Alone

Alone

A Poem by Christian Bonoan

I am alone but never lonely
In a place where I call mine
I sit all night just longing
Longing for the stars to shine

I am alone watching the fountain
Waters singing round and round
In a night full of stars shining
As my feet stays on the ground

I am alone in this starry night
In the park and no one cares
Years passed as I released a sigh
I was always alone for many years

I am alone, yes I am forgotten
This may be the way for me to grow
From the words that's making me rotten
Someday I know this feeling will go.

Sorry for the delay. I like the formal nature of this - holds together nicely. But I've got some questions that might be interesting to investigate.

We start off with "I am alone but never lonely" but yet we're "longing for the stars to shine." It's almost like not lonely except for the stars, maybe?

Then the next stanza, we get a "night full of stars." So then I think, Great! We're not alone right? But sort of. Is loneliness a dichotomy? It totally can be!

Then in the last stanza, we learn that there's "words that's making me rotten," and we're "grow(ing)" away from them? So (and I could be reading this wrong) there's something said in the past that caused a change?

IN ANY case, maybe ideas addressed or could be addressed in other poems? I'm being awfully literal so please take with ample salt.

Hello Christian Bonoan,

Such a lonely poem. I feel so sad now . . . and very lonely.

Kind regards,

Loneliness will always be a part of life. Your honesty here has lead you to an independence or liberation of some sorts. Such a pretty little package for something that is part of the human condition. Loneliness.

I am alone but never lonely- such a beautiful and deep line. A sad yet soothing poem!

Always possible to be alone and not feel lonely, but it is sad when you think people have forgotten you. There are a couple of grammatical errors in this poem, but the meaning comes across. Lydi**

Christian, A splendid poem. A 100/100 out of me for carving the words so beautifully that I could imagine the poet's environment and surrounding as well as feel the emotions depicted here. Keep up the good work!

They do similar workouts, possibly attempt to max several times each year, and regularly wind up vanishing from the exercise center completely.
