all alone,I grieve

Updated on July 30, 2012

All alone

like an old bear

Trapped in a cave

As silent as the grave

Locked in, bleeding ,Short on breath.

No way out, no way in.


All alone

Sprawled out on the floor

Frozen, dying of the grief

Upon a door left ajar

To a passenger from afar

Who stepped in with a fake smile

And then ran a mile

after awhile

leaving a scar

in a jar

burning so deep

deepening the weep

No soothing balm can heal

nor a patch can seal

Like a dead man

beneath green grass

Wrapped in opaque veil

Scrawny ,withered , pale

No pockets to carry pieces of a floating cloud

or to hide an image frozen in time.

Nor a straw heaved into sight

up obove through the twilight

to clutch for an other life,

or an other strife.

All is gone,

said and done

once and forever!

      you have an unlimited amount of talent . though you have rough edges, i like the the fact that you rhyme. keep writng and you will constantly get better. do not take my advice as criticism for I was once where you are, and took all advice with the thought that, it was only to make me a better writer. look at other poetic rhyming hubs and you will pick up many small ways that will make you better.
