Alone Again


I feel so worn out
I'm so alone
I know that my circumstances don't condone my actions
but I cant seem to see any other solutions
all my dreams are just diminishing illusions of a future I was never meant to have
I don't even know what pain I feel anymore
this ardor within me is as plain and overt as the cure
But I cant help my hand slipping off of the door to consolation
In a way I find joy in this sick isolation
Im on cloud four cuz I never got directions to any other floor but this one
and Im stuck here, on this god forsaken planet and theres nothing left of me bt ribbons of skin and bone
A cold cut razor across an already open sore
My wounds run deeper than the problems I try to force out of my memories and recollections
the challenges your god has sent me are so much more than I can endure
And as I peek out of this window I see your better than before
while I am stuck here
holding this blade across my throat, screaming ' DARE ME'
But you wont
cuz you don't hear me anymore
I never believed in you but god save me
or slay me but do not leave me here
alone again.

    A very impressive and heart touching poem
    I never believed in you but god save me
    or slay me but do not leave me here
    alone again.
    These lines show you are a believer, sometimes we complain God but have no alternate but to ask Him to cure our sickness and to heal our wounds. (Report) Reply

    Dear Lucy, How I thank you for your words. AS this was written in 2012 I would really like to know how you are going now. I too like Kelly could really feel your emotion. May you be seeing light in this new day. (Report) Reply

    pain of lonely ness expressed so well. Dark side of mind inflicting pain upon itself against the better judgement of faith and reasoning. (Report) Reply

    So dark a dark space that this takes one too and i think most of us visit there once or twice but eventually when least expected the sun does shine again, i found it really interesting you chose cloud four, obviously not even half way to cloud nine, where oh where did the nine originate and how significant does that make your chosen figure. The release of internal pain by external inflicted wounds is one i do understand but wish i didnt... i so hope you come out the other side soon, i really do...tyvm karen (Report) Reply

    EXTREMELY WELL WRITTEN, a voice from the inner dark side of existence, isolation (Report) Reply

    Your words Lucy, bring out such emotion in me, to be affected by someones else's words, I have felt this feeling before, and it like living hell, not knowing where to go, who to turn to, and yes, death is almost more attractive... but if you read my write, called - Silent Scream, and Climbing out of the abyss... and The Ghost Within Me... you'll know I speak the truth, and I understand. Blah, Blah, Blah... sorry for rambling on, This is a Deep, Heartfelt Write, and You have penned your emotions on this note... for all to see. Very Brave, and Such a Great Write.
    -Kelly. (Report) Reply

    A sentimental tone! What a genuinely drawn expression! Beautiful, though the feeling you are drawing is so saddening! Being alone in this world of...... is so heavy! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
