Hermit

Hermit

A Poem by Ana B.

Chasing the long promised

Oasis of wisdom…

Lie is a cogent artist,

Never a cause but always a symptom.

 

Maybe the nearest infinity

Hides in the lonely breaths we take…

But as long as I don’t know my soul’s nativity

Who cares how many heartaches I  fake?

 

And while I wait for the dawn

Of the bruised orange sun,

I know love craves winners of this marathon

                                  yet

Dangerous is the person who doesn’t need anyone.

"I am a rock, i am an island" - not that messers Simon and Garfunkel had concluded they were in fact not human but were in fact real estate - but rather that someone can view themselves as being so independent as to be lacking in any and all emotion and therefore hurt-proof.
Hermitage is, I feel, the holy grail of the ultra sensitive - the exact opposite of that 'rock' which was sang about.
A powerful poem Ana.
Powerful!

You are welcome Ana.
i often become a hermit...less complicated that way...i can fake heartache..write about it...it soothes the need...soothes the need.

Awesomely written :-)
I very much enjoyed reading this, Ana.
Yet dangerous is the person who doesn't need anyone- this is one beautiful and heart throbbing line.

Thank you for the kind words Michael :)
Quite witty! My favorite bit was,
"And while I wait for the dawn
Of the bruised orange sun,
I know love craves winners of this marathon".

Brilliant! I enjoyed your poem. Thanks for sharing.
