Loneliness - Poetry from the Heart

Updated on June 25, 2015

Loneliness seeps deep in the bones

Staining the heart with darkness

A poison that turns away gladness

Bitter as gall

Stealing joy and defeating happiness

It makes the eyes see things darkly

Replacing peace with bitterness and anger

Beauty with ugliness and disdain

It eats away – little by little – hope for tomorrow

Fearing that tomorrow will only bring more. . .


Lonely Tonight

      Thank you for such kind words Kamalesh, and for the votes. It is not often that words can describe feelings, but when they come. . . I write them.

      Thank you for the read and comment Rochelle. Reaching out in a time of loneliness is definitely the key. The world is full of some very lonely people, many of which, allow their loneliness to swallow them up.

      It is a heartbreaking expression of feeling alone. We can always reach out. Others may be feeling the same emotion. There are caring people everywhere. Wishing you a blessing.
