Even My Shadow Deserts Me:

by Scott Cole   Aug 29, 2017

It's the loneliest feeling in the World
I wouldn't wish it on no one,
For not a single living Soul
Would find it's company any fun.

I can only depend on myself
For no one else has my back,
Even my own shadow won't follow me
Because my social skills are wack.

My personal Life is suffering
Cause I'm detached from society,
And I'm literally driving myself insane
From the silence of my anxiety.

The serenity of my mind
Is abandoned by my conscience,
So even myself let's me down
I'm the Master of my own silence.

For all I know is stillness
But it's so hard to ignore,
Cause all of this quietness
Makes my Life such a bore.

I wish I could rescue my wellbeing
Introduce my emptiness to a friend,
But single handedly I have no chance
Because independently my lonely heart can't mend.

    I just read your poem God's gift. It was very optimistic and this one is so sad. I hope everything is going well for you.
    As far as the poem is concerned, there aren't any flaws in it.
    Everything perfect!
