The Abyss of Loneliness

I haven't shared any creative writing or poetry in a while... so i thought I'd share one :-)

I wrote this several months ago now when I was feeling a bit lonely as I think we all sometimes do. It's kinda funny how you can be surrounded by people who love and support you and yet still feel all alone sometimes.

And; NO this was not inspired by Cruella ;-)

The Abyss of Loneliness

The silence deafens me as I stare into the abyss...

the abyss of loneliness...

It beckons me with voices and visions from the past...

At last...

my dulled senses begin to burn with the pain of loss...

my cross...

I grasp for the illusions created in my mind and in my soul...

the hole...

I fall into the abyss... the abyss of loneliness

Signed, Regular Guy


  1. I whole heartedly relate to the lonely in spite of being surrounded by so many. Sometimes I imagine it's when I've abandoned myself- that I get lonely- if that makes any sense.

    Short but poignantly written. As well as nice to read in comparison to the "dastardly deeds of said ex."

  2. Hey, I recognize this one from the BAforums. Simple yet descriptive enough to paint a picture. I picture some guy sitting in some dark room with a cross around his neck. Dazed out staring into the darkness thinking about a different time. Maybe a bottle of jack daniels hanging loosely out of his hand with a low gloom of a lamp from a small coffee table by his side.

  3. Thanks for the comment Brazen... I like to try to mix things up a bit... and yeah... what you said does make sense... friends come and go... therefore we always need to be able to rely on ourselves if you lose yourself... effectively... you lose your best friend.

    And fly boy... yeah you pretty much got the picture ... but I'm a vodka man myself ;-) and "my cross" is also meant to be symbolic as in...the pain of loss is my cross to bear...

    Thanks dude...I appreciate your feedback

  4. I like it too, I hate that I can't write like that ....Oh and yeah TT is back what a wanker, why doesn't she bug you guys

  5. Helllooo kat... personally I like your writing style ;-)... and hey, I thought you said wanker was a term of endearment... did you find some redeeming quality in TT ?... you

  6. Very nice, I enjoyed reading it.

  7. Whoa. Talk about deep and totally heartfelt! I'm right there with you in somehow feeling alone even when you're surrounded by people that love you... and I LOVED Armando's interpretation of it...

  8. Thanks Dette... funny how that works, isn't it? ;-)

    You can check out some of Armondo's writing at Placebo Effect

  9. Hey RG that was a nice poem and it's true that you can "feel so alone with people standing all around you"

    janet jackson has a song I used to listen to back in the day called Lonely, I love it. Words rang true.

  10. Thanks Natural... I know the song... I come from "Back in the Day"... lol
