Thursday Poets’ Rally Week 9The Perfect Poet Award  poet-award/

When I have the blues

When  darkness falls

I  love   to stay alone

In my world of fantasy

My  abode of  ecstasy.

I love   to stay alone

Digging in my inner-self

Rummaging  my  feelings and  thoughts

Pondering my deeds  and faults.

I love    to stay alone

Fantasizing, Daydreaming.

Building  castles in the air

Castles Born of hope or  despair.

I love    to stay alone

drawing    rosy prospects

and dreams so sweet

on    bleak-looking   sheets.

I love    to stay alone

Reading Ancient myths

and tales of woe,

Reading  don Quixote

Fighting an  Invisible  foe.

I love    to stay alone

Writing about my inner self

About my feelings and thoughts.

Writing about my fantasies and dreams

About  my castles built in the air

Castles born of hope or  despair .

Writing about my personal woes

About my  fears and invisible foes .


For nomination, my vote goes to a blogger  whose poetry I  highly appreciate

  1. Solitude ! it is one of the best companions I ever had!! .. your poem captures the image beautifully 🙂 . And thanks for your comments on my blog. They are really encouraging

  2. In my caldren
    In my vile
    I stand alone
    At peace awhile

    My dance is stark
    My quest shrieks long
    Alone in my dark
    While I heed ahead strong

    The white embarks sight
    The black envy intrigue
    As day sleeks back to night
    My fear folds frozen fatigue

    There could be some wisdom
    There is always a known
    In sight of life’s kingdom
    I’ll search for it ALONE

    Thanks for your comments
