Loneliness at birth ......

To wonder of where it originates lying
beneath shelters of shaded solitude
Like so many I suppose
yet we remain
We're born into it I'm sure
like the rebirthing a crippling deformation
That every one looks at first
upon introduction
And then even too late
even upon the cure
the damaged sychy already deformed
So much so that the
very image of beauty in a woman
Brings not but an echo
an echo of loneliness so complete
the futility already felt
The heartbreak already felt
the affair complete
Even before an introduction
And still ......it is what it is
and its reality not so bad
this pain
For loneliness bears its own
And even lays them away
when the time to
leave this world
comes slowly by

Once again, you have demonstrated your immense talent! I believe we have all felt this type of loneliness at one time or another. (you may want to fix the typo in the title.) :)

Thank you for sharing your poetry. Up and sharing.

Ed: Very powerful words and so true. Brings to minds words that are so flippantly spoken to children who, after decades of living, are still affected by the influence.

be mindful of what you say, before you say it...but you my friend have said it so well....Wayne.
