Constant Sorrow


Everyday
A Sunday

Tranquil I stay
Alone in my way
nothing to play
nothing to say


hairs getting gray
sadness they spray
and depressed i lay
Still without a pay

And all i pray
someone take me away

to a place where there are lots of flies at least I can spend my time killing them

    You could retain the element of suspense all throughout and your handling of the phases of the illustrative poem is superb Kanav. (Report) Reply

    Reminds me of the song bullets with butterfly wings by the smashing pumpkins lyrically anyways.
    This poem definitely has hints of anger, loneliness, destruction with a clock that seems to move slower than time itself. A constant sorrow can be directed to either give life or take it away. Nicely Done Kanav. (Report) Reply

    That's why I repeatedly say - Loneliness in a way is another form of death...... right penning Kanav (Report) Reply

    the pun) . Enjoyed the write. Please read my poem

    You kept me guessing what the end will be like. there you go my dear. the last line is an extremely unexpected end. Very nice and very imaginative. You know your last line is very powerful. yes it's comic but means a lot and makes the readers thinking. What distress! if someone finds killing flies better than.

    I have just got to tell you, there are very few pieces that I read that have made me laugh out loud, yours most certainly did! Not really fair to take it out on the poor flies! ha, ha, ha. I shall definitely read some more. Worth a 10 (Report) Reply
