Poems of the Lonely

Tag Archives: tears

Hoping, but Always Denied

Too often so isolated

Abandoned in a void of pain and despair

Without a sense of being wanted

By anyone at all out there

 

A desire for companionship so strong

Striving to embrace some future shining sun

Yet no one lovely did ever come along

That would want and provide one

 

No one to call upon in times of great need

Like a single bent tree in strong winds having grown

A rose bed of love now just full of weeds

Never really having been properly sown

 

No one special with which to share wealth obtained

An absence of kind words and a warm embrace

A shirt dark, wet and stained

By trails of tears falling from one’s face

 

A dark figure of dread casting their shadow,

Over one’s existence and place

Marching with time’s relentless flow,

Withering away one’s will at pace

 

All from a sad and lonely heart

Hollow

By Raven

It is a Hollow I cannot fill,

I pine for it,

But I do not belong, anywhere.

I watch groups of friends interact,

Smile, laugh, kiss, dance,

It hurts so badly as I realise want to be a part of it so much,

I want to laugh without a care in the world,

I want to have days where we get together and just talk about the things we love.

I want days where we just mess about and do nothing,

I want to be able to give and receive hugs and kisses,

I want to be capable of love, of trust,

But I understand that, it is not to be.

I am always looking in from outside,

Standing on the edge smiling pathetically to myself,

Living vicariously through those that I watch,

Spending evenings imagining myself as a part of those groups,

Tears coursing down my cheeks as I smile dreaming of the things I can never have,

Taking a sadistic pleasure in gathering as many memories of those forbidden pleasures,

Of comfort, of happiness and love,

I cannot stop watching for fear of drowning in the depression of a realisation where I truly understand that I am denied the very things I spend my days viewing.

Alone I stand outside that dirty window peering in.

Even if I could gather up the courage to knock on the glass and ask to be let in, I would fall short.

Because in my world, although there is a window, there is certainly not….

A door.

 

Deafening Silence

Wide open space. The emptiness of my heart.

So much love, yet so far away. I’m alone.

Were it not for God’s unchanging love, I would have no reason to stay.

Who remembers me? Who is thinking of me at this very moment?

My tears come quietly…fall silently. They are my companions.

The ache in my chest. Memories of feeling love.

My friends don’t want me.

My love can’t be with me.

My family is a world away. No one needs me.

A husband and kids: a distant fantasy.

The sound of laughter in my home: a far away wish.

Who would come? Who wants my presence?

Am I lovable? Am I too weird?

I feel at home among the lonely;

Strangers who need me like I need them.

No one to talk to. God thank You for listening.

I walk alone.

The ones I love forget about me.

I don’t want to burden…or bother…

I only want interaction…true love.

I’ve been left and forgotten.

I want to go home. I miss my mom & dad & god-brother.

They love me. I need them NOW.

 

 

Chasing Suns

My poem is entitled Chasing Suns and I wrote it shortly after my girlfriend broke up with me… She was my first love and is still my only love… It’s almost been eight months since she left me and I’m still madly in love… It’s really no fun :-\ anyway, here is my poem.
i hope you find some meaning in my words.

Chasing Suns
by: Lee Mintz

There exists a home

in a land undefined

By word nor by sound

a lost page of blank line

And though I may dwell

in its spacious confine

It’s a torturous existence

without your home next to mine

This landscape bleeds emotion

pools raindrops obscene

It grows salted and withered

its wounds grow unseen

I froze fast in your fire

wandered lost in between

My sweet darling ember

and our horizon pristine

Darkness descends tearing sleepless asunder

bringing a beating heart still

An infant still lives fading faster toward slumber

under walls of concrete will

No one tear shall flow from this sorrow

chasing endless suns of sanguine spill

I now live lifeless life borrowed

keeping pace with harsh words

“the end, until…”

there it is
every single line has relation to something she and I did together, something she said to me, characteristics of her, or something that happened between us and i feel that this is my best poetic work to date. i hope you agree.

 

Broken Heart

I can’t take this anymore
Its tearing me up inside
Cause you wouldn’t tell me why
So you remained a constant thought throughout my days

I hate that you are doing this
I saw you do it before
I won’t let this happen to us
You can’t push me away

You have already torn my heart in two
The damage is done
Does this even hurt you
Or will this go right through

The loneliness I fear
Is starting to draw near
Can’t be sure how I will deal
Or how this loneliness will feel

All my hopes and dreams
Have been washed away
Into a rapid flowing red stream
Created by the bleeding of my broken heart

You said yourself we could last forever
And now you can’t even see us together
I do not blame you nor am I mad
For it was I who gave his heart with no shield

I talked about our future
Only because that’s where we were headed
We talked about our past
And realized why others didn’t last

I couldn’t tell you what the future would hold
You claimed to be afraid of the unknown
But I wasn’t given the chance to ease your fears
Which is why I have begun to shed these tears

I only want you to be happy
If you can’t be happy with me then I will have to respect that
I was afraid of my heart being broken and now it has come true
I just never thought the breaking of my heart would come from you
