Loneliness - Poem by Melissa Starr

loneliness is a curse,
a demon is the dark,
it casts over you like a shadow,
and leaves behind it's mark
it suufocates and strangles,
and cuts you wide open.

no-one can ever hear,
the little voice that has just spoken
you're trodden on,
and left behind.

why does life seem so unkind?
no-one listens, no-one cares,
it's more than one little soul can bear.

the hurt, the crying and the pain,
you can barely speak,
it drives you insane.
why do i fly solo?
why am i alone?
why am i transparent?
why can't my life be shown....
