And I am Traveling Alone Again

And I am Traveling Alone Again

And I am traveling alone again
Down in this busy road of hopes and terror
I think the heavens wanted to cry for me
Because when I leave, no one will wait for me

My vision is fading through the dust of this endless road
As the welcoming air of this unknown place kissed my cheecks
There is a vacuum in my heart that I wanted to fill
I am continually seeking for an unknown thing

And I am traveling alone again
While these lovers in front of me are cuddling
I fully embraced the art of aloneness
While hearing their laugher in this unsteady and speedy vehicle

My heart wanted to know
When to break and when to take a risk
With these endless whispers of love feed my ears
I know now what I'm lacking
I am traveling alone again

Oh Lora, you made my day so happy with your words. You were right, it is better to be alone than to be in a wrong relationship. You know, I was madly in love with my first love but I let him go, I was too young and have a lot of dreams and I can see that our world are seems to be different, we were both a threat to each other, our family don't it, so we stopped it. And now, he has his own family and I am happy for him, while I stay alone and studying. Thank you Lora ❤ I've shared things I shouldn't have haha.

Your poem beautifully expresses the feelings of being alone in a world where there are so many people who are involved in romantic relationships. It really captures the feeling of being isolated and in a situation where most people feel uncomfortable. And your poem also raises an important question. Is being alone such a bad thing or is it society that makes us feel that way? Perhaps being alone does have its good points too. It is certainly better to be alone than to be in an abusive relationship or to be married to someone who you are not really in love with. I really enjoyed your poem, Crezyl. Keep up the wonderful work!

Norway's a perfect getaway, but I haven't been there, that's too far from us, maybe soon. Thank you for reading my poem Eric. God bless you!

Alone and lonely are not even related. This beautiful piece stirs my mind, thank you. Backpacking Scandinavia area, my companions wanted to stay in Oslo. Some place called Svalbard where the sun don't go down. All alone. Fantastic. Had they come I would not have stories to tell. I think they made it to Bergen Norway.

More thanks.

This is super cool. Let me reflect and come back.

Brenda, you always get the feeling that I wanted to shout. I am overly thankful for your presence and words. I keep on praying to God too to help me forget this, but I understand why it lingers. Blessings Brenda ❤ thank you always ❤

It is so hard to see yourself alone in a crowd where others are in couples.

But even though there are teardrops there will be a silver lining...the feeling will disappear.

There us a vacuum in your heart you are trying to fill...it may take some time, but you will find what you want.

Great write. Keep up the good work.

Carolyn, thank for your heartfelt words. I truly understand it. I really appreciate sharing part of your life, I am very happy that you have understood the message that I wanted to relay. Don't worry Carolyn, I am kind of flexible, I think I can be open for everything. God bless you ❤

Crezyl,

I rarely travel alone these days, but when I do I find that I am much more aware of my surroundings. I can stop and appreciate a nice picture on the wall at the airport, without someone feeling like I'm slowing him down. There are benefits, but I understand that your poem is more about the heart being alone. I've experienced that, too, when my first husband died suddenly. It takes some adjustment, but as they say, life goes on. Be open to whatever is in store for you.

Peace my friend.

I hope that time will come as fast as it could. This heart is hard to manage ms Dora. But honestly, I do enjoy traveling alone, it makes me appreciate things that I am seeing.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on December 16, 2019:

This poem reminded me of when traveling alone paid off. Everybody else on standby had a companion, but there was only one seat left. I got that seat though others were ahead of me on the roster. A little joy now and then will soothe that broken heart.

Crezyl (author) from Philippines on December 16, 2019:

Thank you so much Lora! very much appreciated ❤

Lorna Lamon on December 16, 2019:

I can sense the feelings of being alone within this poignant poem. Beautifully expressed Crezyl.

Crezyl (author) from Philippines on December 15, 2019:

Clive! I don't know what's the absent, I just feel that there is something wrong. But thank you, next time I'll take a bus, I'll think of your comment XD

Clive Williams from Jamaica on December 15, 2019:

Does the heart travel alone? Or just the body. Let my mind enjoy your company.

Crezyl (author) from Philippines on December 15, 2019:

That's deep Manatita but I believe too. ❤ Thank you!

manatita44 from london on December 15, 2019:

Nice. Slow down. Give them more time and let them mature like a vintage wine. That would enhance their excellence. Peace.

Thank you so much Linda ❤

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on December 14, 2019:

Your poem includes some powerful descriptions. I enjoyed reading it very much.

Crezyl (author) from Philippines on December 14, 2019:

Thank you Ruby! I just experienced that yesterday. Kind of traumatizing XD

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on December 14, 2019:

Traveling alone is no fun, esp. if the couple seated across the isle are cuddling. Another poem that was fun to read.

Crezyl (author) from Philippines on December 14, 2019:

Am I? I don't know John hahahaha. I like to travel too, I like the feeling it sends to me. But I am a student, so I don't have much time to go around, I am bound in our school haha. But hearts to you John! Thank you! You've been there from the very start. ❤

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on December 14, 2019:

Oh, Crezyl, you are quickly becoming a very popular poet here at HubPages and no wonder when you write poems like this. I love it. When I was younger I used to like travelling alone...not so much anymore.
