The Loneliest Poem

I sit on the terrace
Of Le Cafe du Coeur
The morning sun, bringing subtle rays of hope
To this otherwise dull moment

I sip mon cafe, dreaming of others
And other times
Fine linen paper, pen in hand
The loneliest poem in all the land

The words flow, ink to paper
One line at a time
They sing of thoughts
Emotions long drained, other times

It is time for a walk to nowhere
Along the banks of a river with no name
I leave the cafe table, a cafe with no fame
I left the poem, with empty glass, alone

There sits this poem, written for no one
On a table, in quiet solitude
Waiting for the next clientele to arrive
The waiter clears the empty glass, no more…

She sits, alone, the day begun
Her life a mystery to us all
As she sees this paper of fine linen
With words, so elegantly scrawled

The waiter with espresso in hand, smiles
As she reads a strangers words
They speak to the very desires of her heart
They tell her who she is

This sunny day turns to rain
As her tears wash the table cloth
She weeps
For finally, she knows
Who she desires

A poet with no name

    This was captivating, Arthur! It's hard to put to words what this poem makes me feel like (melancholy comes to mind, though). The lack of thoughts or feelings is your own greatest inspiration... if that's not an oxymoron I don't know what is... but somehow it worked. Way to go for originality!
