It is descriptive of the way I feel every day when I wake up.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Depression and Suicide Poems

And so it came to be
this isolation that I am
I can only look to me
to find the way it all began -
this confusion, constant
hunger for something more than this
I strive to find this being
that I envision, yet seem to miss.
Could it be that I am empty-
or maybe a little lost?
Could it be that I am lonely,
or seek happiness at any cost?
This never-ending Something
that I am living deep inside,
depicts the illusion of myself
and all I have to hide.

    I give this poem a seven out of ten. I tend to grade harshly, so that is saying something. You are an excellent writer and you style resembles that of Emily Dickenson. Keep up the good work.

    Ok, you know your poem is good, when it makes someone cry, your words they struck me, and jammed into my side, I am sitting here baffeled and can't believe your words, cuz everything that you said, just caused a bigger void, I like the things you said in it, because they all were so true, keep up your writing, just make sure what you say is really you

    as i sit here on my birthday pondering my life, i find this poem brings me some peace. thank you for letting me know i'm not alone and that many of us travel the world feeling lost. maybe if more of us speak up, being lost would no longer feel "abnormal".

  • Hilde
    The answer is within you. In the quiet corner of your inner being are all the answers to your question. My thoughts are with you and I wish you contentment and Peace Profound. I found in trying to be what I would like others to be I am halfway on my way what I seek. Forgive the grammar, besides not speaking perfect Englich I forget words. I wish you well,
  • amy
