When There Were None

When There Were None

A Poem by Rana
"

Contradictory feelings

"
Walking solo amongst a crowd,
With numerous people all around,
Words, distinguishable, float in the space,
Whirling in a whirlpool of other sounds.

Reading voicelessly in a peaceful den,
Reality fabricated by the writer's pen
Recognising friends, teaching oneself
Rapture encases, solitude ain't dull.

No form of intelligence nearby,
Nothing but the clear blue sky,
Nameless sea beneath the steamboat,
Nourishing an onward flight.

Million miles away from the mass,
Meditating, awaiting contentment.
Murmur of gulls, racoons, squirrels
Madenning feels the loneliness.

Wherever you are, whatever you do
Relish the company, share and care
Noise of your species, the comfort is rare
More than you think, more than it's fair.

First, it's all W's, then all R's, then all N's, then all M's, then WRNM. It definitely brought everything together. I admired the tone and exquisite word choices

"Wherever you are, whatever you do
Relish the company, share and care
Noise of your species, the comfort is rare
More than you think, more than it's fair." - favorite stanza

Keep up the good work! :)

Thank you, Gaston =) (the WRNM thing's like it's skeleton hehe, happy it worked). Thanks much!!
Your last stanza has a wonderful tone.

Life is such a mix of deeds and thoughts, good and bad. Your poem encapsulates that and your Author's note does your words great justice, is like a flattened silver frame somehow.

Many thanks for sharing.
