Stormy Seas.

Stormy Seas.

A Poem by Angeliki Largatzis

We stand alone,
and we conquer -
the intimidating mountains that nobody dares to climb.

What are tears -
when you alone scream them out?
What are feelings -
when you alone express them,
and there is nobody to hear you out?

We journey alone,
and we ride -
those stormy seas that will swallow us whole.

What are words -
that are the knives to a person's flesh?
What are hearts -
that drown themselves in self doubt and hate,
and there is nobody to understand?

We sit alone,
and we voice out -
our empty silence that crumbles the noise.

And what of us,
as we go mad -
within a whirlwind of thoughts,
and the vengeful clouds that loom over -
that drag us into the stormy seas...
and bring us home.

I agree dear Poet.
"And what of us,
as we go mad -
within a whirlwind of thoughts,
and the vengeful clouds that loom over -
that drag us into the stormy seas...
and bring us home."
The above lines. Hard, reality and true. The whirlwind of life lead us to home. Thank you Angeliki for sharing the excellent poetry.

very powerful words that makes the poem wholly motivating. All the stanzas are good but the opening one I like the most. Its so true and you expressed it with poetic beauty- "We stand alone,
and we conquer -
the intimidating mountains that nobody dares to climb."
Thanks for sharing!

That is the sound of speechlessness.......I - am - in - awe!! This is the best I've read from you yet, and I wonder if there would be a poem in your current repertoire that can top this. THIS IS YOUR BAR right now, my friend, and it's freaking high! You have splendid imagery and imagination, brilliant flow/musicality, and you top it all off with a bowl of juicy philosophical cherries! Holy kwap! WAY - TO - FREAKING - GO! An absolute gem of a poem. Well done!
