Delores’ Sagacity

O heavy heart that aches with despair

Lost, despondent, and left to die

O the soul that concedes to the pain

Inside of me that yet abides

Where is the joy that this life was to bring?

Days I would escape memories of the forgotten?

Hope is gone and darkness to swallow me

 Like grass that blankets the earth

 Joy, a facade; a mask to hide the plights

Of unrelenting torment

Wondering in the dark

Nightmares transmute reality

Seasons unchanging

The hand that is bitterness

Hold only misery and sorrow

Wielding its sword to fell

Every instrument of suffering

But, alas weary

Fatally wounded

I am, undone

Delores Collins: This poem was written by me in Jan 2007.

I Sit Alone

Smiles you always see, but they are not real You think that I am happy, but I never am.

You all have friends, ones who are special, I know people, but they don’t know me,

they know the facade I sit and wonder, does anyone know?

Does anyone know how I feel inside

Can anyone see the pain I hide?

I sit alone,

I watch you with your friends and families.

And I wonder, what is it like?

You talk to me and I talk to you,

but none of it means anything.

We all go home, and once again I am alone.

Do you know that I am alone?

Do you think that I go home and am not alone?

Do you even care?

You all think that I am happy, no concerns in the world.

I wish this were true.

I have no one.

No one to talk to.

No one to sit and laugh with.

I sit alone.

Won’t anyone help me?

Won’t anyone come and break this loneliness?

Break the silence of my life?

I don’t know what to do, where to go.

I just don’t want to be alone.

No more.
