A place still lies Lonely and untouched Every night it cries Seeking for its walls to be patched A place still lies But dead in its self With broken memories And an empty shelf I struggle to find myself In the midst of all the strife But above me a cloud of darkness So thick, full of sadness The place will still lie But not utter a cry It shall continue to die Because no one asked why

Great poem. One thing: pls replace sadness with emptyness in your stanza because of two reasons: first- the title needs to dwell a line, second- a cloud of dakness explains the fact fo sadness itself. Beautiful lyric.

A poem that expresses what most passed through...Sometimes loneliness strikes so severely, yet we continue to search and find the right place....Hoping you'd have more nice days...Sara...

Aw, this is so sad and lonely. It is a feeling many of us have been through. Your last line really got to me. Very well expressed. Wishing you happier days. Love, Shar
