The Poet Of Loneliness

The Poet Of Loneliness

A Poem by Giullia King

She was an old soul,
desperately trying to find the meaning of her life. 
She couldn’t decide which world she liked better. 
The one her body was in, 
or the one her mind liked to escape to once in a while.
Like a broken flower, she hides her thorns from the cold world. 
Hoping immensely that there is an end to everything that is draining her spiritually. 
She had a wandering pen and an endless imagination.
Writing gave her a sense of freedom and happiness. 
She was the poet of loneliness.

Beautiful. It just reminds me of a true story of a lady that committed suicide. Much of her secret writings were discovered when she was gone.

I think it is one of your best pieces...it spoke to me so deeply. I feel like that poet of loneliness, sometimes. Escaping the real world to run through the pages of fiction...writing the stories I cannot live...penning about the love I will never know. Not every poem has to be a masterpiece...it just has to carry a message that speaks to the reader. THAT is what makes it great. Nicely done.

You put a big smile on my face, Michael. Thank you so much :')
This is beautiful and would perfectly go with the song: "The sound of silence''. When the world is drowning us, sometimes the only thing that soothes the soul is to dip into the sea or words.

I agree. Thank you for all of your reviews, Prachi :)
i think there is something to be said for how relatable this poem is...especially for me, thinking of my dad's last days and how he no longer had the purpose of taking care of my mom since she had passed a few years ago...
and his body was breaking down...he was always so proud, so tough and took care of everyone else...now he was cared for...and i am sure his mind wandered within his dementia..wondering just what his purpose was.

That's very sad to hear/read. But, your dad sounds like an amazing man :)
Many writers and Poets embrace loneliness.
"She had a wandering pen and an endless imagination.
Writing gave her a sense of freedom and happiness.
She was the poet of loneliness."
I liked the above lines. I thoughts I would die alone. I was lucky. A kind woman felt pity for me. Thank you Gullia for sharing the amazing poetry.

Feels like I'm destined to be alone. Thank you for reading :)
Your choice of presentation and image is sheer perfection in simple, direct, uncomplicated expression.
Dear Gullia,
For me, this little "scribble" of yours is such a rare, unexpected, and unique experience, because it could easily have been written for/of me, as the emotional timbre, the poignant ambiance of your gripping words fit my nature to a tee, and I guess it's one of the prime reasons why my pieces are so much about fantasizing the textures, hues, and sensations of love, feelings, togetherness … but, there "is" a sense of my revealing depth of loneliness reflected in some of them, too.
Enough about me!
I love your poetic voice, for how vividly real, directly true, and honest it speaks unto my being and core, and in the way(s) it so smoothly and easily touches the heart … deftly and vividly tugging your swept fans into, through, and between the physical, imaginative, and emotional realms.

Thanks ever so warmly for sharing your fine skills, and You✨ ⁓ Richard
