Lady Loneliness

I am the ghost of heartaches past
  I'm love's dark contrast

          That empty seat
            Beside you when you eat

                   The tear stains on your pillow case
                     I'm that new wrinkle on your face.

I am the gremlin of "What if?"
  If you catch my drift

          Who's biggest theme
             Is to haunt all your dreams

                   I'm that loud echo in your life
                    That constant nagging extra strife.

I am that cold spot in your bed
  I'm words left unsaid

          I'm anger won
            I'm promises undone
                   I'm that thing left to chance
                     I'm Lady Loneliness..... 
                       Would you care to dance?

                                                Timothy I. Brumley

    Ah yes, all the nagging little doubts that creep into our lives and leave us lonely. How well we dance with this partner. Can you tell I'm addicted? Will be back this eve to read more. Hope your day is perfect!

    NO!!! I do not want to dance with loneliness...maybe with solitude, though. Smiles. Congratulations on your poem being featured this week, Timothy. Lovingly, Dane Ann

    whoa! this is loneliness personified. this is my main struggle in life, and I'd describe such a plight just like this. very well written.

    Ha, I love that ending. Fantastic write. Enjoyed every word.

    Intriguing poem here. The personified 'Lady Lonileness seems brash enough to go through a forlorn description of herself, but still asks for a dance in the end anyway. Well done. Chris.
