Poem: Paths Crossed

I am an introvert, happy to spend time alone with myself and able to feel fulfilled by just a few special friendships/relationships. That being said, i’ve met my share of the ‘wrong’ type of people whose values don’t align with my own. Over the years, i’ve weeded them out and am left with only two individuals outside of my family who i love with all my heart. And that is a perfect number for me. 

There are people who thrive in larger social settings, then there are people like me who prefer to save the best features of themselves with only those they are close to. The world has a space for all of us, and im lucky to have found mine.

As suggested in the poem below written by r.h. Sin, my experiences with others, failed or not, have guided me in the direction i’m currently going in today. For that i am thankful. I’ve included the poem below.

What do you think about this piece? Who are some of your favorite poets?

Thank you for spending the time to take a look at this post. You’re the best! 😋

  1. I know your feelings and feel much the same myself. It’s hard to pick a particular poet from amongst the millions of great poems, but some poems stand out amongst the rest. I think “The Road not Taken” and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” from Robert Frost have themes underlying the direct imagery that I can relate with. Next to that I find poems from everyone from Dickinson to Emerson to Sexton and even Lord Byron that fill that niche.

    1. All of those poets are classics, it has been a long time since i’ve read their work but i definitely will now that you’ve brought it up. Dickinson’s dark side has always appealed to me. Thank you so much for stopping by my page and reading my post, it’s much appreciated. 🙂

  2. I think this poem, while overtly simple, speaks silent volumes about the painful determination required to perform the act of burning bridges in such a fashion.

    No friendship or relationship is light-heartedly snuffed out. There will always be a sense of loss.
