Poem: Lost and Alone

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

"Here Without You" by 3 Doors Down

poem-lost-and-alone

She’s feels so lost,
sitting here between four walls
trying to be normal
when nothing seems familiar.

She feels so lonely,
wishing she could hear his voice
picturing the family she once enjoyed,
knowing she has been left behind.

Her heart aches with a pain
she has not felt before,
an emptiness so toxic
she cannot breathe,
a feeling she does not want to last.

"Tin Man" by Miranda Lambert

Could be that I was just listening something sad, but this brought a tear to my eye. Nice writing.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on December 31, 2019:

"Trying to be normal when nothing seems familiar" is absolutely difficult. Your images always pull hard at the heartstrings. Good poetry as usual.

Kari Poulsen from Ohio on December 31, 2019:

I feel I am often "trying to be normal when nothing seems familiar." This is another beautiful and moving poem. Happy New Years, Brenda. I hope next year brings happiness and peace.
