Tired of being messed around
And treated like a fool;
Tired of trying to find firm ground
And those who play it cool;
Tired of giving all I've got
And listening 'til I ache;
Tired of ending up in knots,
From attracting only fakes.

There must be something wrong with me,
Always ending up alone.
The ones I care for, leave me be
And never even phone.
Self-inflicted isolation,
Seems the only way -
At least in meditation,
I keep demon thoughts at bay.

My own company, I'm used to
But long for something more;
Not sure what else is left to do,
I'm tired of hitting floor!
A smiling face on show to all,
They think I only sparkle;
Do they know, like them I fall,
From the problems that I tackle?

But smiling I find easy,
Even when it hurts
And when it's not so easy,
I resort to being curt.
Not sure what else is left to say,
I think I've said it all
But I witsh that I could find a way,
To make my life a ball.

Excellent first post imho. Welcome to the Passions in Poetry forums.

Being a hermit isn't easy (no pun intended). Casting one's bread on the proverbial waters looking for special friendship can sometimes also be - how can I say it? - unexpectedly difficult, for a variety of reasons. Don't give up, though.

Thank you very much Easy1, don't worry, I don't give up easily.  Many of my poems are darker than this but they are just "snapshots" in time.  Somehow by creating something out of my down-times, lifts me and enables me to move on.

Thank you so much for reading, for your welcome and for your kind words x

Hi Pixie Wales, I loved your poem, it reminds me so much of my younger life,when I went through similar experiences.Your poem reflected your unhappiness hidden by a smile, when I know that hurt has cut deeply.Keep writing your poetry, it will allow that hurt and frustration to pour out.Then when you least expect it your world will turn around, until that day turn that abundance of love you have to yourself for awhile.much love jennywren

I wanted to post last friday, but better late then never. When I read this poem it was like hitting a wall.( Maybe a bad example.) I was just sorta shocked by how powerful your writing was. I was also surprised by how much it reminded me of my own poems.
Even though I typed all that my REAL comment is as long as you never give up. No matter hopw many times you hit the floor, always stand back up after.

My own company, I'm used to
But long for something more;
-- I loved that line, I understand that completely...

I loved the whole thing!

Wow!  I'm completely taken aback by all of your comments! Thank you all so much.  You have all made my year!

Your comments mean so much to me that I cannot express it fully here!

My very best of wishes to you all and I look forward to speaking with you all in the future and reading more of your work.  I have been in awe of the poems that I have read on here so far!  

I'll be logging on whenever I can but no longer have my own internet access so it will just be "as and when" until I've sorted a few things out.

Thanks again, Pixie x x x

Feel the pain in this write,as so often your words match mine.Life is so very hard,
as we climb the walls in this society.
Nice write :}
