Loneliness is the pill I was given,

Swallowed it down with no fucks given,

But now I can feel it burning a hole in me,

Hallowed body resting in defeat,

Suffocating, I can hardly breathe,

But no one's there to help set me free.

Mentally whirling in endless emotion,

Trying to find some sort of graceful devotion,

To open my eyes and make me fucking see,

That this loneliness addiction is only temporary,

But if I fall too deep I'll find myself buried,

And alone in the dark where there's no place for me.

I have this distinct feeling Reaper, that there are many people here on Booksie who share your sentiments. In fact, everywhere I go, if I take the time to notice, there are always instances. Hang in there and keep writing. Good poem.

Thanks, Penny with your kind words. This poem was written for other people who share the words expressed in the poem. I am doing good, but I do tend to write poems that others can relate to. i just have that connection because I have been through it in the past. But thank you again for reading and your words, I promise I am doing good though.

Thank you for voicing this. I know many are feeling it this year. Personally this year has given my hermit self the best reason to be a hermit. I hope you are doing well.

Thank you for reading and commenting. I am sorry that this year hasn't been the best for you and I hope the next one holds something in store for many along with you. I am doing good but I do feel that there are those out there who need to know they aren't the only ones who knows what they are going through. Nobody is truly alone. Thank you again.
