Poem: Alone In Agony

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

Poem Summary

Alone in agony is about a woman who has teardrops as she looks in a box of pictures she grabs from the closet. She doesn't know how she can make it through one more day when she doesn't know how to live alone. Her head aches like it might explode as she wishes she could wake up from this nightmare.

Alone In Agony

A teardrop falls from her eyes
as she grabs the box from the closet floor,
hands trembling, she removes the pictures
for one more look
at the love still chained to her heart.

Wondering how she can make it through
one more day
with no idea how to live alone,
when she cannot set herself free
from the one who holds her heart.

Her head aches in agony
like it might explode,
her fingers gently touch the photos
remembering the moment her world fell apart,
wishing she could wake up
to make this nightmare disappear.
