Loneliness Poem by cheryl davis miller


Rating: 5.0

A shudder running up my spine
without reason nor any rhyme
a constant process I confess
reminder of my loneliness.

Where are the answers I once knew
where are the friendships I thought true?
Hands to hold, and ears to listen
just be there, a simple mission.

As I have been in seasons past
to comfort, console, act steadfast
to seek for explanations, ' why? '
to tend the wounds and balm apply.

This loneliness I cannot bear
I'm reaching out, no one is there
so I begin to then withdraw
attempting to become so small

 I don't feel loneliness at all.

I hear your thoughts. Fortunately I enjoy my own company and have written, Alone But Not Lonely There are so many social groups from gardening, writing and walking. Powerful poetry. Thank You
