Loneliness


Loneliness, what a shameful companion you are
Days you fill with emptiness, yet nights are just as hollow
From within I am but a vacuum
Of joy I know not
Of fun I know not
Of friendship I know not

They are but distant memories, just snippets of the past
A life I once had, where I was happy once upon a time
Oh but how I wish for it to be still
I yearn for happiness
I yearn for amusement
I yearn for companionship

Yet it is not to be, a distant memory it remains
The pleasure of life for me is not meant it appears
Loneliness it seems, is to be my ever companion
To fill my days with emptiness
To strip me of simple joy
To leave me aching for more from life as I know it

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
