I am alone


Sometimes living alone is fun
you can eat from the pot
using a bread bun
sing dance and fart
pretend you’re a drum
read write pray
without a sound
and everything you hide
will always be found
but sometimes living alone is hard
like cracking the code
of your dad’s bank- card.
You think
what if I suddenly choke?
Or even worse
have a stroke?
Awake from a bad dream
to a quicksand of woe
how will anyone else
ever know?
So you think
and you sink
and you sink


      1. Very true, I’m actually posting a blog about this in a few days.. Been working on it today. It’s about Mood and how it can have an impact on us that we seemingly can’t protect ourselves from.

      2. That topic reminds me of these favourite quotes of mine by Elizabeth Gilbert. I hope you like them too and that they help you with your post:

        “You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.”

        “Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions.”

      3. This is very much in line with what I am suggesting in my post, i argue that all situations in life have a potential set of emotional reactions to them and it is our choice which we follow. Mood is very much controllable, although it’s taken me years to come to a point where I realise this

  1. I hate how much I can relate to this. This is what I think every single day. That if I die right there, no one will ever find me. (well, unless they try to find me) :( It’s just so saaaaaaaaad. If you don’t mind, I’ll be reblogging this. This is beautiful. ♥

  2. Beautiful.

    There is nothing wrong with feeling sad or lonely. It is a feeling and not a fact. Feeling sad or lonely is telling you something about yourself.

    And giving voice to your feelings, FEELING them allows us to receive their message for us and for the feeling to pass.

    At least that is my take on it.

    Thank you again for the poetry.
