Poem: Feeling Lost

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

Feeling lost is about how others want solitude while she feels lost with no idea how to handle all those quiet moments alone. After too many hours she feels like she is lost at sea. She hides these feelings and keeps on moving pretending everything is fine.

"The Lonely" by Christina Perri

"Feeling Lost"

While others crave solitude
she has no idea
how to spend her moments alone.

After too many hours
she feels on edge
like she is lost at sea
with no way of returning to shore.

She lets no one know
these feelings hiding deep
as she goes through the motions
pretending all is fine.

Ms. Dora,

I think it is good to have an option, but sharing time with another does help renew one's soul.

Just so different when one was used to spending time with someone to find oneself alone.

The quiet noise takes a bit if getting used too...even though we all need alone time.

Thanks for reading.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on January 12, 2020:

I've gotten accustomed to being alone. However, there is nothing wrong in seeking companionship, so that the person who wants to, can have some of both worlds. Your poem makes me think that is is better when an option is available.

Ruby,

Quiet time for one is needed..but too much of it can be nerve wracking.

So delighted you think I expressed these feelings.

Have a great day!

Crezyl,

Glad to hear I am not alone. But it is not a good feeling.

Delighted to hear you love this one.

May you find peace this new year.

Sometimes I need solitude, other times I can't stand to be alone. You've expressed the feelings so well!

Thank you Manatita44.

Your words describe solitude and loneliness so accurately.

Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts.

May your New Year be full of good tidings.

Expressed well. Solitude is the fullness of the Heart in Silence. Loneliness is the emptiness of the heart.

Loneliness springs from attachments, expectations … desires, fear … solitude from the outpouring of God's Love in the depths or profundity of the soul.

Loneliness is necessary. How can we experience the Light without knowing the darkness? Solitude is an evolution to, or of the Light.

Back to your poem. Your have expressed it well in prose and song.
