Alone Alone, the word has finality, No resonance to continuation. It is singularly finite, A dead syllabic solitude. Alone, no sharer of secrets Only timeless ears listen, echoless. Trees of loneliness breathe The stale air of human despair. Alone, the fog swallows me My breath line seen by no one, Erased into endless opacity A walker on the tide. Alone, the transparent image Of one, incomplete body Standing like a black shadow Fading with the sunlight's glow.
C. Lawry Brown's Questions:
Do I achieve the desired effect of the title, that this person is completely
I also try to achieve not only a feeling of loneliness but also a fear that comes with the word alone. Do I achieve that?
Is it effective stating the word alone at the beginning of each stanza?
Thank you for your comments.
