A Loneliness - Poem by Winston Edgar Hall

Such a brutal feeling can subtly
Bring about this painful yearning
That simultaneously bonds with
An obviously blunt freedom, which
Quietly cultivates my sense of
Living, while also simultaneously


Demonstrating my flaws:

As a man.

As a person.

A person who's ne'er-ending
Experiences that grow daily
Provide this confidence that
Sums with hope in order to
Create a character who is
Finally ready and willing to
Look deep within himself and
Regard without negligence.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A Loneliness describes a time in my life that was very difficult for me, and therefore it is very special to me in a unique way. It came to me in a time where I faced an identity crises a good while after experiencing a very traumatizing split from a person with whom I had been romantically involved. Romantic relationships, the ones where the loves grows out of control and no one is prepared for what will happen, are beautiful in so many ways, and in some ways detrimental to who you once were. Thus, having gone through such a relationship, one begins to eventually question everything - or be cast out into the void so to speak. At such point, I had the option to either accept and work on the loneliness that burned within me, or deal with it in unhealthy ways.
The intention behind A Loneliness (as one might imagine) was to convey a certain morose attitude. The morose attitude, from the way I perceive it, is not always negative, given that I have grown as a person in magnitudes unimaginable. Though the morose time in my life was not necessarily negative, it was one of pain and growth. This is the ultimate message in A Loneliness.
