My Isolation

Staring out the window
in the dark
Same old empty feeling
in my heart

Images embedded in my head
still remain and keeps coming back
keeps coming back in a song
Moments in Time

Every time I think about that song
I picture you and me
Walking the beach hand in hand,
Sharing popcorn at the movies
going to a ballgame
going to a local disco
dancing the night away

It's so lonely,
So empty,
In my room,
My Isolation

Memories slowed time
Bringing the darkness

Strapped to a chair,
Trapped by my own mind,
Looking at the open entryway
With demons dancing in my head
Feeding my mind with bitter thoughts.
The outside comes to my window,
All is vivid and near but can't be touched

It's so lonely
So dreadful
So frightful
In my room,
My Isolation

The world may never end
But I may not have many days

Staring, silent, bare and hollow
looking out from within,
Still waiting for a rainbow
after the storm,

It's so lonely
so empty
so frightful
so hopeless
in my room
My isolation

My isolation

For the the death haunts my mind because I had 3 brain surgeries in one year I try to ignore this thought but everything I look at is like a hammer bashing the thought deep into my brain.

Hlm life without literature is a life without logic.

I enjoyed this poem, and especially loved the line
"All is vivid and near but can't be touched"

Hlm life without literature is a life without logic.

Good writing and I wish you well in the competition.
I believe so many people feel like that these Covid days.
I'm lucky as the past few years I have not gotten around very much so the isolation part of this pandemic doesn't bother me so much as other folks.
