Poems of the Lonely

Tag Archives: breath


I thought you would stand by me forever

but, we were never meant to be together

so many days have passed since we have parted

I was the one left broken hearted

so many nights I’ve spent being lonely

Thinking about you, my only

Nights and days have broken into years,

while i drowned myself in my own tears

O, how slowly the moon wanes

How my heart pains,

My concerto soothing what’s left of my sane mind

Even that i have left behind

No i lay waiting for death

The day i will draw my last breath


by Faudia Ramjohn


You take a deep breath,
And wait slowly for your death.
The roads that you have taken,
A choice mistaken
And you have reached the end,
You can no longer make amends.
The loneliness creeps up on you,
Sucking the life out of you slowly.
But what do you do?
Who do you turn to?
There is no one, the effect of your mistakes.

Basically when I wrote this everything in my life was upside down and I had no one to turn to, so I was about to kill myself. Luckily I didn’t. A friend came along in time. But that’s another poem for another email.
