Lonely - Poem by Elizabeth Jacqueline Mpanga

Often am lonely,
I am lonely even when am in a crowd
I am lonely
Lonely because my heart beats so separately
I am lonely
Lonely in the dark because I feel darker than the darkest night

Often am lonely
Lonely when I speak and no one understands what I mean
I am lonely
Often I stay awake at night and let my mind wonder off
Wonder off into the deepest recesses of my heart
And there I find no one there but me and my raw feelings,

Often I am lonely
Lonely when I cry because no one actually feels the pain I am feeling
I am lonely,
Lonely when I speak the most because I only do it to fill up the silence
I am lonely
Lonely because I am scared, scared that I have no idea what I am looking for

Often I am lonely,
Lonely when I cry because no one will really understand what my fears are
I am lonely,
Lonely mostly because it’s so hard to let my guard down and let anyone in………
