The Barred Choices

The air filled with mourns
In an empty amphitheater

Waiting forย the carnival of souls
Returning to the home ground

As the slowly dropping silence
Melted into the deplored voices

Of the unheard and unwanted
Joy of the barred choices

    1. Thank you very much ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you like my poetry. Sadness sometimes defines individuals. It pushes you to your limits, it also makes you see good in people.. Sadness makes you want to make other people happy.

      1. my pleasure…….
        it does… are so right……!!! reminds of of something i wrote as a comment on some post:
        shelter her with care,

        for she doesnโ€™t demand;

        like a lover.

        she seeks your attention

        as an abandoned child,

        staring from a corner,

        looking for affection.

        love your sorrow
