Email Poem | Today's Poetry

Lonely is Merely One Word

Lonely is merely one word 
Chosen to represent so much
To tell of feelings inside
That the senses cannot touch
Lonely can be in the teardrops
On a bereaved person’s cheek
Lonely can be in the silence of sorrows
Too deep to speak
Lonely can haunt a deserted room
That Laughter once made proud
Lonely surrounds you when you’re alone
Or finds you in a crowd
Lonely is heard in echoed footsteps
Of a departing friend
Lonely penetrates the solitude 
Of nights that will not end
Lonely will not listen
To the pleadings of a broken heart
Lonely stays and torments
Until new Love shatters it apart
