Alone And Forgotten - Poem by Selina Gurgacz

It all began when I couldn’t walk,
They left me outside on the sidewalk.
With no food or water,
I thought that I would only last a day or so.

I was all alone.
As people walked by,
They just stared at me and kept walking.
I knew that after a while that I would loose my speech and my hearing.

Then I knew that I was certainly,
Alone and forgotten.

    Lina, placing yourself outside yourself and becoming something you have to use imagination to visualise is the first stage to being a poet. Writing only from within may give you a reputation but writing from without gives you a repertoire... Well done, Ivan (Report)Reply

    A simply expressed poem about loneliness and alienation. Your show your reader your predicament without sharing too many details, which I like. It gives the reader a chance to use his/her imagination. My first reaction was that you were a little dog? Great title too. love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply
