Lost Soul

Slowly on a road I tread.
The heart feels cold and wasted.
Truth hurts, pain underlying,
Shadows seal in its shade.

Dusk sees a form evolving –
Compensating happiness unseen.
Unresolved within eternity:
Love to hate, hate to ruins.

Silence whispers its tune.
Grim serenity unfolding.
The Southern Wasteland lies desolate
For a bleeding soul to travel.


About DCG

Poetry writing emerged in me as a channel to relieve my angst and aggression against life and express my emotions on subtle things. It became my diary for quite a while. Feel free to experience my thoughts. If you do require my feedback, please leave a note on my MESSAGE BOARD below. Thanks.

    A richly dark poem this week, Dennis! You definitely captured feelings within these words.

    I can really feel this… it’s so easy to become trapped, “Shadows seal in its shade,” and forget about the compensating happiness that can spring the release from melancholy’s grip. Well done.

      Hopefully we get a chirpier follow-up poem soon. This seems to be caught in a web and in a quandary how to get out. Have a missed the glimmer of hope in this poem?

  3. You took me straight into the depths of your words………such good writing!

    Thick and dark, definitely a grim feel to this one. “Love to hate, hate to ruins.” –felt that one to the bone.

  5. Jack says:

    Because the pain is underlying, truth is underlying…excellent notion.

  6. You have depicted an affecting wasteland of the soul in these lines.
