Abstract: In this study, my aim is to look at the world through the lonesome eyes of people. Loneliness is the dark side of the human soul; yet many famous people created miracles by using their deep loneliness. When they suffered from loneliness in shadowy depths, they became the voice of other lonely people. By writing, they succeed to make people hear their screams come from the broken side of their hearts. There have been many writers and poets who suffered from loneliness during all their life, and I choose two people among them in order to reflect the dark side of their worlds. They are Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath. Loneliness cannot be hidden in hearts. It comes out with miracles. Human nature finds its meaning inside the soul, and if this soul is punished with loneliness, writing is the only cure to escape from this punishment.
