Four poems by Joshua Pope

SAD AND LONELY I

When I am sad and lonely
Thoughts drift to you
You were my one and only
Through and through.

 

SAD AND LONELY II

My heart is sad and lonely
Don't know what to do
My heart is sad and lonely
When my thoughts drift to you.

 

UNTITLED

Sitting here thinking of you
And how things could of been
Where did things go wrong

It seems like a life time ago
Since we have seen each other
Where has the time gone

Some call it a mistake
Others call it progress
I call it confusion

I miss you!

 

PAIN

Sitting in Denny's
Another stretch in time
Four hours of my life
Wasted time
Pain.

Burnt out on stale coffee and cigarettes
Memories come back to me
Friends long gone
Love lost to the sea
Pain.

Why do I still come here
I can not say
I guess I am looking for you
Maybe this time you will stay
Pain.

I do not know what happened
You just went away
I have not seen you
Since your love went astray
Pain.

All I have learned in life
Is I can never win
You like the others
have disappeared with the wind
Pain.

I cannot live forever
Not knowing what I have done
I watch you living
Flying into the sun.
Pain.

Now I have to go
I am at the end of my life
I have the desire
To put out this flickering light
Death to pain.

 

I write to ease my pain. I write to ease the pain of others. I write so I feel better but never forget. I am Joshua G. Pope I can be reached via email at Gothicrealm@hotmail.com
