It's Better To Be Alone

It's Better To Be Alone

A Poem by Booklover200014

Just a poem that I did after having a fight with my friends, yet again

Who do you think I am?
Just a clone, just another you?
Nothing but an outline of who I used to be
I'm slowly fading into what you wanted

My bright shinning sun is now covered with dark clouds
I want to break free of these chains
Leave this cruel world behind
But somethings holding me back, what could it be?

Hope, love family
These words are the only thing that keeps me holding on
My world is beginning to shatter
Somebody save me

I have never felt so alone and betrayed
You have never been there
Did you ever even care?
Or was I just your backup plan

You were never a good friend
I'm better off without you
If you ever feel lonely, don't bother to call me
I'd be gone, living my life in the sun

I have never been so happy
The dark clouds are lifting my spirits
I realize now that maybe it's better to be alone
Nobody can hurt you

Hi Booklover

I can tell your feelings were hurt when you wrote this. It's a pretty haunting piece, and it kind of touched me. I can totally relate to someone who feels as shy and quiet as I do. I think you're poetry is pretty cool. Keep up the good work. :)

Thanks for the review, it's nice to have someone that can relate to my feelings. :)
Yea. People suck.

Sadly, while some of us can live quite happily alone in a cabin somewhere in the middle of a dense wood, most of us crave company. We don't want to be all by ourselves. We want recognition, we want acceptance. We want to feel valued.

I'm sorry for your troubles. You probably do need new, better friends. From this piece I would gather you know a "queen bee" type. I'd ditch her, but you have to be aware of the possible, highly likely fallout.

Thanks for sharing this piece. You conveyed the anger, sadness, frustration, and pain well. It's also fairly well written.

And in regards to stanzas two and three? Don't do it. Keep holding on. Don't let your jerk "friends" push you into something that's as "final" as that. Give yourself a chance to find some decent people to call your own. Like diamonds they're hard to find. But they are out there. And even shy people manage to find them.

Be well.
