Loneliness is a Sly Poison

Loneliness is a sly poison.

It creeps over your body like an oil slick on the ocean,

Slowly engulfing every pore, quietly penetrating your heart,

Permeating your inner core, your very being.

It leaves you feeling cold and empty inside,

Isolated, out of touch with others,

Passionately wanting to reach out to someone,

But you are choked out, unable to do so.

ur heart cries out with pain, and no one listens.

Loneliness is paralyzing.

As the busy world goes rushing by

You continue to go through the motions,

But you are disconnected, unable to relate.

Your sorrow is impenetrable.

Your spiral of despair begins to gain speed,

Life looks dismal and bleak.

I want this insidious poison to leave me

But it hangs on, a dull deep ache,

That screams in my head.

Searching

Walking down empty streets with an empty heart,
searching, seeking ,with an almost animal lust and desperation
some form of human contact,
a friendly smile,
a helping hand,
a sign of caring,
a sign that I even exist in this cold, harsh land,
walking, walking, no destination,
walking, walking, empty heart,
deep sorrow,
angry, hurtful tears flow freely from a well of emptiness,
deep within a ravaged soul,
crying out loudly, silently,
for love, for comfort,
but no one comes, ever,
I am so, so
lonely.

My Home

As black as black in the night
As dark as a blinded sight
More ravaged than a lady of the night
Some see it as a terrible fright
However, I call it home
To oppressed to be seen
By thoughts of what could have been
Wondering why again and again
Felling like this it must be a sin
However, I call it home
Hiding behind fake smiles and lies
Afraid to release these ties
Ties that bind me to these lies
Never ending circle of my fate, makes me cry
However I call it home
My home is in a place most won’t go
Many just don’t want to know
About all the pain and sorrow
Feeling alone, but can never show
However it IS my home

Juan

Loneliness

Life evades us,
Our secret sorrow.
No one knows us,
Except to borrow.
Love beyond our grasp,
Ire a hated friend.
Never will we gasp,
Enraptured love’s end.
Soon our end is known,
Silently alone.

Ebb and Flood

The waves of the sea
come and go
Waves of sorrow

The evening falls
like a curtain
Once you were mine
and you don’t know me

No longer then
and then
was a milligramme
of precious time

Drop in eternity
vanished
like a breath
like a wave
that took you
and love
away
from me
