The Forgotten

The Forgotten

A Poem by TheOther

Isn't this the end?
Isn't this goodbye?
He lays on the grass alone and cold.
He does not speak, he does not think.

His eyes face with an empty look the sky,
but he does not truly see a thing.
He does not move, a lifeless body
He gave it up, he had no hope.

Night and silence made a pact.
They stole the boy's soul.
He now sleeps eternally,
as people pass him by, indifferently.

Alone and cold but no one cares.
Not even him, he cannot care.
He cannot feel the ache.
The night and the silence took the boy away...

This is the end but no goodbyes.
There is no one to say goodbye to.
In memory of you,
the forgotten one...

You don't know me,
but I remember you.
You were lonely
and I am lonely too...

Sad, but great peice of writing. I like the last line. " You were lonely and I am lonely too" and the line " You dont know me but I remember you" Great job.

This is amazing. Such a beautifully written poem with strong emotions. I can feel the sadness in each lines, the pain and grief for the dead person.
"You don't know me,
but I remember you.
You were lonely
and I am lonely too..." Wow, those few lines are incredible, so powerful and deep. Keep it up.

Hello theOther,

I am trying a new review format so don't be alarmed. Deep, and emotional. Very good flow, and well written. Reminds me of my own existance, silent and alone. Wandering thoughts of insanity.....Great read.
