Poetry Day 9


Day 9: Lyrical Poetry 
I found lyrical poetry to be very challenging.. 
I like what I have so far and plan to add more to it!
I actually wrote 2! So, hope you enjoy both! :)
All Alone
{Inspired by song Tanhayee}

The loneliness, oh the loneliness
I have stumbled upon this path of betrayal,
of failure, of love, of heart break
I have stumbled upon this path that is my life
I have stumbled upon this path all alone
Oh, I’m all alone.
My dreams shattered into pieces lay right before my eyes
I feel a sense of gloom that lies heavily above me
All the happiness is numb and my life is nowhere to be found
I am being punished for
Caring and
Trusting and
Loving.
Oh, and I’m all alone
I see no one for miles and miles
All I want to do is see some smiles.
In my dreams I saw friendship, success, love, and happiness-
All within my reach
Now I’m blinded by the pieces of a shattered dream.
I was here yesterday, and today I’m gone and all alone
This loneliness envelopes my every breath
Oh, I’m all alone.
The tears in my eyes
I can finally make them into cries
Oh, how did my strength turn into something so useless
I am now on a journey that led to this path
I have stumbled upon this path of betrayal,
of failure, of love, of heart break
I have stumbled upon this path that is my life
I have stumbled upon this path all alone
Oh, I’m all alone.
Where do I go? Who can I talk to?
Everything I ever wanted
Look at what I ended up with
Oh, the loneliness cuts so deep
The loneliness makes it dark as night
The loneliness, oh the loneliness
I have stumbled upon this path of betrayal,
of failure, of love, of heart break
I have stumbled upon this path that is my life
I have stumbled upon this path all alone
Oh, I’m all alone.
My dreams shattered into pieces lay right before my eyes
I feel a sense of gloom that lies heavily above me
All the happiness is numb and my life is nowhere to be found
I am being punished for
Caring and
Trusting and
Loving.
Oh, and I’m all alone
I’m all alone, all alone, all alone.

Hopeless Romantic
You so far away, it makes me miss you even more
People wonder what it is I fell for
You bring out a side of me, I never knew existed
People are skeptical and think it’s all phased
But what you don’t know is that I’m a hopeless romantic
So, take me, take me somewhere we can be
We can fall in love and be together, you and me.
So, take me, take me somewhere we can be
Because for my heart, you hold the key
You are different, it makes me like you even more
People wonder what is I fell for
We can run away, hand in hand
I have been told love is always unplanned
But what you don’t know is that I’m a hopeless romantic
We can fall in love and be together, you and me.
So, take me, take me somewhere we can be
Because for my heart, you hold the key
I'm now your hopeless romantic
We can have our storybook romance
I still remember the first glance 
You now know I'm a hopeless romantic
So, take me, take me somewhere we can be
We can fall in love and be together, you and me.
So, take me, take me somewhere we can be
Because for my heart, you hold the key
I am your hopeless romantic
We can finally be together, can't you see?
We could drown together in the deep sea.
So, take me, take me somewhere we can be
We can fall in love and be together, you and me.
So, take me, take me somewhere we can be
Because for my heart, you hold the key

Sincerely,
Aishah

  1. Very interesting what you've done with the prompt...you may have found it challenging, but seems to me that you've met the challenge wonderfully!

  2. These two contrasting pieces are like two sides to the love coin. Unfortunately, I've only known the betrayal side. You put into words the emotions brought forth by love gone wrong. Excellent!

  3. And the audience dissolves into sobs after each poem, sad and happier. Bravo for the way you have embraced the spirit of this prompt.

  5. You did a terrific job. I love the rhythm of it and how you reprised "Oh, I'm not alone..." on the first one.
