Might It Be Better?

Might It Be Better?

A Poem by Ella

Might It Be Better?

Might it be better to be alone forever?
As I lie alone tonight 
I think about all the times we held each other
 side by side
Wouldn't it be better to be alone forever?

All these thoughts are running around my head 
and I cant seem to get away.
This uphill battle has left me in shackles 
and I'm sure it would be better
So much better 
to be alone forever 

For the ones I loved have slipped away 
and I'm left to face these inner demons
these sort of feelings I cant seem to escape
The harder I try 
the closer they get.

So I fall and fall into the abyss of 
depression and anxiety and the fear
the fear is overwhelming.

As the darkness starts to suffocate me 
I believe
Yes I believe 
Its so much better to be alone
 forever.

Great one....We all feel like alone in some phases of our life..Sometimes it is better to be alone than staying in a heartbreaking relationship....I can relate to it deeply....It is indeed a very truthful poetry and there is a message behind it....Good job my frnd....

Love is a b***h and it causes us great pain as you described in your poem. I think did a great job describing how it affects our psyche with depression and anxiety. Unfortunately, we all need a love and no matter how alone we might want to be our soul eventually will seek that lover. Love this poem. N.

Very nicely done, dark and poignant. Interesting ideas. It seems that we have a kind of trenchant desire for companionship, and when people can be so cruel and unreliable still we seek that companionship, like a moth to the flame, just to escape ourselves for a time in the pursuit of feeling something real or to avoid emptiness and loneliness. Sometimes it seems that we can only really rely on ourselves in a life of constant flux, chaos, and dubious intentions.

I was always back bullied as a lone ranger during my teenage times. It reminds me of those days. Still I am a lone ranger and is in love with it. That Phrase which reads " for the ones I loved have slipped away And I am left to face these inner demons..." hold a very deep meaning. Overall I liked it.

you pose a question that many have asked...at some points in all of our lives we wonder if being alone my reduce the risk of our demons hurting others because those demons certainly seem (though it might be us who do the chasing) to chase family and friends away sometimes...and we might even argue that we are born alone and we will die alone, for birth and death are very personal and individual times for us...but perhaps, the real answer is no... it is always best to drag our demons out, kicking and screaming, so that others can call them by name and help us to battle them...if we sit alone with them, there is no chance at all at winning that fight...

Your poem leaves us with a thought-provoking question... well-done

Yes, you are absolutely correct...and you are welcome!
Ella,

This is a very personal poem you have written and the expression shown how you truly feel. To share the feelings you have is very special. being hurt happens in life but its how you handle it and at time you just have to move on. That next person that you might love is waiting someone for you to say, hello.

Thank you once again and i appreciate you taking the time to read my poetry. It means a lot.

Choices and forks in the road. Always the decision will involve some form of risk. Choosing which risk to take tells us who we are.

Very nicely written.

Sometimes people go into new relationships expecting things to be a certain way and when they are not, they might as well have shot themselves in the foot.
It pays to be open minded.
Sometimes, if you can get past these little things, you'll find a myriad of things much more important that you will find agreement on. I'm just saying!. I never expect anything ever, so I can't be disappointed!

Beautiful! It's interesting when I go through a break-up or lose a close friendship that I begin to think "Would I have been better off being without this relationship and do I want to go through another relationship again?" So many people can relate to this poem. Very nice!
