Internal Sadness

Never did I blend
Apart, I will always be
Hermit-ted away from society
Did it choose me, 
or I it
A bit of both, conceivably
Externally charming, happy
Sadness cries

Painting: Defeat II by Yvonee Palermo

This poem was inspired by Magaly Guerrero's prompt: Estranged and Cut off,
a part of NaPoWriMo 2015


  1. Some people seek solitude while others learned to take comfort in it because they had no other choice. And sometimes it's a very cold comfort indeed. Really well done.

  2. Those first two lines are powerful, Reba. The punctuation does great thing for the meaning of the words, too. So brief and so heartbreaking.
