Loneliness (free verse poem)

[Silence]

No one to turn to

In shock

At the world.

No one to laugh with

To cry with

To lie with…

[Noise]

In the city

But no one

Knows you.

You’re another face

Ignored

Unseen

Unrecognised…

[Staring]

In the mirrored glass

With a stranger

Staring back at you.

stranger on your face

Living your life

Ruining your heart…

[Seeing]

Your life

Pass you by

As others ‘carry on’.

But at night you can’t hide

the truth

The fear

The loneliness…
