Lonliness ........a poem

Google image - "Of this , I can only imagine "

To live through this plague that most
survive
Is to arrive at the end of our lives
never truely alive

She stands her back to the wall
in a crowd that's so busy
And wonders at the buzz of life that
makes her spin dizzy

And me ...... I 'm forever alone even
though its a lonely place
Yet seeking a friend just like me
I'll know her by her face

What ailment is this that eats away at
our very being
Ghosts of us all ......we're here yet
no ones seeing

The lady asks me "
what is the meaning of lonliness"
tell me tell me please
All I can tell you is your smile and your
touch is but a tease

You too will leave when you see just
how alone I can be
But before you go ......know this
I have already set you free


Inspired by the beautiful .hubber .......DDE...

      Hi Ed, this is beautiful and melancholic, so sad to arrive at the end of one's life, never truly alive, speaks of a loneliness to deep to contemplate. Yet; there is a yearning to be loved and understood. Why do some of us get so lonely, "Maybe every'body in the whole damn world is scared of each other" Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men.

      Wonderful poetry.

      I agree that this "is beautiful and melancholic." People are hardly ever alone as they might feel, though. But, there is the matter of allowing oneself to be loved when others reach out.

      Aw, very beautiful and heartfelt, Ed

      We must not isolate ourselves, but reach out to others in love, and then we may know of that love in return and that loneliness will retreat.

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper

      What beautiful poem. So delicate. So sad but, in the end it's so beautiful. It is a well read poem as well as well as really well detailed. Also, very emotional. I voted up.
