I’m not alone

It's a dark lonely night
And I'm far from home
But it's a vast, wide world
And I'm not alone

But I'm walking alone
Amidst a dark. damp street
An occasional lamp
A hidden moon above me.

A beautiful life in an unjust era
All are unique and yet the same
Under the lamp, I make friends
Some stay, others flee this game.

Betrayed and ambushed,
I'm losing faith and will
But then comes the street lamp
And the alley follows the drill.

I don't know
Where this alley ends
I don't know the way
Yet I decide how it bends.

People come and leave
A few share my pathway
I encounter storms and rains
Keep awaiting the day

And when sun rays
Finally pierce through the sky
That's when I know
That night was worth the try.

It's a dark, cruel world
I'm walking on my own
I'm far from home
But I'm not alone.

Hey guys!

I know I haven’t kept my promise and have been absent since the last couple of months but I’m really sorry for that. My school exams just got over last week and now, finally, I have time to write and read. I haven’t been feeling very motivated, though. Even after looking through several blogs and sites, I can’t find a way out of this slump. If you have any tips, do share.

If you liked my poem, hit that like button. If not, please tell me what I can improve about it. I’m always open to any feedback that you have.

Also, if you’re new here, welcome to Fictive Finesse. I’m not usually like this. I mean, I’m not always absent. Often but not always.

Thanks for reading!

    I particularly like the opening and closing stanza.
    I was expecting more descriptions of the things that keep you company “I am not alone”, but I like the tale about overcoming darkness. Well done.

      Thank you!
      The things that keep you company? Um…Friends and family, their memories and just the idea that I’m not the only person experiencing this. I wanted to say that, like me, others are going through similar situations and experiencing darkness, too. Hmm, I wasn’t very descriptive of that, huh. Guess I’ll have to add a couple of stanzas more. Thanks for the feedback, Goldie!
