THE LONELY MAN


Bewildered, he grasps for the hidden desires his heart has never tasted, for the mystery of love his soul has never known.

Where is the maiden who can break this spell of lonesomeness or is this life's kindness upon the heart of someone not deserving love's beauty?

No one can hear his lonely cries, because oppression is the prison guard keeping him bound in chains of misery, agony and the bitterness of sadness.

Among the knolls of his mind is where he roams, searching for the grapevine of hope to flavor his lips with the sweet taste of love's romance, but to no avail is his find, for the spring of his hope is really like a flowerbed in winter.

Throughout his journey, he is strong with understanding - his strength comes from the snowflake of life's beauty upon the garment of love he knows he will never wear.

Silent sorrow he adores with acceptance, for it is only within his imagination that he beholds the beauty of a woman.

Like sand through an hourglass, the lonely man pours out his sentiments hoping with time that every deaf ear will hear his cries as he speaks the mute words of love through the voice of his tear-filled heart.

  1. Hello Andy,
    With this poem, I can feel the pain of the lonely man and his search for love. He likens the search for romance to a flowerbed in the winter. His mission in life is to find love, but no matter what he does, the only acceptance he finds is there is no love for him. Such sadness for a man who obviously has so much love to share with the right woman.

  4. This is very sad writing, indeed his emotions are shackles that keep his true self from finding love. You've penned this well.

  12. Ah...a Sunday is not quite the same without an Andy original!

    These are the sad thoughts of a lonely, which lend some perspective to the Father's Day hype.

    Thank you for your kind words over at Skylover, and for reading and responding to Renee's interview. I appreciate that very much :)

  13. I love the way you have transformed emotions into nature during the seasons here. The way the guy searches to no avail yet continues on and on is the way love makes us. Even if it is almost impossible and pointless we'll do it for love. Loved it.

  23. Andy,

    I understand the lonely search for a love which cannot be, or cannot be enjoyed.
    I too liked the references to the seasons. Rather like life and love.

    Another gem of thought from your words Andy.
    All good Wishes, Eileen :)
