Poem: A Lonely Existence

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

poem-a-lonely-existence

It must be an awful feeling
to tear people down,
to kick them to the curb
after loving so passionately.

To have a need
to make someone suffer,
to make yourself feel better
for the wrongs you committed.

So lost within your own world,
pleasing only yourself,
with no true feelings for anyone,
must be one lonely existence.

"Without Me" by Halsey

Thank you, Sunshine.

I am happy to have you read my work.

Sorry if it brought back any sad memories.

Thank you, Lorna.

I do believe you have a good point that there must be something lacking in them.

I wonder if they truly enjoy being alone?

Very emotional, it makes me think of some people close in my life, now all gone.

I felt when I read this poem Brenda that when people treat others in this cruel way, it is never about the other person, rather something that is lacking in them. Sadly they very often do end up alone, and your poem highlights this very well.
