Post-weekend Poetry 135: Alone by JJ Williams

Welcome to Post-weekend Poetry and the one hundred and thirty-fifth poem in this series. This week’s piece is by JJ Williams.


alone 834935Alone

yes alone

I need to be alone

Alone, there I like to be

Alone, in peace



from you all

all you minions of corruption

all you tyrants of peace

I need to be clean



from she who cried for me

from her unceasing calls

her unending disturb

her morally dangerous weapon



I need to be Alone

from all you fake tutors,

pilots of education

who claim to be cornerstones

for childs’ upbringings

and yet in black and hideous places

reaping them of their little means of survival



from all you

who try to disturb in times of meditation

wasting the time I have left to use

making me forgo

my only means of peace and solitude


I need to be alone,

leave me alone


I asked JJ what prompted this piece and he said…

I felt sad.

It certainly comes across. Very atmospheric. Thank you, JJ.
