Poem: Question from The Inner Self (a close chapter)

Tell me, why should I be alone?
Is your heart not kind?
To see the greatness and the representation
of love, that is so hard to find,
And the awareness, you are mine:

Tell me, why should these tears;
Trickle pass my chest?
And allow my soul;
To feel very vex?
When I lost myself to you.

Tell me, why should I go solo?
Is my heart—face, body, my mind
not pleasing, pleasant to you?

Before you say farewell, or I do
to another, please remember,
the times, we dance, kiss, laugh,
the tears, now a frown, not a smile:
You have woken my consciousness
To the struggle, to love me more,
that felt, life was meaningless,

And so unkind!

About the author

empressjournee

This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
