Still Here

< center>

I want to ask of my  family
I want to  plead to those who are near
Please don’t look straight through me
For I know that I’m still here

Acknowledge my  being
Let me know I exist
Please hear my pleading
Please let my presence persist

Tis as if I have no essence
Tis Your  disengagement that I fear
Please see and feel my presence
I may be passed…but I’m still here

I try to touch…
Reach to caress…
But you can’t sense my lips
to yours softly pressed

Tis as if I have  no essence
Tis your disengagement that I fear
Please, see and feel my presence!
I’m so cold… but I’m still here.

I’m so lonely…but not for long
can you  not yet  feel the chill?
For very soon you’ll  join me
I’m  cold …but I’m here still

    I love this poem... it's so good! It's probably... you'll never believe this... one of my favorites!Once again, I want you to know that this poem is incredible... you should really think about getting it published. I know a great website that publishes poetry in a book and you can win prizes. (It's a contest.) You could easily win; this poem is dynamite! Visit poeticpossibilities.tk and you'll find it under the tab: "Monthly Contest." You really should enter it... it is a truly outstanding poem.

    Thanks Jacob, for your over the top comment! I see by your blog that you're just starting to post on this site. Keep it up, I think you've got it in you to become a great poet. One word of advice I give to all poets old and young is "description" You cannot be too descriptive! The more the better. Thanks again Jacob, looking forward to many more poems from you.
