A place still lies
Lonely and untouched
Every night it cries
Seeking for its walls to be patched

A place still lies
But dead in its self
With broken memories
And an empty shelf

I struggle to find myself
In the midst of all the strife
But above me a cloud of darkness
So thick, full of sadness

The place will still lie
But not utter a cry
It shall continue to die
Because no one asked why

Great poem. One thing: pls replace sadness with emptyness in your stanza because of two reasons: first- the title needs to dwell a line, second- a cloud of dakness explains the fact fo sadness itself. Beautiful lyric.

A poem that expresses what most passed through...Sometimes loneliness strikes so severely, yet we continue to search and find the right place....Hoping you'd have more nice days...Sara...

Aw, this is so sad and lonely. It is a feeling many of us have been through. Your last line really got to me. Very well expressed. Wishing you happier days. Love, Shar
