Poem - Being Lonely is a Place I Go

Poem - Being Lonely is a Place I Go

Being lonely is a place I go
Quiet solitude to cleanse my soul
Needing an empty mind free of worry
The canvas for another story
Beginning my life anew
Shackled by my chosen hue
Images float through the air
Dancing together as I stare
Something unknown to me
Arrives as I struggle to see
Is it my life, a friend who tires?
Or my true self, an enemy that conspires?
My existence longing for inner peace
How long before it will cease?
Living on an island the calling siren
Dreaming about the human condition
Nothing gained for commerce
Everything lost to traverse
The valley of my own mind
Asking God that I find
The scent of life's secrets
Flowering in layered bouquets
Blossoming as I walk alone
Covering me, the stubborn stone

Fantastic--In addition to your wonderful use of words, the lack of punctuation and paragraphs gives it a driving motion, raising the intensity. Brilliant. thank you.

Thank you duffsmom... You are much too kind... I venture forth not knowing the structure; only the driving thought and it's almost like paining in the dark; you turn on the light and it looks like this... or that....
