A Poem by Bhumika Devkota

So what if I like to be alone?
Why do you care?
Leave me and don't look back,
That's what you did before,
Didn't you,
I like to be alone,
Away from the world,
Away from my past life,
I have became invisible,
I like that,
Not having to worry about anyone,
I did rather be alone and unhappy,
then be with your group,
You threw me like trash,
When you got new friends,
And now you want to be friends again?
Oh please,
Never again,
We are true friends?
Yeah, you showed me that alright,
Now they left you,
And you want me back?
Well now guess what? 
I am used to begin a loner,
Begin invisible,
All thanks to you,
Maybe we were friends once,
But no more,
I am now alone in this world,
I even give you a second chance,
But you used it to
make me cry, hurt,
You spread lies about me,
You seemed to have fun,
So why be friends again?
You lost your chance,
And yet,
I hope the best for you.

Okay, I have no idea what made me right this, but enjoy! And, for all you people who like to be alone, I feel you. Sometimes, it feels better to be alone than in a crowd.

This doesn't need any kind of rhyming scheme, it's powerful enough. Very emotional and I know that a lot of people can relate to this. Addressing the reader is an overused technique, in my opinion, but this poem suits it perfectly, I wouldn't have written it any other way. Well done.

Thank you :)
I can completely relate to your experiences. I was bullied relentlessly and abandoned by friends. I have always been a loner because I've been hurt so many times and I'm afraid of that happening again. One of my favorite things about poetry is how it connects people. We may feel all alone in our pain and suffering, but the truth is we aren't.

Thank you.
Oh boy. A poem right up my alley. I understand your sentiments completely, BDunder. I am alone by choice. I am an old guy living along and I Iike it just fine. I've been down that road you speak of and I have come to the conclusion that "love" is the cause of more pain and hurt than anything in the world. I liked how you wrote this, using the conversation to bring out the reasons you stated.
