Why?



For Poetry Jam where the theme is  Loneliness and Solitude










sitting

quietly

in a corner

sobbing


tears flowing

down her cheeks

alone


mind searching

for a reason

confused


wondering

why did he leave

suddenly


joy

happiness

now all gone


crying

trembling

curled in a ball

inconsolable


others

ignore her

it’s like

she’s

invisible

  2. Your poem made me think of how children feel and cry when something happens to them and their siblings hardly pay any attention.

  3. Insightful. Tis in the nature of the beast to be indifferent to the pain and suffering of others.Of course therre ae always the few exceptions who write about it. Enjoyed this one !

  4. Quite sad, I think, to be crying and have others totally ignore you. I definitely feel the pain in this one.

  8. "curled in a ball" & "she's / invisible" speak volumes for her loneliness caused by her separation...wonderful imagery used here...
