Lonely Soul

A well-worn path
of one lonely soul,
a solitary journey that
begins to take a toll.

A lonely soul that
was left an empty heart,
on one darkened day
when true love did depart.

A soul left lonesome
to live a painful life,
where a scar remains
like a cut from a knife.

Dark days turn to night
teardrops falling like rain,
no umbrella can shield
perennial tears of pain.

For a lonely lost soul
no comfort can be found,
there is no more love
when no light is around.

    What a lovely poem this is Kelly! yet it is so sad; feels as if you're experiencing this in real life. But you can still find a new light to ease the ache and brighten your tomorrows. Congratulations. // paul

    Hi Kelly, a beautiful yet sad poem. Let's start at the end, there shall always be light at the end of your dark tunnel Kelly, for I or someone else Is always there when needed. Whether your heart does sing In joy or sorrow It does sing. You have known much pain my Friend and believe me, I truly wish It were not so. You use your own pain In a constructive way, In your writes, you paint such excellent visions. The light shines. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Mike. It is nice to know that I have good friends like you, who will always be there for me!... I do wish that my life had been an easier one, but when I found poetry a lot of that weight was lifted from me. Because, just writing my thoughts and expressing my feelings set me free. I think poetry can be very therapeutic, and I know that I am better for it.

    I enjoyed reading this Kelley. I am very happy things are better for you now. I think in order to write with depth one has to have experienced some pain or heartbreak in life. A wonderful introspective piece!

    Thank you for stopping by to read this poem, Connie. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I agree with you, to write with depth it has to come from true experience. Otherwise, the words just don't seem real. :)

    Kelly Why are you trying to make me sad tonight. Bad girl. LOL Words of sorrow and pain that made my heart break. Loneliness can leave you broken in more ways than one. You will NEVER be lonely with me around. Thanks for the wonderful comment on my I'm A Horsie poem. Yes, I did put it in Chans contest. Hugs

    Hi Kelly, nice work, deep and dark to read...I absolutely know the feeling here. This is something I really empathize with. However I kind of pulled myself from that lonely lost feeling, I kept myself from the light out of stubbornness. Kelly, I imagine this is not you... truly Thank you for sharing...Linda

    When I read sad poems I really like to feel the emotions in it because I've written a few myself. This piece really touched me Kelly, I felt what you felt.
