Closer to Self no Reason to Grieve

Closer to Self no Reason to Grieve

A Poem by IMOGEAN

 
 I have been living my alone
As if it were a lover to be shown
 
In the wake of a lonely day
My heart years for a different way.
 
This life that seems so dead
Is alive, if only in my head.
 
I breathe in the scent that is now,
And wipe the moistness from my brow.
 
If only in my dreams,
Excitement real, I live it seems.
 
And this day that feels a waste, I believe   
Brings me closer to self, no reason to grieve.

This is soo beautiful and true. Exactly what life is about: I believe we need to find our true self, going backwards to the middle, back to the creation, to the beginning of everything. I liked this write filled with honest self observation away of gloss-over, just the naked truth. bravo !!

Before I submit a review, please confirm line 1. Is it correct or should it read 'my life alone'?

Writing about self and emotions is pretty difficult, especially in the shape of a poem. Your words truly touched me, some for my 'self'... but maybe, you could have used prose-poetry rather than use rhyming? Really don't like to say things like that - feel free to tear my stuff apart - but I found this a little restricted. The phrase '... this life that seems so dead is alive, if only in my head' - touched something inside me.

(Just read the review below...oops, sorry, seems that we partly feel the same way.)

I really like this poem for its theme regarding the self. It would take awhile for me to properly analyze and describe it, which is the sign of a great concept.
However, I disliked the presentation. The rhyming seems forced and unnatural but the imagery is okay.
Overall, I'm glad I read it, but I didn't really enjoy reading it.

Just my opinion.

I thought this piece was very nicely written. Keep up the good work.

Very well done. Yes, indeed. Once you have come to peace wtih yourself, there is nothing outside of yourself that can bring you down.

Amen to that, spring and rebirth from death, (or of the heart death of loneliness), even if only transcendentally.
Thank you, I find this a very hopeful poem.

I like the song you have up as well, it's lovely.

The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, serenely, divinely aware... And this is why I write: AWARENESS... It is not in the moment that I tasted the delicacies of life .. more..
