Alone But Not Lonely - Poem by Lyn Paul

Alone but not lonely
Broke yet not poor
Down, yet not out
Smiling, but not laughing

Blessed yet not enriched
Hurting though not pained
Hearing but not heard
Risen yet not rising
Old but not elderly

Living..... Though, Not alive
Sweet and never sweetened
Angered though not angry
Fearing..... but not afraid

Awake and often woken
Beautiful, Inside and out
Anxious to lose these anxieties
To find again real life

Too honest
Hungry for success

Alone but not lonely

    i sometimes indulge for days in the sorting through of very mediocre poetry. i am tempted to write scathing comments on syntax, punctation and the like as you saw in my sarcastic little piece. in your case, this is, not the case. you are a very talented writer. and coincidentally as a child my favorite comedian was Paul Lynde. be well.

    Sounds like a poem about starting over when one is no longer young but not yet old. It's a scary but exciting proposition captured in your writing. Thanks for sharing! :) (Report) Reply

    Excellent write Lynn, reminded me of 2 Corinthians 4: 8. I like the style you used here, straight but profound, spontaneous and striking at the same time. The poem's simplicity makes is beautiful. (Report) Reply

    very nice admission i picked ur name form some audition where i also spoke about women

    A 12 year old daughter etc etc step she.....bloated.............. by his.............

    sad such things happen
    but then guys write books and earn
    teach those baaaass to use condoms
    if they enter small kids at random
    sad their minds are at tandem

    as women want them in theirs often
