Uriah Hamilton

Alone In Ann Arbor - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

I walked alone
In Ann Arbor last night,
But you were
With me again on South Main
Among the college kids,
The restaurants and book stores,
Everyone moving around,
The folk music
Coming from the Ark;
Sweet Lady, you’ve won my heart,
Even though we continue to linger
So painfully apart.

    And did you hang out at the Pretzel Bell? And yell 'GO BLUE! ' Lovely college town, Ann Arbor. Spent much of my life there - wonderful sentimental trip down memory lane. Thanks, Uriah!

    The solid image of a specific place is a foundation for a universal experience. The language is also elegant, I add. I liked the twinge when the reader realizes what 'you were with me' really means. (Report) Reply

    A lovely poem about love, Uriah. Sometimes a certain heartache becomes even more prevalant when we visit all those favorite hotspots without that special someone. Well done. (Report) Reply

    Well done, Uriah. Do you by any chance know a little place called Mesick (N of Ann Arbour) ?

    lovely poem.. Sometimes going to a known place alone tends to reminds you the person you went with the previous time you've visited it.. life is hard!

    This is a universal feeling, Uriah. All of us stroll across some campus or some city street with a lover who is no longer in our life. It is a sweet, but empty feeling. Thanks for this.]

    She must be a real angel to have stole your heart as she has Uriah....hopefully she'll come around. I love the poems with Michigan references, I could picture you strolling through my campus! Very romantic poem. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
