Poem: 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 Summary

Lonely existence is about the life one leads when he has no feelings for anyone else. He thinks only of himself living his life in an illusion. The lies he has created leaves him living a lonely existence. He feels no sorrow for the hurt he causes others along the way.

"Think For Yourself" by The Beatles

"Lonely Existence"

The constant battle he wages
leaves him uncertain of his desires,
leading to tragic outcomes
in his life.

Loneliness consumes his soul
wanting to be someone
he is not,
losing the ablility to touch reality
within the bed of lies
he creates.

Thinking only of himself
living life as an illusion,
believing all things exists solely for him
with no thought of the pain
he inflicts on others.

He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual.

— Thomas Jefferson
