I don't really mind
being alone.
It still hurts.
Seeing everyone else
in their gaggles, pairs
and amoebas,
hurts,
rain pours in my heart
for an instant.
The agony is fleeting,
I talk myself out
of the feelings,
the thoughts.
Too many people
have left me,
throwing half-glances
and stinging backward waves.
I must not wallow
in my puddle of tears
long,
I cannot seem to harden
it pains me
worse
every new
colorful,
soul-shattering
parting.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Henry Drummond

WOW!

I feel like I can really relate to this poem, being by myself too often in class. I can just tell this by your poetry but you seem like a loner. That's not a bad thing. :)

I love your insights on my writing. And thank you. I don't think it's bad to harden either, it's just so hard to grieve for long so often.

Quite wonderful, Ms. Stargirl! The feelings are sincerely written down (that is a good thing for artists of words). Very beautiful, if saddening. Indeed, I rather think that it's okay to not harden when it comes to emotions...
