This Loneliness Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

This Loneliness

Rating: 5.0

Dressed in red, the SOS of heartache, throbbing within my being.
Red, a reminder, passion's fire is now removed from my eyes.
Loneliness, I have no place to hide from its intrusion in my life,
It invades all the empty spaces.

Death's goodbye still echoes, loud!

A very beautiful and touching poem, with such a delicate balance of love, passion, sorrow and loneliness. None of these emotions will let one hide from the truth of reality, they are all part of the experience of loss. Very meaningful poem, fills the heart with emotion. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn

What a fantastic poem! I didn't read until afterwards about the challenge... a great idea but also the poem stands strong with or without knowing :)

Reading the reminder matters a lot. Having no place to hide from truth that amazes about the composition. Nice sharing.
