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.

"The Art Of Letting Go w/lyrics" by Mikaila

poem-alone-in-agony

A teardrop falls from her eyes
as she grabs the box from the closet,
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
when she doesn’t know how to live alone,
when she doesn’t know how to set herself free
from the one she still loves.

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

You express well what is so much the human condition. One which is usually quite painful. Excellent poetry!

You have created the atmosphere of emotional turmoil within this wonderful poem Brenda, and the agony of not being able to let go. The videos compliment the poem and I love your choice.
