No Family

Updated on December 4, 2011

Lonely Days

Source


No family

A grey sheer tunic with buttons that can’t be reached from the outside

A body spray that promises to keep you dry from the kisses of children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces

Strong, arms

Toned and muscular from pushing forward hearts away

And used for carrying burdens for none but one

Akunna Sept 2011

There was nothing more to say when I wrote this.

This is a short poem with a touching theme which should not be handled roughly or commercially.

Did you hear it?

      ..well I have no family either in this world and at times it can be a terrible lonely desolate feeling which I felt in your words - a great writer like yourself can always push the emotional buttons of their readers like a poetic conductor.

      akune,

      Oh, I feel the loneliness in this. My parents are both dead and I long for the feeling of family. I am rich with other family and friends but nothing replaces Mom and Dad.

      Thank you so much for sharing.

      How did you find the depth when you have never been there?
