 My thanks to Cl@re Bear for the great pictures.

Lonely Pain

Rejection. Loneliness. Emptiness. Filled with longing to be loved and sadness at being forgotten. Hand turns to pen to release the pressure from an empty heart.

Observe the pain

from a distance:

Head throbbing

Rejection replaces passion

lips longing for

your touch

ache to be kissed.

Breasts hang useless

admiring eyes no longer gaze

at their robust beauty.

They stare dejectedly

at the floor.

Stomach churns

unquenched yearning

dissolves into dread.

Another night

      Ah, when we are alone we have so many useless appendages staring at the floor on both men and women, ten fingers that ache for caressing, two eyes that see no hope, lips pouting and downcast, various sexual parts that only droop in sorrow, great write.~~~MFB III

      Excellent expression, open to a readers vision from many perspectives. Micky just can't behave! He'd track dirt on my muddy floors if I let him!

      Wow! See! If I had a brain I would have said what MFB said! In the words of "Blazin' Saddles"- "he's got a prettier mouth than a two dollar whore!"

      You know I mean that in the nicest way! MFB is my hero! When I grow up I want to be just like him and 50 Caliber! A rottweiler that can write poetry! Just kidding Dusty!

      Oh, How often we are left with useless appendages, hanging

      in dead space with nothing to grasp, or run to, or enter into, or allow to enter in. Hearts beat so much slower, like a metronome marking the time, eyes milk tears in the udders of loneliness, and lips become a tight line stitched

      when there is nothing to press then into blissful fullness.Lovely write~~~MFB III

      You have captured the idea of passion quite wonderfully in this poem.

      I wonder what exactly is passion? And why does it never exist without an object of passion?

      Reason, on the other hand always exists on it's own unless one discovers passion and the object of passion...

      But that is something which your poem got me into thinking..
