rather forget
No not jilted loves or lonely nights alone
it's the pure reality I regret

One teen child locking himself in the cold
solitude of his own room
Thereby holding back the wolves
that might devour him soon

I know in many ways those who
could did their best
But isolation is a lonely lover
long removed from my nest

Yes the solitude's of self imprisonment
bear wicked scars my friend
They will remain too
out beyond the very end

And with no reason at all
I feel these echoes even yet Alone
I have created a monster of sorts
one that beckons still it has shown

And these gunmetal skies remind me still
of hunger of loneliness and of shame
The smell of alcohol and tobacco and
raising of voices like some tragic game

I know I know grow beyond it
those walls that I put up before
Yet November winds hold tightened reigns
and remind me once more

There may be no good at all
in november

Great poem

Are you writing according to your own experience.

It tells a very vivid story in such a good short poem
