Best Poem of Billy Loving

The Silent Old Man

Body bent and twisted
Gnarled fingers gripping his cane
Face weathered with age
An old man enters the bar
Perching himself upon the barstool
Ordering a drink from the bartender
Silently he sips one after another
As the time ticks away
Glazed eyes staring into nowhere
I watched expectantly
If only, his mind I could read
What magnificent stories would lie within?
Too late, I'll never know
As he wobbles out the door
Disappointedly, I take a gulp
And think of what might have been

Read the full of The Silent Old Man


Alone I stand surrounded by desolation
Under a pale blue sky
Filled with an intense, piercing sun
Brown crunchy vegetation fills my sight
Bloated rotting carcasses litter the ground
A pungent aroma of death fills my nostrils
As I begin to gag
Welcome to the wasteland
That has become the earth
