Never fear being alone

A whisper in the dark is calling me

Monotonous and lonely at times

Why do you cry behind the tree?

I long so dearly for the divines

Let me carry the yolk you bear

And follow my lead to safety

Safe you will be from my rear

For I will block the world’s insanity

Not a single tear you shall shed

My callous hands are your comfort

I will provide wisdom and bread

If you again fall I will be your support

Rain will fall and will laugh

Be not discourage oh frail one

Like a hawk you will be tough

Beside me you are a great man

Here is the first of my loose literary pieces, this is not much, I hope you like it, but of course, critique are most welcome, that is my way of improving my art. Please feel free to say whatever is your thought in regard to this poem, good or bad, if it's the latter, it's fine you will not hurt my feelings. I always take those kinds of comments as a challenge to be better myself the next time around. :)

I thought it was quite nice, I don't normally read a lot of poetry, but I did like this.

Excellent poetry. "why do you cry behind the tree" is a nice line. Your poem is stuffed with encouragement, motivation, and comfort.

Favourite line would be - "I long so dearly for the divines." Though I'm not that big on rhyming poetry, there's grace here. A nice touch...

I feel a bit depressed after reading this, since I think of dark and stormy night.

oh haha, sorry to hear that but yeah, that's kinda depressing if you think it that way. :)

I'm not a huge fan of rhyming poetry but you did it very well here. I also like how well the title ties in with the piece.

That is a nice and good written poem. And, yes, as the title says, I try never to fear being alone.
