Silent in this chilly room
Bundled up in memories,
and a jacket,
Black like my mood.
Too quiet here
Alone in my self made tomb,
Emptiness stretching out like centuries.
Stomp another cigarette butt
As I sit and brood,
Thinking interaction might be the cure.
In reality, I understand
that this lonely
Is of my own desire.
Surrounded by people,
This emptiness wouldn't mend.
Friend, in name only,
Give me a passionate night before I retire,
Alone again and feeble.

What poetry is all about but have also begun developing
The skills that enable a poet to express the concrete and abstract as a
As a unique and unified whole.

I like the part "alone in my self made tomb" it says a lot about the specifics of how you feel and how you want to feel. It's like stating to the reader that you are not here in this chilly room by chance or fate. You decided to be here, to be that person and yet you realize that you might want more.
"Thinking interaction might be the cure" is another one of my fav phrases.
and I like "give me a passionate night before I retire" and I feel like this is more of a plea to the gods, to the universe, to whoever is watching and you turn from being in control and making the decision to be in that room, in that empty apartment alone to someone who desires to make a connection, to meet people, to feel something new but who refuses to admit it, and only admits it in the dark and chilly room.
Thanks for a good read. It goes well the weather I'm having today... It's pouring out..
