I'm used to not meaning much to anyone.
I'm used to being alone -
And really, I can't complain.
My solitary lifestyle suits my personality,
Observing, watching the world pass by,
Curled around my book and cup of tea -
Maybe a little judgmental,
Maybe a little sad.

But you know, it gets lonely.
I'm my own best friend, it's true-
But sometimes I want to call someone
And watch a movie, or just sit around
And do nothing in particular-
Just sharing air and experiences.

Then again, who am I kidding.

I'm not good at the friend thing.

So I shall continue with my book
And my cup of tea with tinges of judgement
And sadness,
Watching the rain dripping down the windows
With a smile and a sigh.
comments and feedback are always appreciated

Note: I have a couple corrections I intend to make to this later... for whatever reason DA isn't allowing it atm.

Well written, and yes, I can relate too. However I got better at the friend thing, sometimes you just need to find the right people :)

You put into words what I think all the time.

This is sad, but beautiful! I love both the relaxed tone of it and the melancholy words.

This describes most of my life perfectly... I'm just kinda too busy to notice it! But hey, somehow, I've found friends :)

Nice job!

Wow. I have felt this way numerous times. Friends seem so elusive to me....like an exclusive club or something. Loneliness is a part of living. I really don't like to be alone though I find myself wishing to be alone when I'm with people. Back on topic though, I really like this.

That's exactly how I feel... it's odd, isn't it? I often find myself almost looking down on people when I'm in a group with them, watching all the stupid little behaviors that I just don't understand/wish to get involved in, haha.

Thank you!

Nice. Really like this poem.
I can get the feeling of loneliness as i sometime feel it myself and this poem reflects my feeling the best!!

You inspire me to write a poem about my loneliness.

Well written, good "twist". I like the description of feelings through moments and props. The mixed, balanced emotion is well summarized in "a smile and a sigh".

I like this a lot, I guess I can relate to the sentiment behind it.

Wow I actually lost my breath a little at the conclusion. I can definitely relate to the content. The form is not too simple, yet not garish either. Beautiful, and I don't say that about many things anymore.

Thank you :) It means a lot, especially as this is my first piece of writing that I've done in many months.

Well, encouragement should certainly be given where it is due. Keep expressing yourself. Although you have a vast (almost intimidating) body of work I intend on checking some more of it out after that experience.
