Single In The City - Poem by Sandra Martyres

The busy days roll by rather quickly
The evenings are a bit longer
Despite the omnipresent idiot box
The heaps of unread books and DVDs
Sometimes loneliness slips in
Surreptitiously through the door
Making the room a bit cloudy
Even the lamp in the corner
Begins to get dimmer and
Vision deteriorates as
Tears fall gently like
Tiny raindrops forming
A little pool on the floor
Being a single woman in a big city
Though safe is not always easy

    There are divergent views on being alone,

    Arnold - We mortal millions live alone
    Wordsworth - For oft when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude.

    But I appreciate the concerns of a single lady in a city penned with poetic fervor.

    Poetry is the best resort to overcome anxiety in the city alone! (Report) Reply
