I read someones poem this morning about being lonely!So i wrote this...

These Silent Days


These silent days
Enduring forever
Time so precious
Lost treasure

Loneliness continues
No one near
Maybe a lifetime
Maybe a year

Patient i am
Companion one day
Never really knowing
What can i say

My heart says yes
My mind says no
My life ~ My hope
My time to grow

Some days are sad
Tears falling
Heart full of aches
Depression calling

Being alone 
Deprived in some ways
Waiting and waiting

These Silent Days~

This is Good, wonderful flowwwwwww.. and I can feel your empty sad feelings... Do something with a friend, that will bring smiles to your face again...It can't hurt, Love and friendship is found EVERYWHERE!

Michael, think hard and fill these sad days with something you want to do, that is Important to you or see a friend and make great memories while you can~
Just enjoy!
Whoever inspired you with thier write, their was a reason - YOU felt it and you felt it strongly. YOu wrote it from a dark sad place, now reach out and have some fun, while FREEDOM is calling YOU! or do something that will put a smile on your face, with something you want done or to do~

How sad. One can be alone, yet not be lonely. Never allow time to slip through your fingers. Life is so short as it is.
Be safe,

such a lonely and sad write my friend! I agree with Crissy, I do think that we have all felt this way at one time or another in our life. My days are so full and so hectic that when I get a little quiet time I savor it! But, I can relate to those whom have too much quiet mom has lived alone for nearly twenty years after the last of the siblings were married and moved out...she enjoys some days of quiet and solitude, but on other days, she gets out and goes shopping, calls all her kids, sisters, and such...enjoyed this it was a beautiful write and a glimpse into a lonely place!

You're right, this is a very lonely piece. I think we have all felt this way at times and your discription of this is perfect.
Sometimes, it's in our most shadowed moments and darkest hours when we think there is no hope and no one to help.
I have been alone a long time and can relate well to this magnificent piece of work.
Excellent job.
Much Love, Crissy

What can we do about silent days? A lot, I would say, for one can certainly fill ones day with a whole heap of interesting things. For instance, learning a foreign can be fun; then how about learning to plan an instrument, such as a piano? Oh my, now that is a challenge. Then if you'd like to try refinishing a piece of furniture, that can be therapeutic...then what about a room than might need repainting. Oh, I'm getting excited about the things one could do. So to you and the other person who inspired you to pen this write, I say silent days are golden days. They are days when you can challenge yourself and your brain in ways that might surprise and inspire. Now, there's something to think about, eh Michael? :)

No one tortures us more cruel than ourselves.
The poem points to those that don't know how to cope with solitude, only those that were left really alone can.
A sad feeling...waiting.
Well said.

Indeed we've all been there..there are many causes..primary one being loneliness..however when we finally become AWARE of inner reasons for depression it DOES wane. one must never seek the cure OUTSIDE of one..the cure is WITHIN us. I know..been there done that..just shifting one's energy transmutes depression into joy. Try it!
Chocolate does help!!! LOL:.
let's lift our spirits..and BE who we are..Lightbeings having a depressive day..all in the game of life.:)
Blessings Michael..

"But I trusted in Thee, O LORD; I said, Thou art my God. My times are in Thy hand..." (Psalm 31: 14, 15)
I like this a lot, Michael. It's a glimpse into loneliness, yet I can sense the hope implied by "waiting and waiting" and "my time to grow." God speaks to hearts in their alone times when they are willing to be still and quiet.

You have captured depression with a masterful pen! I have suffered depression for many years. I have good and bad day's. Writing poetry has helped me alot, just getting my feelings out in the open where I can deal with them, and not hidden away in the shadows. Excellent write Michael ,on a sensitive subject!

Blessings to you,
