The Poet Of Loneliness

The Poet Of Loneliness

A Poem by Gullia 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.

I think it nails loneliness Gullia.
It's not so much about being shunned - being cold-shouldered by society, as not feeling that one belongs in that same society.
And then being dragged back to it day and daily whilst knowing that just over the rainbow is a world of endless possibilities and our 'real' corner of the Earth.
It will connect to so many here, I feel.
Well done.

Guilla,
You have a good outline, I think more depth in explaining thoughts and feelings would make this poem more powerful. I like the premise, anyone who writes seriously understands loneliness.

Gullia, you say this is not one of your best pieces, but there is tremendous potential in it.

I like the title to begin with and the sketch is tremendous. Just a suggestion, print off the sketch and the title and stick it on the fridge and see what develops.

The lady in black stands out as the 'poet of loneliness' but there's more to the story. I would like to know what it is.

Good luck.

If I wrote this it would be more like ..
She would spent rest of her life in wonderland...than doing her normal routine chores...as there is no option she would spend nights and days scribbling about her dreams...lost in dream land...she is a poet of dreams ;)
I like the pic with the lady in black.. the black lipstick stands out :)

"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 awhile."

Sure you haven't written this about me? :P lol it feels as if I'm reading about myself ;)

It's beautiful yet kind of sad too. I would say these are musings of a restless soul (not an old one) ;)

I loved reading this, Gullia! I can so connect with all of this!

Great work :)

Thank you for taking your time to review, Surya :)
This is why poetry is the only silent language in the world other than love. It gives the person place to breathe in words and at least find a way to fight the demons of life. What is standing out in your writing is the story telling, you showed us how fortune we are to be able to write poetry... I would say one of your strong writes...

Note: In the line "Hoping immensely that there's is an end to" I think you have added an extra 'is'...
