Poems of the Lonely

Loneliness

Hate, anger, frustration,

How does one survive?

Confusion, distraught, depression.

Why even be alive?

.

Screaming, running, sobbing,

Everyone is swarming.

Yelling, crying, dying.

Does someone really care?

.

I sit alone now, all by

Myself with no one else.

They’ve all left again for good,

And I am once again alone.

.

I only have friends when

They need a place to hide.

Does that make them love me?

“My basement’s always open. . .”

.

I sit alone again and cry,

For the friends I wish I had,

But will never see.

All I get are words, in threes.

.

They speak to me softly,

Worry in their faces.

Do they care? Or is

Their worry worthless?

.

It hurts at the end,

As we all know, but

After that we don’t

Know how to go.

.

Dante once said that sinners go

Where it is dark and dank,

And in the hot below,

Down where Hades rules.

.

But do we know

Where people go

After their loneliness

Has got to them.

.

Why stay here where it’s sad,

When you can live happy,

No longer alone,

No longer afraid.

Feelings

What do you do when your feelings are mixed up inside you
You try to be happy but inside your always blue
At times you’d like to cry but there’s people all about
So you hold it back and try not to pout
You try not to think of the bad times you had
And try to be happy but inside your always sad
You know exactly what you really want to say
But you can never get it out to this very day
It runs about in your head both day and night
And it doesn’t go away no matter how hard you fight
People ask “How are you” you say “good” what a lie
If they only knew you would really rather cry
No matter what you do it is always on your mind
And all the people around you are so happy and kind
You try everything but nothing seems to work
All that pain because of one little hurt
No one understands what you’re going thru now
You want to live a happy life but you don’t know how.
