Alone Poem by Matthias Pantaleon


In a cold room
Am locked up against myself
Shut out from the world
Like a tear drop in a sea
Alone,
Am like a tree in the desert
No leave to shade
No branch for a bird to peach
No wind to dust my hair
No rain to wash my feet
Just me as mean as sunray
Alone,
keeping memories that refused to be forgotten
