Poem: Where

Where

This has been the lost time
Spinning, balance has fallen askew
A house of cards in strong winds
With only rotten wood strewn about as foundation
A hollow base that can bare no weight

Where are those I once helped in one way or another?

Too busy
Distracted
Afraid, or missing the words
Promising, with empty intention
But certainly not here

Silence
A clock ticks
House walls creak
Leaves fall and scatter
Remembrances are painful
Baring shattered faith

Where are they all?

I totally understand this one. It's very sad but very true.

One of the best I've read from you.

utter loneliness ... in a time when any word or acknowledgment would've made everything so much more bearable ... so sad ... but most of the times the plain truth

Yes it's sad. I've been in that place. So honestly descriptive. Nice work.

It's my first visit here. I will visit again. Thanks for your visit to my blog.

Quite honest, it sort of hit a soft spot in me.
I'm enjoying your work.

I like this poem very much. Sometimes the only consolation is what comes from within - that and a few cats help.
