The First of the Great Poems

Hi all!!!

This is the first poem of the blog, written by an incredible poet who on this occasion wished to remain nameless.

Enjoy!


I have fallen.
It was such a long way down.
I reached up for your hand
But you pulled away
I looked up at you as I tumbled down
Your face was smooth as glass.

Your eyes watched me with no remorse
You knew it was right to let me go
I was no good, a weed among flowers.
I had to go.

Upon the hard ground I landed.
A thorn pierced my foolish heart,
It’s pain barely dulled the ache already there.
And though I tried I could not get it out.

The years went by and I grew old
Haunted by love of the few
Who’s very lives had sparked with in me a dream
That could never be.

Surrounded by cats, the only beasts
who cared to give me affection,
I still can feel that thorn in my heart
Taunting me of what I longed for.

Fire flickered around me ,feeding
on the humble shack I had found for myself.
It’s burning heat ate my home
And licked at me to get it’s feel.

My cats deserted me and I am glad.
Poor as my love is, I gave it to them
And desire to see them live.
But as for me, in my homely gown
I give myself to the flame, glad to end it.



I think that this deserves a round of applause. Well done, anonymous poet!!!
