The sad ones

The sad ones

A Poem by Alex Vandool

The stunningly beautiful sad ones

So smart and funny

Don't praise money

Let it pass with aristocratic grace

Before musty revolutions

Busty resolutions

Knew it easy and knew it well


Nature's gift to fiery souls

Shhh!

You can't ignore it

The mesmerizing depth of weary feeling

Eyes for kneeling

Years of dealing with such heavy loads


It's personal, and spiritual

Universally physical

They've felt and thought it all

True and true


Then break the rules here

Negotiate a path through labyrinthine pain

Anxiety like gravity

A certainty

That pulls apart but won't let go


Now solemn lips of dignity

Now charming old hilarity

A spark of wonder there as innocence survives

This miracle of skillfulness

This marvel spins humanity

Each one a perfect symphony

Of youth and age and hope


You're every single part of you

The Hessian angelinic blue

Those looks

That calm

Your transcendental face

I swear you are writing about me, though minus the 'transcendental face', almost everything else is close to describing me. Well almost except "A spark of wonder there as innocence survives" I think I ran out of wonder years ago. Come to think of it maybe only half this poem, or maybe 1 third of it best describes me. Even if it actually doesn't this is a beautiful piece of poetry you should be proud of. Kudos to you for an exceptional work of writing. And continued success in your writing journey.
