Anatomy of Sadness

After my recent post ‘Anatomy of Happiness’, here’s a poem I wrote that describes sadness, because life is a roller coaster…

 

The feeling you get

That you’re all alone,

In a desert of misery

No one to call

Where reducing to tears

Feels like the only way,

Just bearing this feeling

Day by day

You turn to people

But they’re not there,

You try to run

But you don’t know where

No glimpse of a soul

To set you free,

For miles and miles

Only darkness to see

Hours fly by,

It just gets colder

Your continual tears

Long for a shoulder

The spirits of the air

It all feels like lies,

You wish it were a dream

When you opened your eyes….

  1. I AGREE WITH YOUR LINE “LIFE IS A ROLLER COASTER. BUT, SO FAR WHAT I HAD UNDERSTOOD IN MY LIFE IS, SOMETIMES YOU CAN “LOVE” THE STUFF AND DOING THE THINGS. AND ALSO CERTAIN POINT OF TIME IN LIFE, YOU SHOULD BE READY TO “ADAPT” AND GO FOR THE THINGS.

  2. Dear Saania,

    Yes, life is a roller coaster – we have our movement between ups and downs and often feel alone, even misunderstood – it seems that there is not a real bridge from man to man – but this due to our mind. On the level of the soul, we are all one and when we have a deeper look at the word “alone” then we are the drop and the Ocean at the same time: alone and al-one, better to say: all-one. We are under control of our mind but when we speak from our heart, this language is understood everywhere – we do not need a translator (our mind) for it. Mind often comes with expectations and when these are not fulfilled according to our wish and imagination – we feel disappointed. So expectations and disappointments go very closely hand in hand. Mind also chooses, says I love them but not the others. So we include and exclude people according to our mind – but when we start living to love all in loving God first, automatically His whole creation is included. Nevertheless, we have to differentiate: To love God in all, but we may not love the tricky mind in people.

    Thank you so much, my dear friend.
    Have a great time

  3. There is no antidote for sad. It is an integral shade of the soulful individual who feels for his/her surroundings. It is a grey day to be followed by a wonderful one. Hemmed into the fabric of our experience it is to be valued …. then ushered away out the door 😊😘
