Lonely by Janice Mikesell

LONELY-

SURROUNDED BY FAMILY AND FRIENDS

OR SITTING IN THE DARK ALL ALONE

CHATTING ON FACEBOOK OR

TALKING ON THE PHONE

I FEEL AN ACHE IN MY HEART AND

DEEP IN MY STOMACH TOO

I WONDER WHY I ALWAYS

FEEL SO BLUE

 

I FEEL ISOLATED

I FEEL DESPONDENT

AND THE PRESCRIPTIONS NEVER REALLY

MAKE IT BETTER

OFTEN ALL THAT HELPS IS TO WEEP

AS I WRITE

A POEM OR A LETTER

 

MENTAL ISOLATION AND EMPTINESS

PLAGUE SO VERY MANY PEOPLE

SADLY IT NEVER GOES AWAY

NO MATTER WHAT WE TRY

SOMETIMES ALL YOU CAN DO IS

SIT ALONE AND CRY
