to get a glimpse of attraction,
that fickle-minded monster that
makes the days miserable, wants
to have a piece of congenial love,
how pitiful is the plight of heart
that gets scorched in the sun of
ignorance, how wretched am I
to try to take things from time
which is not mine, never was
a friend(or not) yesterday evoked me
with words such that substantiates
things I had taken not into account
“A, we always leave you alone and
you do not mind”, I am battered, lost
by the treachery of my belief, my will
to breathe the winds of the company
but tis’ not in my fates, I am frugal, whole
the way I am: plain, sane, full of disdain

Powerful and touching, as always, HA.
Thank you, dear friend, for your gracious feedback. I sure hope that you are doing really good. 🙂
Very powerful. Wonderful writing;)
Above all, being whole is what matters.
And if your are left alone though feeling that you shouldn’t be, your voice should be heard. Powerful writing as the others have commented Anmol. Hope you are well.
I resonate with this. I’ve had a troubled past and was told time and again to “stop looking for attention.” I was just looking for someone to understand me. It led me to make some decisions whigh turned out to be all wrong and left me more lonely than ever.
There was some relief to discover that I have an actual mental illness and to begin treating it so I don’t act so impulsively and desperately. However, that discovery has had consequences of its own. I often feel as though I really and truly don’t belong in this world.
I’m the author of the Octopus poem from your recent prompt. 🙂
Gut-wrenching write HA ~ I admire both perspective, and being alone is not a bad thing ~
interesting…if you are comfortable with being left alone, great…if not…its a whole different feel to it….
