Stay With Me

"Stay With Me"

"Alone and frightened;
quiet and cold,
shivering in my chair,
my arms huddled around
myself.
The coldness envelopes,
smothering, freezing,
ceasing all life within..."

So I write in my journal,
for I am too weak to stand,
too cold to lift my head,
so lonely
so sick
Please, I don't know
what's wrong,
what's wrong with me,
but please don't leave me
alone...

Stay with me...

when I read this I think of sanity leaving instead of a person, am I correct?
Either way this is a lovely poem!

Actually, yes, it was a person. Well, people, anything and everything was leaving. I'm alone. But I always like it when people have their own interpretations of poetry. smiling smiley

laughs softly So cheerful. I was actually thinking about you and how nobody was online a few minutes ago. I was like "Where's Sargirl..? She's usually here.." I missed you! But yes, I was describing myself as "alone and frightened," but that is because I was afraid of being alone. Am I going around in circles?

No!
Circles?
Never!
Life takes you on a curvy New England road, it may seem as if you were there before, but you are moving forward and learning along the way!
I miss you too!

Megan, I'll stay with you. I promise. I'll keep you warm. I'll hold you in my arms. I'll be there with you. I love you so much.

All my love,

Megan, you have a talent for writing things that I feel too. Unfortunately, the person I truly wanted to stay with me chose another.

Just recently, the loneliness has become tougher to bear, and I'm not sure why. Times like this are when I am at my most reclusive, I seem to shrink back into the shell.
