Forgotten Domain

I walk alone.
Everyone has gone
and left me.
When will my time also come?

I pass my old home,
remember the cracked leather
of the sofa
and the way my cockier spaniel
used to curl up at my feet.

Everywhere,
the colors I cannot
take my eyes away from
for they are painful reminders
of my previous life

I walk past the plowed fields
the empty corn stands shivering
and the ghost flowers not rule
the forgotten domain

I stand here
feel the turning earth
below me,
I realize
my time has come.

I was alone.
I walked alone.
while I raise my wings
and take off into the night,
I silently say goodbye.

Your poem is beautiful, it remids me of the dusk right after a lovely sunset, melancholy, subtle. I really like how you described such mundane objects such as a sofa and a dog, then, somehow gave them such significance. Great job!

Could you please read my poem "Deceit" and tell me whether it's any good?

very interesting, I love the writing and the subject...is there something specific you're talking about?

well, it's about a person looking back on their life as a ghost, and they are remembering different memories.
