Appreciated

Appreciated, but unloved,
I have lived my life.
Broken hearts,
I have been there to mend.
Brain drain,
I have been there to assist.

In sickness, in sadness,
In blindness, in deafness,
In ineptness,
I have been there.

In my own hour of despair,
I am alone.
Those I have helped,
Nowhere to be found.

Ignored.
Isolated.
Aloof.
Alone.
Appreciated,
But unloved.

Melon

Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

I had been here before, but I was ignored wholly. Apparently, people here are a bit more receptive now, so I think I might post more often in here.

Politics are booooooooooooring (well, when not incorporated into poetry ).

Great to hear melon!

This is a great piece--the rhythm of the poem really gives off that detached feeling of being unloved.

Excellent poem, melon.

I felt as if you were writing what was churning inside my own head, but I know you were not. But it's good to know I'm not alone.

I know your garden's full
But is there sweetness at all?
