Inside the Mind of Isadora

Friday Fictioneers – Forever All Alone



Darkness covers me, like a blanket
Shadows, surround my thoughts
My arms wrap tightly round me
Deserted, no ones home
You keep me isolated
My only friend, just you
Smiles ne’er intrude our space
With you, I’m safe and whole
The thorns of my emotions
Keep rising from deep inside
Always in your shadows
Always in your arms
I cannot see the rose
Only thorns of pain
Madness all around me
Keeps me huddled tight
Tomorrow, won’t be different
It will always be the same
Fear keeps me shaking
My spirits tattered, worn
Darkness gives me comfort
Forever, all alone

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. Beautiful touch. Expressed very well. Reminded me of my mother and her swing, now hanging alone.

  2. Lovely introspective piece, Isadora. I really get a sense of the isolation, coping with it an emotional and physical level and how all of that feels in the darkness. Very well done.

  4. I’m glad you wrote about the isolation of the chair. Your words made me feel lonely and sad. Beautifully done.

  5. Melancholic reflection, but it’s good that you wrote about how the picture made you feel, rather than what you simply saw. I like that.

  6. Not the obvious direction at all. And that’s what makes it even more intriguing. Sad, the walls that we build. Or simply get used to. Beautifully haunting poetry.

    • I’m putting together a few things to create a book. I’m looking into my options.
      I think it’s time. I’ve been writing for a long time. Your loyal following helps to spur me on.
      Thank you, Gilly, for always being very encouraging.
      Hope you have a relaxing and peaceful weeknd

  10. Good, tight construction and so well-put. I could almost put a character in that poem and see her do interesting things.
    Gee WHIZ, that was a downer! But a well-written one. 😉

    Tengas un al fin de semana excelente. 🙂

    • Super comment there for my peotic words this week. Yes, the isolated chair seemed a bit ominous. The perfect setting for a sadly dramatic story.
      You might say I was having an urban moment and poetry fit the strategy. Gracias, mi amigo ….

    • Querida Rochelle,
      Si es muy triste. 😥Gracia por su abrazo. 😍
      The isolated chair had a ominous feel for me. I went with the feelings.
      I don’t usually write poetry that much but lately I’ve been doing a bit more of it.
      It was a lot more difficult to get to 100 words. I’m pleased you found it to be lovely.
      Thank you … for visiting, your kind comment and for hosting FF.
      Abrazos y carino,
      Isadora 😎


I'd Love to hear what you think. Thanks ...
