Loneliness Poem by Leonard Dabydeen


Rating: 5.0

She creeps around my room
lulling any sound whispering
in the creak of my chair
or the opening of a cabinet
watching and listening
like a hawk perched for flight
then she comes into my mind
with a hug and a kiss
loving me for who I am
and who I want to be
or who I have become
then she tickles me
in the vulnerability of my soul
stirring me into life
and I begin to let my keyboard play
like a piano of my dreams
as I play a song for her to sleep
while I sift through my world
like a spider’s web
trapped in the loneliness
of bountiful joy and happiness.

your loneliness unlike mine is not dull and drab and gloomy but very well sketched and appears to be appealing.....................

Loneliness, how to describe it? What is that it is composed of, that it constitutes it?

This is a very clever Poem, loneness is defined as a female. Great construction.
