Short Sad Poems

Sad Short Poems about Life

Sometimes you don't need to write a lot to express a feeling. This category is for sad poems when just a few lines will do. Feelings are not complex. When we allow ourselves to feel them in a pure undiluted way, we often begin the process of releasing pent up sadness. When you want to tell the story and the reasons behind the feeling, that will often turn into a longer poem. Both of these styles of telling are equally valid. It is simply a matter of what needs to be expressed in the moment.

  1. The Perfect Little Town

    Appearances Can Be Deceiving

    The little town was the perfect little town,
    Where never would you see even one little frown.
    No matter where you'd go around town to stroll,
    There were perfect little houses, all in a perfect row.

    She is outgoing, I am shy.

    What's the point of celebrating
    When the ones you loved have gone?
    It's only the beginning of another year,
    Another year of struggling alone.
