Disharmony & Despair: Disconnection
By: Skinner J.Tyler
I recently read a poem that someone published on WordPress and it inspired me to create a prototype poem of my own. I don’t often write poems but often enjoy their integrity and rhythm. This is my entry into the difficulty of finding a partner who is committed to working things out rather than trying to get out.
Now I understand we all have to do what is right for ourselves but it seems like we tend to give up on other people rather quickly and I don’t think this is healthy for ourselves or anyone else.
"Disconnection, lost our first romance; time, while we did our first dance."
"She said this, he said that; and later wished, to take it all back."
"Feelings, doubts and fears unknown; has caused this couple or love, to fold."
"Despair and anguish are felt true lies; while we dance with another, another dispise."
The poem is a reflection of our modern way of easily moving onto another partner (lover) so easily, it causes doubt that there was even love to begin with. Instead of taking time to work things out or try to understand what the other person is feeling, we give up and move on; as if it meant nothing but total disconnect and disharmony.

This can’t be healthy for anyone and seems to only cause more confusion when experienced. It leads to despair and feelings of insecurities that result in total lost. I’m not saying everyone has to stick it out under all conditions but have you ever stopped and thought, “Did I really give it my all?”
