'Alone! ' I cried

'Alone! ' I cried again.
'Alone I am with me!
Lonely in a world of mist
Alone, I reach to touch your wrist
And see if I am thee.’

To be alone beside a soul
Afloat, adrift; an empty ghoul
Alone in woe; the yearning flesh
To fill a thin, contorted mesh
Diffuse atop an icy floor, alone.

So much alone in fact, I lack
The tonal vibrancy of life:

I am a song without a tune
alone;
A greying sky in June
alone;

The blueness of a sullen moon
– waning in a starless night–
alone;

Coasting down a weedy pass
alone;
The only image in the glass
alone;

To meet a certain heavy fate
– to turn and shut the knurly gate–

…alone.

    I am a song without a tune
    alone;
    is a shriek of the soul. It just touched my heart. Really, nothing is more agonizing than being alone as Mother Teresa says:
    Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.
    This is why the thing many people are most worried about is just being alone.
    Heart touching poem!

    I enjoyed reading this poem of solitude and isolation. So sad to see so many people writing about this very subject. But if emotion is the goal to portray, then I'm sure many people can feel your message in this finely crafted poem.
