On the Hill Top

On the Hill Top

A Poem by Silly_Clumsy_Amber
"

An abstract poem representing loneliness, pain, waiting, and wanting to help others.

"

On the hill top near the sky
There is this one tree that stands alone.
It stretches its branches in the shape of a hug
Holding out its arms for anyone to come.
The tree is there all four seasons of the year
Its branches always waiting for someone to show.
It sits and sits patiently like any living thing can
For someone to trust the tree and shed a tear.
And in the winter the branches become bare but still it gives off warmth
Even though no one is there to be by this tree
That collects snow upon the bare branches
Caring enough to not die by the dangerous winter thorns.
The tree then cycles into the spring
Pink inviting buds sprouting along its surface
Now decorative to please
While it still waits for someone to come use its wing.
The tree that was alone in this time
Again waits for the cycle to spin into summer.
Where now all the kids are outside alive radiating hope
But are by the pool and not the tree that wants to help their lives.
Autumn comes gusting in and the green leaves from the summer turn to a gold
Where the warmth in the hug shines off from the sun
And the tree still waits for that someone to arrive
So it can please instead of rotting with the growing mold.
No one ever does come to this tree however
For nobody wants to make the journey up the hill.
Even though the tree is always there for others in every end
Nobody notices the branches stretching out waiting for just one hug.
So each year it passes through each season again
Lonely but keeping its posture the same
For just the thought of a person coming for a hug
Is enough for the tree to not give in to its lonely pain.
The tree waits and waits upon this hill
Its branches wilting but not close breaking
Because this tree that lies above is one that is strong
As if it's made of iron that can be used with the power of will.
So on the hill top near the sky
There is this one tree that stands alone.
It stretches its branches in the shape of a hug
Holding out its arms for anyone to come.
