Somehow Alone

Somehow Alone

A Poem by Lexi Askew

I’m loved
And yet I’m alone
I’m happy
But I have a death wish

Late at night
When I’m the only one awake
My pain makes an appearance
Emptiness shows itself

And I’m alone
Despite the full house
Overwhelming sense of feeling
At war with cold numbness

On the verge of crying
Yet my eyes stay dry
A scream begging to come out
But my ears are too sensitive

I’m alone
A fact that will never change
I’m loved
But I’m alone

Your poem is really painful, Lexi. Being alone is frustrating. Although I have never been like this, I can understand your situation well. Anyway you wrote it really beautifully :)

I know this feeling, It sucks to sit alone with there is a house of people. No one knows how you feel, but yet you really don't want to tell them. I know this feeling.

Lexi I too know this feeling from my husband's death in Afghanistan a couple of years ago, I know he still loves me, I feel it but i miss him and ache for him especially when alone in my bed at night -- I think you understand this and how much it hurts to be alone.
Richard said I will love your poetry and he is so completely right, you are a very special writer and beautiful person, don't cry any more, you are not alone as long as I am here -- much love!♥️

I’m 19 years old, and I don’t post as much as I used to. I write what I care about, and whether it’s good or not doesn’t matter anymore. Just read what I write and do with it a.. more..
