I Walk

I Walk

A Poem by CircusNerd

I walk a lonely road
I ride the boat of solitude
My wingman fly a distance behind
So far back, so little fortitude.

My sanctity I uphold, weak
Soothed by ushers of forlorn bliss
And promises, bygone and meek
Sear with words, a remembered kiss.

A quatrain to alleviate ache
To bring feeling back to the soul
Of the back, which breaks and breaks,
Telling the tale it's always told.

"Memories of days gone by"
I scoff at the implication
For a hellish oblivion knows no time
I satire the positive connotation.

The banks which extend their hands out towards me
They hold no joy; promise no faith
Let's just pretend I never spoke
Let's just pretend it's not too late.

The path I walk, I'll walk alone.
You may hear me pass by in the night .
Jibe, Pray, Give, Feel, Touch, Kiss, Scorn, Reel
You prey upon my will to fight.
But never once will I falter.
Never once will I lose sight.
I may walk on alone, silently.
But I walk on towards the light.

sometimes there are things that you just HAVE to do yourself...even if it means pushing folk a little off kilter..I like this poem for its honesty alone

Man..this is heavy. I dont think I've ever read such a violent fight for one's soul.
I'm in awe and at the same time inspired. Incredibly deep thought.

This is a poem of great fortitude, you capture the pains and contradictions of feelings so well. That line 'a hellish oblivion knows no time' is awesome, or at least I am in awe. Great write!

your friends are only as far away as you make them
there is no need to walk a lonely road because that only leads to a heartbreak hotel
amazingly cone, creative use of imagery, faith is there all we need to do is find it in ourselves and others
