Alone Poem by Robert Charles Howard

Alone

Rating: 2.1


How could I ever understand
what it is you choose
to call existence
and how could I ever
tell you what it means to me?

A solitary dot stained
on the canvas
of the expanding universe,
I sense a primal shiver
whenever, 'stranger'
cries out from a page
or whispers in the aether.

February, 2008

Camus was more terse, but more wordy than your poem - but perhaps he provided context for your verse. A thoughtful, and thought-provoking penning. - Will

Powerful and thought provoking, with so many layers to savour. I especially loved the last 3 lines - I swear they made they gave me goosebumps! Hugs Anna xxx
