Poems

Poem: The leaves fall with my tears

I am alone

yet not alone

The seasons changed again

the green leaves mourn their green color fading

into shades of orange, yellow, red

and some ugly shades of brown

To later fall to the ground into the rubbish

To feed the snails – you say

I am alone

yet not alone

The seasons changed again

Tears fall down my face

not to be seen by those who should care but do not

The crunching of the leaves under my feet

a respite to my own suffering

as I witness them die

shades of orange, yellow and red

and some ugly shades of brown

They lay down their lives

on the fall ground

dead again

I am alone

yet not alone

my beard becoming soaked

one teardrop at a time

Noone warned me

that

you

would

hate

me

so

badly

Why?
