Hale Strider


My lungs fill and exhale

I stand and rotate

No one understands how Cold

No one understands how my head stills


How can there be a cure for the unknown

Gathered from inconclusions

Drawn from emptiness

I need a solution that gives me happiness


Doctor, can you tell me what’s wrong?

What “cure” will I receive?

What wrong conclusion will you make?

I need a solution to make me alive


I want to feel what others feel

I need to feel Love

I need Forgiveness

I need Comfort and Touch


Come a Little Closer

You will not find what you need

You will find what I need

For I cannot give you want and need


The Cold cannot be driven away

Only locked away

      Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed it!


      WELCOME HALE ~ Thank for your first Poem and you comments for clarification ~ OK. The structure of the poem (5 quatrains and a doublet) it fine and it has flow and rhythm but very sparse rhyme ~ modern poems of course do not have to rhyme or scan ! The subject and content is quite intriguing. Your comment suggests the message of your elegant poem is self discovery ~ being different but still needing a "normal" relationship of being loved and comforted. In essence we can empathise with that because that is what most of us also want ~ To be DIFFERENT but to be loved and treated normally ! Thanks for sharing ~ Yours BRIAN (UK) Please check my poems ~ Thanks B
