About the Poem

This poem is about dreams and disappointments. Something I know a lot about. Trying to learn how to survive in the world on my own. Isn't what I thought it would be like.

Fallen Angel
It was a very good poem and accuretly describes the way i am now

Hi, great poem. But don't be depressed, Holly you are loved. But the reason I found your poem is that yesterday, well sitting in my car reading my homework assignment, with my elbow sticking out the car window, a lone dove (bird) flew by and touched me. I am a superstitious individual and was searching the net for some meaning of this event. This how I came across "Lonesome Dove. " Keep on writing. Thanks for the poem, it helped in other ways. Lorin, thanks again.

Lonesome Dove

Underneath the maple tree,
I dream of things I want to be.
Looking up at the sky so blue,
makes me think this could come true.

Smelling of the grass so sweet,
refreshes me with a delightful treat.
Feeling of the bark so rough,
makes me realize its gonna be tough.

To make it in this world alone,
just sitting here like some kind of stone.
No one to love me or me to love,
just all alone, like a Lonesome Dove.
