Forgotten But Not Gone - Poem by Erasmo Rayon

“Alone” is the peace I can’t fathom
The unimpressive morrow that yields no sorrow
“Alone” is the company that will not wallow
The invisible friend that resembles no phantom

Silence is the melody sought
Ethereal peace that calms the heart
A battle that is not needed fought
For peace is no atheist art

“Alone” is the company I can’t fathom
The invisible friend that yields no morrow
“Alone” is the peace with no sorrow
The unsightly place as pale as a phantom

The silence of your company
Is all the melody I could use
And even if I may be alone
I know that I’m not on my own

    I thought the first two stanzas got this poem off to an intriguing start. The idea of 'Alone' struck me as similar to the concept of being at one with the way of things, with nature. The fact that this poem turned into a love poem weakened it in my eyes, though it is still effective and has some great imagery. (Report) Reply
