A Road Still Driven

At dusk`s eerie cry: We rise. Winds prevailing in no direction, hurricanes lacking a calm eye. Twilight walkers deceased in spirit. Our quest begins. A damned trade trailing on quicksand. Plummeting on a city pavement. Eyes gape reflecting thought- disdain in decent women, impertinence from men, boys tremble. All screech- "Woman of the night." IN DISGUST. Even I aspire for a stable port. Dreams of discovering the land of Home. My lewd road still shamefully driven Only comfort a compass without North needle.

    This is cryptically beautiful to me. The full meaning of the poem might be escaping me. The last verse describes you without compass or home.....I hope poetry helps you find have real talent.

    WHoa Yvette! This is a powerful write! I love how you've developed the theme and brought out the angst - the disdain shown by human beings towards their fellow human beings is daunting indeed. Very well written poem!
