Strong poem.......I can feel the atmosphere of those words Chris......hope it's not personal........
Thank you Frank .Not about me but I used to work in Tower blocks and have met people
Just like the gentle man in my poem so many like him.
This is something we all experience in life, and it can very easily lead to depression if we don't find some cause to fill that emptiness, a touching write Chris.
I've met a few like him also Chris.......those tower blocks built in the 60s, were a living death for many people alone...sad.....my poem 'All the lonely people,'....was inspired by an old man that I'd met while doing my job...before I retired.."....good poem, I often read good poems many times...
A great read and more poignant after the Grenfell disaster.
Thank you Ann.I agree with what you say.
