Sometimes I talk to no one at all,
There's no one to have fun with anymore,
So, I have conversations with the wall,
Only the wind comes knocking on my door.

How can one be so alone,
I have no one that I can send a letter,
And no one to talk with on the phone,
If I had, my life would be so much better.

There is no one to share my feelings with,
All I want is one good friend,
These days a true friend seems like a myth,
A person who will be there to the end.

A friend that I could sit beside,
Someone with a gentle hand to hold,
A person with whom my secrets I'd confide,
Someone who's warm when days are cold. 

I wish there were someone I could give my heart,
Someone who will not tell me a lie,
One special person that wouldn't tear it apart,
A friend to be there when I cry.

As I'm trying not to shed a tear,
All I can do is sit alone at home,
And so it goes on, year after year,
And there's nothing to do but write this poem.

    Thank you very much for your kind words, Jan.... I've been lucky enough to find a few good friends right here on the Soup. They can't exactly hold my hand, but it is still nice to know that they are here if I need someone to talk to.... Hugs :)

    Thank you very much for the kind congrats, Brenda!.... This poem was based on my real feelings, although the emotions were expressed much more dramatically here.... I am very thankful for the Soup, because I've made a few good friends here!

    Beautifully rhymed!! You reached the center of my heart with this one.... I really felt the need to Scream, ''I want to be your friend.... Nice going, sweetheart..... Jake

    Your poem exudes so succinctly from the heart that its a delight to peruse Kelly. I really enjoyed this one. I think its rare to find someone who writes similar to me, no wonder I take such fondness to your work. I've penned one called ''Friend Indeed'' awhile aback, this poem reminded me of that for some weird reason though the two is different in meanings portrayed therein. Keep them rolling dear Kelly.

    Kelly, such a sad and longing poem you have written here. I gave up on friends years ago, when I found that they mainly used my generosity, but contributed nothing to my life. I love my own company; A wonderful read Kelly, thank you for sharing...Peter

    All that was rather impersonal and distant. I really hope you do find that special friend you are looking for; even if you already have one.~ I noticed two little errors which will be a snap to fix. Verse four; "who's", and verse three, there is an extra "s" on "these".

    First off I must say what a brilliant job you did with the ABAB rhymes. It's always tricky to keep the subject and words flowing smoothly, both of which you did. Next I shall congratulate you on including a picture of the friend you want to have; in my opinion, this makes it so much better than just a complaint of loneliness. In other words, that balances the negative with a little positive, which I think is always good. Too much of one or the other never seems realistic.

    oh my Lord! are you my mirror image or my hidden conscious how you almost read my mind! word by word,everything just like mine are you lonely just like me? this is crazy but also what i myself am going through

    I've been there... It's time to realize your not alone! There are others out there just like you! Waiting for that special friend to talk to. With a gentle hand to hold... :o) A very sad, but very nice write!
