There Is No Other

Your industrial face carries the pain of waiting;
but it never came.
Your flesh pitted with the scars of wanting;
but it never came.
Your heart heavy with the sorrow of trying;
but it never came.
Your voice faint with the force of praying;
but it never came.
Your eyes pale with the sea of tears;
but it never came.
Your hands drip sweat with the worry;
but it never came.
Your soul cries out from the frustration;
but it never came.
For you, it was never meant to be;
It never came!

    Exactly why I rest in patience. If it don't come, it wasn't meant. What belongs come into tofruition, superseding expectations! I like this a lot!

    Hey Bro, a very sad write. Sometimes absolution eludes us and you captured that essence here. Hugs

    Hey David. Just wanted to stop in and say hi, as I've been away for a while. I hope you and your family are happy and healthy. This poem hits pretty hard, David. I had to read it twice, but I think I understand the depth of it now...though its hard to put into words...

    This anaphora form has added depth of feeling to every line David. The human condition leaves so many in pain. A very soulful write my friend. How are you doing?

    Oh at last quality poetry, love this David,,i believe this is related more to the human aspect, then material, but what ever, inspiring at best

    this one is very intriguing and makes the reader want to know who it might be and what happened to this poor soul. Is this for the SAd poem contest? It seems that it is for someone very real.

    It felt to me like the volume and stress level increased with each line, David. Very effective crafting of this poem. Enjoyed it my friend.... Robert.

    Poem is a lot different from what I expected by seeing at the title..It's great piece of work David..Have a good day!

    Repeating lines are great fun. Very effective my friend. Your write shows you have it down pat and max it for effect. Decades ago I wrote many poems using that technique. I love the very high level you have taken it too! BBBBravooooo!!!!!!!

    I like this. Your poems are diverse, substantive, and entertaining. And I agree with Dave. Your use of repetition is very effective. Bev

    I didn't expect this from the title at all. A nice read, well done.

    Dave...I must admit. I did read this as soon as you posted it, but I was so stumped by your first line...Your industrial face....I wish you would explain. It is a great poem, but it has such a sad ending. Must all waiting come to nothing? Hugs

    David, your repeating line becomes more and more effective throughout your poem.. Well done!
