Alone at your doorstep

I sit alone at your doorstep
depleted and refused by today

my soul has been longing
my body is waiting to flee

tears are flowing down my cheeks
my voice has lost its only key

used and abused by my past
empty and down on my knees

skin has been used by a substance
in return of some hope and glee

I often find myself begging
my soul was spent upon thee

miseries of joy have cast a spell
of tormented death upon me

I dance so fiercely in reprieve
with tears of joy and my worn out dreams

I set out on a spending spree
to flaunt the relics of me

knowing that my days are numbered
I spent the rest of me

deceived and dejected by the traits of death
spells are rationed, it said

my life is so vacant now
profusely sweating my needs

I see my virtues burning in hell
in this world that I tried to dwell

scorned by the compulsions of life
my ending is nowhere in sight

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
