Stark - Poem by Stevie Taite

All matter and existence
build from the concept of quark

Everything you need for life
Fits on one Arc

A misty graveyard with just
the song of the Lark

The raving madness that takes hold
and makes you bark

The cutting bluntness
of a succinct remark

Barren, the searing desert.
I fight the urge to disembark

A broken mind, in the shade
of depression, so dark

A winters morn alone
on a bench in an empty park

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Don't like that word!

    Beautiful write. I love the last stanza most
    A winters morn alone
    on a bench in an empty park

    the first thing that strick is its schem
    good one
    do refine it with diff look
    like 3 2 1 or 5 3 1 words in each line
    as m already working on but in vain
    yo did it well....... grt show

    Nice poem Stevie, but in the third from last verse, should that be barren (you've typed barron) ? (Report) Reply

    How is it like? What if not alone? Company matters the most That is a very nice poem. Every part telling a different story. Well done Stevie
