ONLY

In my own little world
Is where I’ll be
In my own little world
For no one to see
Nothing can hurt me
No words to insult me
Only my hands hold the key

In my own little world
Is where I’ll be
In my own little world
For no one to see
No one to love me
No words to encourage me
In my own little world
There is no “we”

In my own little world
There’s no one to miss me
They don’t even know I’m away
My heart breaks, but I’ll take time to pray
Only me, in my little hideaway

(Some may wonder, but this is not about me…I was thinking of those who are all alone in the world)

  1. i love how you started this piece in an almost confident tone, then ended it with all the sad aspects of being alone ….. i can really relate to this piece. i love being alone and focusing my thoughts on what i want, but sometimes it just get’s plain lonely!! well written.

    short stories, poems, music, ramblings …..

    • Thanks, Elle.Tea.Emm! I wanted to convey both of those feelings and I think most people like and need to have their own space, at times. It’s also very sad for those around us who don’t have anyone to turn to, anyone to be joyful with or to help them just get through the day…I wish I could magically make it better for those whose hearts are hurting…

  2. no, i have loved ones and a great support system! i just tend to need some alone time every now and then. thanks for being concerned 🙂
