That’s amazing Emily… Quite a dark poem.. I like it ..and so I hope you don’t mind if I share it

Poet Girl Em


his solemn friend
his home
the only place of existence
he wanted to know
the darkened space
where he can face
nothing but himself
away from noise
from pretentious ploys
of social butterflies
suffocating serenity
the voices
paining ears
fraying nerves
sending skin crawling
like spider legs
desperate for relief
restless for respite
away in lonely peace

to be alone

with his own mind
no one to judge him
no one to care
no one to love

shrouded soul
in black
shied away
from life
for to live
meant to know

all that’s lost

as he slowly


~ Emily Clapper
