The phone is ringing.

But I'm too busy doing nothing.

Just sitting all alone

indulging in my suffering.

There's a knock at the door

but I'm not home.

My heart's not here 

only my bones.

I can't see the path

because I'm blinded by fear

I don't dare ask

you to come around here.

I'm tired. You're broken

Together we're alone.

Sinking and silenced

in the water like a stone

Your poetry is very poignant....

I cannot imagine with what depth you will be writing in twenty years from now.
A brilliant expressionist and deepest of thinkers you are.

Unique poetry...very heartfelt, expressed...poignantly!

I love your writing, it has such a great rhyme and flow to it. I love this poem, especially the lines "There's a knock at the door but I'm not home.
My heart's not here, only my bones."

"together we're alone"...that is such a powerful line, especially followed by the next two many nuances of fragmentation, that even in togetherness their is a separateness...this was a compelling read, nicely done.

This is simply excellent. Short lines well thought out so ably describe the hopelessness and futility of the depression we sometimes find ourselves in.

Hope you are feeling better now.
