Loneliness of the Soul Poem by Lilac Wine


Loneliness of the soul is a journey without a destination
A journey that one takes alone no hand to hold
Walking her distance but nothing in sight

    I like this poem, although it needs a little more work... and I think that it refers more to Solitude than to Loneliness (Report) Reply

    I was left wanting another verse or two to real nail the image.
    I wasn't completely convinced that loneliness has a horizon and really wanted you to make me feel it.
    Also the raging sea didn't automatically connect me to loneliness. If you are after this sense of tension between surface and deep though, you would have also brought it out in the first analogy - e.g. 'stamping out the journey'...
    Feels like a poem that can get even better with work... Nice one! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem. Loved reading it. For most of us horizon is a distant dream. Journey is all we are left with. 'I' the only companion of my journey. (Report) Reply

    fantastic poem...loneliness of soul is a desert without an oasis, a desert with vast miles of sand, sand, and nothing else... (Report) Reply

    Loneliness of the soul is like the ocean
    Blue and beckoning deceptively comforting
    Calm yet a torrent rages beneath her cool surface
    You see her horizon yet it’s unreachable

    A calm, cool, vast and deep poem filled with the feelings of nothingness, composed by a lonely soul.

    Lilac - Such a cool deep color, much like your poetry. The scent lingers in the air, on the skin, and in your heart.

    Thanks - Cheryl (Report) Reply

    This is such an insightful write, a feel good and think poem...Loneliness can actually phsically hurt and that's when we have to find something within our soul to hang on to......never easy to do.......You've said this so well......marci.xo (Report) Reply

    This is seriously cool, loneliness of the soul is sth bitter, yet undeniable. You really made my day by letting me know that we think alike...sure enough, great minds think alike...LOL

    The soul of the poet is often solitary. But, fortunately.here the world is listening to your song. And a very fine song it is. Take care.

    Warm regards,
