Treasure Island

Jennifer Conrad


Alone and Homely


I am alone as a woman could be
Is there a man who could ever love me
I question and wonder what it’s all about
Until my questions are all shouted out
My blue eyes could kill
But here I sit still
Alone and lonely
Feeling like I am homely
Questioning when will I make good
And feel the love of a man like I should.

    I like your rhymes. You write and tell a tale. Your lines all become what you are trying to say, and the end just rhymes so nicely. I was surprised to see only 2 poems posted though? I was ready to read more. You are invited and welcome to read my rhymes too if you'd like? I'll be looking for more of your poetry. It's nice to read rhymes that tell a story. You have a way of getting the reader's attention! Good job. Deborah Cromer (Report) Reply

    I like this poem. I'm sure it's something many women have felt at some point and you've reflected those feelings perceptively and clearly, nice write. Thanks. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
