Never Really Alone

low angle view of man standing at night

I see the two of you smiling

And laughing

Walking hand in hand

It’s like a cheesy romance movie

Makes me sick to my stomach

I can barely breathe whenever I see you

And yet I can’t stop watching

Following you every single day

Sometimes I have these dark thoughts

About what I would do

If I can get you both in my basement

Maybe it will be easier being a widow

Than a divorcee?

About “Never Really Alone”:

This poem, “Never Really Alone” was inspired by this song:

As anyone who has ever had the experience of reading my poetry will tell you, I am always drawn to darker themes. And I can never resist as dark twist. It’s just the way I write. And the song I linked above along with a handful of reddit AITA stories helped me realise that some people will really do anything except accept that their relationship is over. Seriously, people would rather be a widow/widower than be a divorcee which is so bizarre to me. I mean not really, I guess in their head they don’t expect to be caught. But still. Come on.

Anyway, before I get derailed as usual I just wanted to get into that headspace of someone like that. Someone who would rather be in prison than alone. And soon it become more than just about a poem. It became about the thrill of wearing another persons skin (I’m totally kidding!). If you don’t get that reference:

  1. I don’t know from my own experience but watching the folks I met, it looks like the stigma of being divorced would do that to you. Once again, just watching this crazy life like a movie…

    1. Life really is crazy and yeah I think there’s so much stigma behind divorce even though it’s usually the best option for some.

  2. I had to read this poem a few times just to really let it sink in. This is lovely in the sense that it resonates with the psychologically disturbed parts of my mind. Yet I realize it’s not healthy to view relationships in that manner at least for me, but everyone has their own reservations on that.

    Also, I find it enlightening that the poem as well as the videos made me deeply contemplate the things that I consider right in terms of relationships as opposed to that of others view on certain topics.

    However, I am curious as to what made you think up such a poem and do you enjoy the twist of things or a different headspace, because it feels like a candle that’s about to ignite? Slowly with little smoke and small flickering of embers until it illuminates the area it is in?

    1. Thank you so much. Yes, I think if you enjoy darker themes poems like this one can be interesting.

      Hmm that’s a good question. I’m going to have to think about that one.

  3. I guess there are people who really think they can get away with it. Or fancy they can get away with it. Criminals are not really normal people. I think at least once every two or three months, there will be a new murder case in the news to fascinate people…

    1. Yes, I think murderers minds just work differently than ours. It’s fascinating to most people since they don’t understand the motive that well.

  4. Sometimes dark thoughts are so satisfying 😁😉
    Love it, Pooja. The twists add such a delight to your poems.
    Lovely 🤍

  5. Great post Pooja! Your this post reflects a lot of things to have a look on! Great😊👍👏
    By the way a very happy women’s day with lots of respect to you and all the womens in this world 💕🙏

  6. I like the build-up to the climax twist. Well done. Yeah, easier being a widow especially with a good insurance policy. So onward to the perfect crime. Some policies will not pay in case of a divorce, I think, or maybe if it’s in a pre-nuptual agreement.

    1. Thanks so much. Yes, a good life insurance policy for your spouse helps in these sort of situations lol. You don’t get the money in most cases though if you’re divorced.

  7. Emotional complex relationship stuff is kind of unknown territory for me, so your poem’s scenario is very frightening.

  8. I didn’t expect it to end that way! It’s pretty scary that some people think and react as described in your poem. I guess we have stumbled as a society.

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, it really scares me that people would resort to so many things before just accepting that their marriage is over. We’re definitely stumbling.

  9. I like your cheesy romance thriller. They are often good but it just depends on what kind of cheese.
    Divorced from reality is such a simple thing. Mom loves you so much at the hospital and then when the Father abandons her, she leaves you in the cold on a random stranger’s doorstep, rings the bell and runs. So she is surprised when you become a serial killer, not knowing that your foster parents are psychopaths. But they are good teachers. Love, marry, divorce, kill. Of course. Obvious, right?

  10. you are too funny Pooha.. ” became about the thrill of wearing another persons skin (I’m totally kidding!). ”
    “Maybe it will be easier being a widow Than a divorcee?”
    let us know how that works out for you.. 🤣

    1. I like your interpretation of it, I think it’s always interesting to see how other people think about the poem since we all see it differently.

  11. This poem reminds me of the Silence of the Lambs, wearing someone’s skin, but who knows what’s in the darkest part of their mind until something happens to them, whether it be divorce or otherwise. Anytime someone is hurt deeply, I believe it can make someone want to be in another place than being alone to suffer hurt.

    1. Oh yeah, I can’t believe I didn’t think of that. Silence Of The Lambs is one of my favourite movies. That’s true, sometimes we don’t want to be alone when we’re devastated.

  12. That was good. I’m a huge real crime show watcher and I have heard of so many cases where people frown upon divorce. Some have different reasons as to why but the one that I don’t understand is, their religious beliefs frown upon divorce. They don’t want to divorce because of their religion but murdering the spouse is okay? I just don’t get that at all.

    1. Yes, I’ve heard about those cases where someone would not get a divorce because of religious reasons but is fine murdering their spouse. So bizarre and a good example of how religion can be misused sometimes.

  13. Hi Pooja,

    So I read this poem when you published it.
    The dark theme composition of the poetry gains more weight than the positivists approach.
    Maybe because we have given too much emphasis on “seeing the good of the good”.
    Life exists somewhere between black and white.
    A balance of thoughts with comprehensive approach needed.👍
