Until you have been abandoned

By your one thread of sanity

In a cacophony of unfamiliarity

And your heart aches

As though plucked from your very body

And you are a sole speck

In a galaxy of haemorrhaging tears,

You do not know how it feels to be


Emma H, age 26, 21/02/2017

If anyone is wondering, the photograph is also my own, taken on a beautiful snowy day in Durham in 2013 – I thought the lonely black and white bench perfectly captures the essence of solitude in my poem.

Feel free to leave comments, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
