Sad Endings

Shunned by silence,
no hope at all,
There are no messages--
no texts; no calls.
What saddens most,
in this quiet end,
is I only really ever
wanted to call him Friend.

I love poems that rhyme they are my favorite. I guess this comes from the love of dr. Seuss. But this poem sums it up. Waiting for the call of a special person and getting ignored.

Hmmm, I grew up on Dr Seuss too, but oddly enough as much of my work is free verse as rhyme. Sometimes there's just not much that needs to be said. Thanks for stopping by Rowdy!

this post uses an economy of words to spell out the silence of relationships that emotionally end. and teaches us that what we miss is the comfort of friendship and a companion. it contains a sad truth most Elequently projected with the tip of a fine pen. well done Jude

'Shunned by silence' Perfect first line for a melancholy but elegantly written poem...Go directly to my fav poets list. Do not pass go...

Thanks Tim. There are many ways to shun a person. Absolute silence is one of the harshest, I think. Thanks for the fave! Hugs~Janet

I really like this. It is a short poignant poem. Simple is often better.

I agree. If I can say it in senryu or tanka, why would I use 13 lines for a sonnet? Or use a bunch of quatrains. Sometimes shorter writes are more open to interpretation, or we go one in a longer write and the message is missed because we were too wordy. Thanks Andrea for stopping by. Hugs x
