Dear Poetry

Updated on September 18, 2014

Dear Poetry,

It's been months since I last picked up my pen, and i want to tell you how very sad I am I turned away from you. I'm sitting here alone in my room cause I've ruined yet another chance at love, and I feel sick inside. I want the world to end. I want the sky to fall down and put me out of of my grief. I want God to send for me, but for some reason he keeps me here.

Why does he keep me here? Am I supposed to endure a life all alone, a life without being loved? Okay, to be fair to all those who have loved me, I know I was loved and I never appreciated it. Maybe I am sitting right where I belong and right where I deserve, and maybe God hasn't sent for me because I'm not done paying for my crimes.

Well at least I have you. You've been the best friend I've ever had. I've cried out my woes to you and never once did you leave my side. I feel guilty for not being as loyal to you, but I know you're not judging me. You just want me to spill my heart out, pour my soul into you and you're willing to wait patiently for me to always come back to you. Thank you poetry. Now please hold me until this pain goes away.

      This is so beautiful and so sad. Writing can be cathartic and is often our only source of relief.Thank you for sharing this heartfelt piece.

      Hey PHILLYDREAMER. Good to see you. Brilliant way you've let poetry be your friend. I've missed the opportunity to eavesdrop on your conversations with poetry. I look forward to listening in on more. Keep writing to ease the pain. Voted up, beautiful, and interesting.
