Yesterday I Was Walking Alone On The Road - Poem by Ali Sabry

Yesterday I was walking alone on the road
I was listening to the car noise
& between the car lights I was seeing your face
Your picture it's shadow in the dark
Your shadow don't need lights to be visible
Cause all of you is lights
You are my light of my way
By your eyes I can see
Without you I'm blind
Why you didn't call me whole these long months
Where are you now
Please let me hear your pure voice for once
I know that the fate is to stay far away from each other
What can we do this is it we must accept it
I'm alone
The walls of my room cried for my situation
The empty pillow beside me in my bed asking about you

    Effective use of contrasting imagery: light and darkness. It touches on fate and loneliness, which I often experience. Mike Walker. (Report) Reply

    This is much the best of your new poems. Still too long and the first part could stand on its own; . lines one to nine then eleven 'where are you now, finishing on the last two lines would make this much better. A good effort. (Report) Reply

    Really touching and I'm personally impressed BUT i find that people make less of an effort to see you since they believe that texting, e-mailing, chatting online, etc replaces more tangible forms of our human contact And that only makes some of us feel more lonely! I hope this will bring a lot of us home. Kudos Ali (Report) Reply
