This Wretched Loneliness

12 years of marriage, two wonderful kids, then he breaks my heart.
Unable to understand, unable to cope, I decide that we must part
The misery was lifted and a sudden rush of freedom felt within
A new desire to achieve the goals that I couldn’t when with him
As time moves on I find myself going through the motions of life
Not with the vigour that I expected but slow and forced and grim
I realise that I’m not used to living all alone
A year later the loneliness gnaws inside my bones
An admirer may come and bring light into my life but it fades so quickly
the moment they go. Never knowing when I’ll see them next
If it’s soon then that’s great, If they’ve something better to do then its
wretched
This is not living, its existing at best
What I really need is a partner to share my life, thoughts and burdens.
Two people encouraging each other, loving each other and sacrificing for each
other
The kids are here to keep me busy all day
But as night sets in there is nothing to say
Because no one is here, no one to listen, no one today
No one tonight
so I’ll just pin my hopes on tomorrow.

Loneliness

 Light is dark and one,
 It's song is un-sung.
 It's own fate it has sealed.
 The wounds it bears has never healed.

 Walks alone does he,
 Perhaps he's alot like me,
 Blinded by confusion and frustration.
 For it never sees the light before night sets.

 It carries on with eyes wide shut,
 In a mindless rut.
 Feeling rotten to the core,
 Waiting for the day, when it's pain is no more.....

                         -"Lady Wolenczak"-

Heart into Heart

Light into Light
Darkness into Darkness
Mind into Mind
Soul into Soul

Feelings hidden
Emotions concealed
Fortress after fortress
Defence of the heart

Shrouded thoughts
Veil of secrecy
Game after game
Unknown to the world

Twisted and tortured
Desperately seeking
Time after time
Wings of refuge

Light into Light
Darkness into Darkness
Self into Self
Heart into Heart

regarding how to interpret “Heart into Heart”

I wrote “Heart into Heart” during a period of time in December 2005 when I was feeling very small and alone in this world. I would go and watch a sad movie all on my own and then come home, sit on my bed and look out through the bedroom window while listening to sad songs. I don’t quite know where my loneliness came from, but I guess I woke up one day, realized that my best friend had died three years ago, that people were losing their humanity, and that I had given up trying to make a difference because the world couldn’t care less. Since that period, I have recovered from my utter depression, but still feel that dull ache of loneliness on a regular basis. The poem is generally free for the readers to interpret it and all the better if they can identify themselves with that state of despair and alienation. I just want to let all those who read the poem know that they’re not alone in feeling lonely and that they loneliness only serves to make them stronger emotionally and spiritually. I hope that all the lonely souls out there will be able to fill the void spaces in them like I managed to, but never forget the tug of loneliness at the heartstrings so that they can look back and see how far they’ve come and how much they’ve grown and matured.

Loneliness

I’m sitting here alone.
In this empty room
which keeps on getting emptier.
Only the light from the street is shining,
And then a loud call for help,
And everything turns black.

I’m sitting here alone
In this small room,
It keeps getting smaller.

I try thinking of something or someone.
But nothing comes to my head,
I’m alone…

I’m sitting here alone in this dark room,
It keeps on getting darker.
Nobody is home
I feel so alone.

I go out on the street,
I stand alone.
I see the long street,
It keeps on getting longer.
It’s a dead street,
Which keeps on dying.
A silent street. A lonely street.

Nothing surrounds me;
No sound, no smell, no sight.
…Nothing…

A world once filled with hate and death,
Now gone.
It’s gone and it’s left us alone.
Me and my loneliness.

Breath of Darkness

It never seems that i’ll get a break
from the sadness that fills my life
always falling even further than before
when i thought i couldn’t drowned any more
gasping for air I search to find my soul
surrounded by nothing and reaching for something
but there is no search light to help me see
maybe it’s because there is nothing there for me
loneliness seems to be the only thing in store for me

I’m drifting through the sea of darkness
drowning and clawing out at nothingness
dreaming of better days that never come
remembering past lives that came undone
unglued and lost pieces of a puzzle
a picture of a perfect life fades away

I sleep and i dream of nightmares
to wake up to a living hell
surrounded by mistakes and lies i tell
myself it will be ok even though
I know that nothingness will evoke my
soul
again

a life preserver is nowhere in sight
so i take a deep breath of darkness
and i drowned to feel something
