I Cry Alone

Time passing all around in the air Seemingly so without even a care On the ground an empty turtle shell Off to swim the vacant waterless well Watching from inside the tree so hollow The Pied Piper plays and they all follow Staring blanks into that black hole sun Marching prisioners from the lost race run Hark the demons and how they do sing Calling out unto the sacred buried things Echoing reverb in the darkness so vast Spiral downward crazy how it goes so fast Searching for answers in all that's unsaid But left speechless and one of the undead Anticipating that strife and all the misery Quietly awaiting amid all that haunts me Counting the leaves while they do fall down During the removal of such a gifted crown Grasping fiercely stubborn for what I may When all the cherished goods steal away Screaming silence and left in the wake As the mirror begins to crack and break Turning to the darkest parts deep inside Bravely I dig into that cesspool of pride Bringing winter's bitter yet sweet icy cold Touching the shards of glass ever so bold But the shattered pieces turn into icy stones And while bleeding among them I cry alone Copyright by Scarlett Sepulvado Anderson

    WOW! This is so very sad and morose, Scarlett, but an awesome write that evokes well despair. Yes, I find despair in here. Even everything good is stolen away. I hope this is just a write and that life is bringing you its smile. If this is a reflection of yourself, somewhere in the dark, Scarlett, there is a light and you have to find it, because that is your destiny and you need to believe in it. Have a great day! Thanks for sharing and thank you for your comments on my poems. Caroline.

    Smile ~ "Joy & Hope & Dreams & Love," are among the companions that shall forever grace "Your Precious Life" ~ Going to fave "You," & this poem; "Darkly Beautiful; As A Forest Upon A Moonless Night; Yet, 'Dawn, Always Arrives!!!'" ~ "My Love & Warmth to You Always &, All You Love," John! ~ Smile, "Have A Very Blessed & Beautiful Evening 'Dear, Precious Gifted Scarlett,' Amid The Rejuvenating Crowns of, 'Beautiful Love;'" Bye, "Dear Lovely Lady!":) ~

    Smile? ~ "'Scarlett,' What A Very Beautiful Name; Fitting It Seems, Towards A Very 'Profoundly Deep & Beautiful Soul!!!'" ~ I have read "Your Beautiful Poetry" before &, "You Are Sooo Extremely Gifted;" probably because, as this "Astonishingly Stirring & Searching Write" here dear, "Your Beauty" seems to reach, to the depths where true treasures lie & yet, one can only hope that, this is but a moment if at all, of a passing dark cloud, so swiftly within "Your Life & Time" that ~ ....Cont:)

    I liked this. This could touch on a number of things depending how you read it. I try not to read into things as I work with kids who use their writing as a coping skill. For some it's easier to write than talk. God Bless. Vince

    This is very moving, Scarlett. Hope you're not really feeling this sad right now. When we're lonely it seems hard to focus on anything but pain. Take care, Diane
