Thanks To Loneliness

An original poem

Photo by Tim Marshall on Unsplash

He walked into me and tore everything off the shelves

broke windows I never knew I had

and took everything I had left

He lifted me up

just to let me freefall

into a sea of myself

And from this sea

there was no escape

I searched for him in the sea

and when I couldn’t find him

I proceeded to try and drown myself in other ways

Self-destructive

I was

In an attempt to feel that familiar pain

that I called home for so long

Until loneliness reached her hand out

and saved me

I fought her at first

and I cried out for help

and cried out for him

and cried out some more

Until I realized

that loneliness was the stranger I needed all along

Not the boy that I thought I knew

who walked into me

and tore everything off the shelves

so I grab loneliness by the hand

and thank her for allowing me to find her

without her

I would not be me

someone crafted so beautifully

due to her touch

and her love

and her willingness to stay
