Isolation - Poem by Phil Soar

When you sit in isolation, and your thoughts are just a mess,
When no-one else can understand the hurt or sheer distress;
When everywhere around you, everything does not relate,
When you feel a pain so deep that nothing else can compensate:
When you feel there is no place to go, and nothing else to do,
Remember that there’s always someone else who feels like you.

Withdrawn, the lowest point seems almost lost and no-one cared,
Not true of course, as there are those whose memories are shared;
Beyond tomorrow, there’s no future, there’s no end in sight,
No Sun to fill the cold days, and no moon to fill the night;
The silence may be deafening, and even darkness screams,
You must live out the future, or, why did you have those dreams? .

Each day, the trial may seem like it will last for all of time,
The jurors listen carefully, but cannot read your mind;
The verdict cannot ease the pain, but still it is delivered,
It isn’t what you want to hear, and makes the stillness shiver;
Pick up the pieces carefully, don’t lose life’s jigsaw part,
You know that there is always that one space inside your heart.

Your mind may not recover, and your dreams may lose their spark,
But please don’t sit in isolation, it’s very lonely in the dark.
