The poet knows the feeling of being lonely – hence the many poems she writes on the topic.
Loneliness hits one hard. We are as humans inherently social beings, so even the most introverted of us need each other.
Being lonely can lead to depression, anxiety… K-M Skalkenæs has tried it all, and that is exactly the reason why she writes about the topic. It is important to her that people are aware that they aren’t the only ones to feel that way. That they know that the feeling is totally normal, and that it is possible to treat it and get past it.
