Assorted Poems

Wednesday, May 04, 2011


Alone on an island of my own making
Away from friends whom I am forsaking
For the solace of my broken heart
I'm shallowly wallowing a world apart.

Alone on an island of my own choosing
And of my own volition losing
The battle of peace versus vexation
At the risk of serenity's cessation.

Alone on an island apart from the crowd
Pondering my trials crying out loud
Groaning and bemoaning my fate of late
I hope all the sadness will soon abate.

Alone on the island looking out on the ocean
Seeing in the undulating waves a boat in motion
Waving frantically from shore, few logs afire
From this island hell I wish to aspire.
