The Pit Of Solitude

Poetry

An eerie silence has trapped me,
All I can hear is my own echo.
Into a pit of darkness,
I feel the gravity pull me.
“Can anyone hear me?” I scream.
“Can anyone hear me ?” It reverberates.
“Heyy,” I scream once again.
It again echoes, my futile attempt.
I feel so lonely and cold in here.
Does anyone know, Iโ€™m not there?
But in this world, does anyone care?
Somebody does, somebody must,
I keep repeating it on and on,
In desperation, I cling to hope.
The eerie silence teases me,
The darkness tries to embrace me.
“Nobody cares,” they tell me,
Again, and again, they remind me.
“I do,” I finally retort.
One person, I truly trust.

      1. That’s cool. I meant the ending lines ought to whom. “I do,โ€ I finally retort.
        One person, I truly trust.” In these lines and I came to many conclusion for these lines. So just for clarification.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

      And about the book, I’m too fickle minded… I did start a book after you told me to… I wrote two pages and, few days later, it didn’t feel like a nice book. So, no book. But I’ll definitely write one, and dedicate it to you! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜โฃ๏ธโฃ๏ธโฃ๏ธโฃ๏ธ

  8. You have such a beautiful way of capturing those fleeting moments that hang in our lives like long years. The intensity and strength of the emotions you convey are powerful and rounded.
