Alone Still

I picked a blossom from the tree
and put it in my hair for thee
but you were blind and did not care
I was alone still, standing there

You did not see my tears that day
or hear me whisper, “please, just stay”
I bowed my head as if in prayer
I was alone still, standing there

Only the robin in her nest
Replied to my ardent request
She seemed to understand despair
I was alone still, standing there

The sun went down, the moon arose
the stars put on fantastic shows
but I was blind and did not care
I was alone still, standing there

I picked a blossom from the tree
I was alone still, standing there

  1. This is really very nicely written … I loved the classical rhythmic feel of the poem – you touched that note of romantic love that reminds me of unrequited love … if I might be so bold, I would have liked to have seen “nor” rather than “or” in the beginning of the second line in the second stanza – just a thought though …
