Random Poem: No More
by Alisa Js

I will no longer look for solace
As solace for me left years ago
Abandoned in this godforsaken world,
and these futile steps to have connected
Covered me with dark aspersions I tried to fix
Who am I kidding?
I might as well admit
What they all seemed to know
I'm good for nothing
Except to be burned
And left for whatever reason can be mustered ...

There is no hope as I have cast them all away
Any options residing
Lay awaiting on that pickled-pink horizon,
With band-aids we did swim to certain shores
Without a chance in hell
Of reaching heaven's doors ...

Yet, I wrote and wrote
Dreaming of the day
Thinking of that one, somewhere, out there for only me
What a joke!
A crazy laugh!
We tried, we did, both you and I
Fading now, with all the rest
Into endless space and nothingness...

Those before, do know this truth
It's just fools like me, so desperate to believe,
My reward?
Blown out to the wind ...

Dark, dark, dark and delivered nicely in the wind...
