Feelings of Abandonment

By Rosie Bourget


The need for human companionship is universal

We feel better when we live in close proximity

Humans are creatures of community

And we literally need each other for companionship.


Sheila says,

Being alone is such an isolated lifestyle one can experience.

She feels abandoned in her despair

She has been like this for years

While her smile hides her tears.


Sheila says

She is lonely

She never could get close to her family

Her wish is to find a compatible friend

Who can understand her acute pain.


Sheila says,

You can have all the money in the world

But if you don’t have anyone to share your life with

If nobody values you

You have nothing.
