Rondeau ~ Sad poetry

In Portman Square

by Sugarray77

Sad Poems Contest Winner 
Beneath a bench in Portman Square
you'll find the dregs of life are there.
Old needles in the unkempt grass
are hidden by cold, fetid ash;
dark desolation scents the air.
This urban, city park is where
addicted build a make-shift lair
and seek for shelter as they crash
beneath a bench.
When hopelessness brings on despair
and listlessness robs them of care,
Temptation whispers that they're trash
and urges them ~ consume your stash!
blank eyes, unseeing, as they stare...
beneath a bench.

Writing Prompt
Sadness has overcome us all at one time or another. Either caused by a relative or close friend's death or from the girl or guy that broke our heart or just life in general. We all handle situations differently, some good, some bad. This contest gives us the ability to explore this. Your poem can also play into other emotions that are common to writing like this such as anger or depression.
