The Path of Solitude – Poem by Atenéia Araújo

The Path of Solitude


The path of solitude

Perhaps it was just a bad dream.
I believed it was real.
But nothing was true.
There was no love.

I’ve been told so many lies.
I’m crossing the path of solitude,
where the darkness will receive me.

This solitude is so familiar,
but at least nobody is
telling me any lie,
misguiding me.

How could I believe in you?
How could you make me
waste my time and
believe in all your lies?

The path of solitude
is the only one
I’ve known all my life.

No more appear before me,
I wish it had been just
my worst nightmare.
