ALONE

I have a heart that beats, Yet there is still a black hole
where there should be a heart,
Whats more brittle, A touch from the cold or the
emptiness that freezes the soul,
Always taking more and more,
Never enough given back, Never enough,
Eyes are black, No sign of life,
A void  with no filling, No feeling,
Lacking all that makes it right, Lack of light,
In the darkest places we hide, Never looking out,
Only receding farther and farther back into the dark,
Till we are no more but a mere shadow,
 In some ones memory,
 Wondering if you really existed in the first place,
Finding you are not alone in here,
at the same time you  realize, You are,
ALONE.....................................................

Sorry I meant to say, people do need to be loved. Your poem speaks this. It sounds like a broken heart someone has experienced. Good work.

One of my dearest friends asked me yesturday ....Do you really hear voices? I said all my life but they dont tell me to blow up things or hurt myself. They were comfort before I new that alone was a description of what I have always been. these words triggerd that from a long ago place Deni Le Mar

an excellent rendering of a souls estate when one realizes where and what one actually is all alone in this life without the true light of life..jesus and love

Faint not, big guy...there are a zillion females looking for the likes of you................LOL! Good poem!

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
