Left Alone

alone and lost~

Left alone, alone to wait, for stressful things I had to face; Mentally, my thoughts of late, were pondering my ill-found fate.

Loneliness at best is worse, than any foe I’ve had to rate, naught to grapple, and still defeat, with no one there that I could reach.

What? Millions walked upon the streets, but still none stopped, my eyes to meet; are they afraid to look my way, unstable souls with tripping feet?

How long to stay, how long to wait, to be released from miseries gate; from twi-light zone, so dark and drear, with gladness sought, to shed new tears.

A fire with-in, and eyes ablaze, I searched and looked for days and days; until I found that it was me, whom hope had lost, along the way.

Theres people, people, everywhere, how sudden they mystically appear; they speak with love, to dispel my fears, Wake up lost-one, your friends are near.

April 25, 1997

We wake to discover it was always us to create the nightmare... I enjoyed this read and the message, we are all feeling alone, its nice to be reminded we're feeling it together. Thanks.

Just beautiful! It flowed perfectly and spoke to my soul. I have felt just like and have written poems inspired by that. How you can feel all alone in a crowed room. I loved it!

To be in a crowded house and still be alone, it is solitude magnified.
