THE LONELY BOY KNOWS AND WONDERS

THE LONELY BOY KNOWS AND WONDERS

A Poem by kublakhan27
"

12 02 98

"
The lonely boy knows
The feelings of the haystack needle
The fear of the pawn at the knees of the king
The cower of the lowly Baltic under the massive Boardwalk
The shadowy edge of night life
The friends who defy loneliness with seeming ease
The schizophrenic cyberspace
The isolation of the ace

The lonely boy wonders
If a man is a man who writes of daffodils
If there is a partner for everyone
If the partner's half a world away
If there is something wrong with him
If lonely girls exist
If love is true or just fictitious
If he's tendered or just vicious

Putting up something like this over twelve years after the fact could get me charged with indecent exposure...

this write has touched my very core. it speaks of the many lessons i have learned from the many nuances of love and life's experiences. it also ponders many of the questions which haunt and plague my very existence. i don't think i have ever read anything more beautiful and profound by your pen...awesome. nice accompanying song by journey, i would like to suggest another by them from the Trial By Fire album "it's not the rain".....enjoy

This is a tender side of your writing, indeed!... I shall tell you, this one truly grabbed my heart!... you do have a way of changing things up and giving your fans a new perspective of your thoughts.. This one penned with gentle sadness, lonely wanderings of forlorn questions...

"The lonely boy wonders
If a man is a man who writes of daffodils
If there is a partner for everyone
If the partner's half a world away
If there is something wrong with him
If lonely girls exist"~ A beautiful journey into your naked thoughts... vulnerable, and endearing...

A Stunning write!~xo~

This is a superb poetic treatise of all the questions we need to answer to try to connect.....and how many remain unanswerable, the older we get. I love the form of the poem, with just the last two lines of each stanza rhymed. This is a significant poem, Steve. P.

Loved the imagery and your word selection was fantabulous.
''The schizophrenic cyberspace'' my favorite line.
Strong piece. Thanks so much for sharing. You are definitely an inspiration.

Thank you Keely for reading and inspiring me as well :)
Great illustration of what takes place within the mind of a young lad wondering about what the sentiments of life have in store for him at a later date in time during his adult life. Great write. :) Just a another variation to your writing style that works well with your penmanship. Pen on.

The lonely boy is such a thinking boy! Loved the wonderment and the awesome questions put forth so poetically here. "The fear of the pawn at the knees of the king" - A 'vow' for this!

Then, beauty just spills from your pen here....
"The lonely boy wonders
If a man is a man who writes of daffodils' - An example of truly fine thinking and so very touching too...Just like whether love is true or fictitious. I often wonder too. Just did not have the ability to pen it with such finesse!

Thanks for sharing! :)

Thank you Divya, your support is always an inspiration :)
An interesting piece of work for sure. I enjoyed all of the imagery here...so many great "snapshots" that end in a bigger, more global metaphor. Nicely done.

Ha! Our lonely boy was curious:) Not bad. Curiousity didn't really kill the cat. It led him to a lake and discovered that he was after all a tiger:) On the other hand, knowledge is not measured by the quantity of words spoken but by the quality of thinking. This poem tells a lot about you:D
