Alas Alone Am I Poem by Rani Turton

Alas Alone Am I

Rating: 2.8

As despair weaves a cocoon around my shadow
Alas, alone am I with my despair.
I had waited for these clouds to lift I had prayed
For these storms to cease
These deities I had tried to appease

By various diverse means; the day remained grey
The clouds did not move away.

Alas alone am I, and I tired, of constant
Conflictual battle; I do not have the necessary
Tools to open up wisdom's door;
Do not have the fierce strength to do that anymore.

There are cobwebs in my nightmares,
The night is peopled by strange shades;
Alas, alone am I, almost merging with the shadows

Dawn will come, I will walk in thy meadows.

Well expressed.I really enjoyed.I loved this last line 'Dawn will come, I will walk in thy meadows.'It gives hopeful and shows loneliness too.Great work.

The last punch line gave a new hope to the feelings of despair. Merging with the shadows and walking in the meadows is a dream-like state of loneliness, which is the destiny of every sensitive being. Good poem, Rani. Dawn will come and you will walk in the meadows. Naseer
