Dog Lonely



If I'm truly honest with myself

I would say my late twenties were terribly lonely

after a battle to leave a toxic relationship

I found myself

lonely in a different way

when you are lonely in love that's just unbearable 

but now I was lonely by choice

and some nights

I was so lonely

I could have fucked a dog

I say could have

just to show my level of loneliness

of course I didn't fuck a dog

but loneliness

 certainly has its moments.

          A poem filled with raw honesty and power. It takes a brave soul to reveal so much of one's self. One of the very best I have read in a while. - Phil A.

                  Loneliness comes in many forms at different times of life. I had a dog, when I was young that my dad would not allow in the house, it was lonely. I remember it to this day. Nothing deserves to be lonely.

                  • Teddy.15

                    So very kind of you to come here sometimes I read this and giggle other times it makes me feel really sad about the loneliness, yes no one should ever feel so lonely. Thank you so much dear sorrenbarret. 🌹
