Treasure Island

You... don't... want me...

(9-November-1994 / QLD)

A lonely girl


As a lonely girl,
I only want one thing
All I want,
Is to be seen

As a lonely girl,
I have not been many places
In my lonely life,
I have seen very few faces

As a lonely girl,
No one notices me
They just pass me by,
As if there is no one there to see

As a lonely girl,
I have changed my mind
Now what I want,
Is to end my own life

As a lonely girl,
The only one could change my lonely mind
Is someone I could trust,
Someone who is warm and kind

As a lonely girl,
I want someone to hold
Some who will love me,
And be there without being told

As a lonely girl,
This was all I wanted…

As a lonely girl,
I was disappointed…

    Hey Janay! what a great poetic power you have at this tender little age? You are a fund of great talent which very few will have at this age. Who said you are lonely? Our great Savior is with us always who cares for us more than any one else. Trust him. He is with you, me and all of us, always. Thanks for inviting me to read your cute poetry. God bless you.

    A sad poem well constructed but goes deep, life is challenge and we all get a punch below the belt... how about a real happy poem and get dancing regards

    You will only find this someone (a Mister Right for you) by not taking the exit reserved for failures.
    You are not a failure as even this little poem shows.

    I would not throw away talent and all other qualities you have and will be able to enjoy in times ahead, for what? Hell's Frying Pans?

    You live just an hour away from me, in one of the most uplifting and beautiful cities on this planet.
    If you want to, you can talk to me. Confidentially and without feeling 'bad ' about it.

    I am on Bribie.

    So young! Too young to feel this way. sometimes the people we know, make us feel the worst. Think of this: Your poems are read by dozens, hundreds and maybe thousands, that you don't know about. If one verse you write makes someone change their life for the better, look how much you accomplished? I gave you a 10 that was much deserved.Look at life with opened eyes, not sad eyes.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
