HOMESICK

It’s like I’m in a different world
Homesick, lonely, aching,
The world goes on, without me,
I lie here, not even able to imagine any more, paralysed in my mind,
Hopeless, helpless,
Watching you playing, with the eyes of my heart,
I live in the past now, remembering,
But even the remembering hurts,
Perhaps I had better not remember,
For then I was part of something,
Now I am not,
Then I could relate,
Now I can’t,
I read your words, see your world, hear your moans,
With envy, jealousy, disdain,
For you cannot taste my food,
My banquet,
We cannot share, pass the cakes, the cruets,
No seasoning can blend our lives into a world of taste, and sound, and sight,
I am forever lonely,
I was once like you

  3. You aren’t alone. Hugs!
    You are super woman, you are shining brightly everyday. You are strong and brave, and you have faith that will always keep you going.❤️ Sometimes we do slip in isolation, even I do the same but it’s okay, this is life and we all will survive this beautifully.❤️

    Thankyou so much Sameera. In the poem I was writing about the isolation of blindness. You are kind of in a different world. A different reality. Cut off even in a crowd, people do not talk to you. You are in a workd of darkness. It is physical, but it becomes mental isolation too. Hugs Sameera. Your words to me are so beautiful. Love you gal xo

  5. There is so much depth and beauty in all you write, sweet Lorraine. Feel sad for all these troubles. Please take a big hug from me and many, many, many prayers for love, light and sweetness to envelop you – in a way that nothing of this world – that is and that is not — even matters.
