"the lonely poem"

the lonely poem
sat by itself
on a blog
with just one entry -

the poet never
came back
never gave the poem
any neighbors
any friends to talk to

it sat by itself
unnoticed, unread
a piece of internet
waiting still

perhaps you'll find it
and read it
maybe even share it
with someone you care for
and it will have
fulfilled its purpose

it won't be
the lonely poem

and you can carry
its thank you
for all of your days

This poem was inspired by the prompt "to write a lonely poem" from Poetic Asides.

So, today, I've started to post some of the poems I wrote in April. I won't post them all, because some of them just aren't any good. But there's a few that I'm willing to share.


  1. you have to post it a friend =)

  2. I enjoyed your Reflecting poem on day 20. :)

  3. Thank you both. I'll definitely post it some friends, and I'll be sure to include that Reflecting poem as one of them.
