‘Lonely Souls’

Loneliness

We are the lonely souls

Wandering through dirty roads of life

Unsure of our destinies, we walk unsteadily

Searching for arms that will hold us tight enough

Unable to call out

We shyly hide from each other

Stealing time to get closer

And then falling apart again and again

Too frightened to ask if it’s real

Or if it’s just another mistake

Watching past heartbreakes from a distance

We compare

Our minds start to consider

When they just shouldn’t care

 

We are the lonely souls

Searching for what we could never find

Slowly getting further and further

Our chances for survival weakening every second

Until they fade away and we realize

It’s me and you again

– Not us

    I agree, it’s only momentarily that two souls connect to share an amazing bond. Nonetheless, we walk side by side in our alone-ness.

  7. I liked the melody of this, by the time I finished reading I was singing. Yes, I can relate to the lonely soul, especially in a crowd of familiar people. Very nice!

  9. “…Too frightened to ask if it’s real
    Or if it’s just another mistake
    Watching past heartbreakes from a distance
    We compare
    Our minds start to consider
    When they just shouldn’t care…”

    Caring starts the process of receiving my heart’s desire.
    If I compromise, I normally get that I settled fore.

  10. Beautifully crafted… Love it.

  11. sometimes, when you are with someone you love, and they are not being attentive to you, you feel more lonely than if you were just on your own.
