I sit by my front door
open to the coming morning
and the silence of the dawn
soothes my troubled soul.
I wallow in my own mystery
alone in this semi-darkness
until daylight strikes
to reveal the world that
has isolated me from itself
and all joys of living.

Editing stage: 


Once again you have created a soul full crystalline poem.

Regards and best wishes,

raj (sublime_ocean)

but the whole truth
we endeavour to raise your morale
may more such versions of life
immortalize you

Between workshops and life it's hard to find the time to just read.
This one is up to your usual standards.

W. H. Snow

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley

I always appreciated your comments, I understand, I am not much of a comments writer. Difficult to control key board==Parkinson's suddenly "turned on me". But I enjoy NEO so much. The quality of poetry is outstanding....and I read everything.

Mille grazie, Wes

A great piece though sadness seems to rise before the sun.
Hold in there young soul, the dawn will be a beautiful one, Yours, Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Good job.
