Poems about Loneliness

Being alone is one of the saddest conditions for a human being to experience. You may feel alone with your family, if you think that no one understands you. Often people are afraid to share who they are because they think that they will be rejected. However, if you are not sharing who you are, you are not truly with the people you love. On the other hand when you share you true self, you risk being rejected. Often individuals seek people out of the family unit with whom they can share themselves without fear of rejection.

    Each night I find myself sitting against the tree,
    Hating myself, locking my heart and throwing away the key,

    No one ever comes, nor ..........

    Imagine yourself
    Alone in your head
    You're hanging, dangling
    From a silver thread

    Empty, alone
    With the monsters within
    Internally screaming
    You just want to give in

    Now imagine that's ..........

    I help you through hard times, as you do I
    But you really don't know how much I hide
    Even though we are the best of friends
    I really don't think you can understand
    I can't bear the hurt, I can't ..........

    Of course I'm fine, why do you ask?
    Oh don't mind this, it's just my mask.
    It hides the grief, it hides the strife,
    I wear this mask, to escape the knife.

    Slowly I feel myself breaking,
    My knees feel weak; it seems I'm shaking
    My arms are tired and my legs feel numb
    My mind in a haywire and I want to run

    Stress is building, tears still fall
    My ..........

    The beat of rain upon the land
    Broken teardrop in my hand
    Shattered remains upon the ground
    My beating heart the only sound
    A twisted tale chiseled in stone
    Stories forgotten as the voices ..........

    I was happy once
    but never again
    will I stand for your ignorance
    and suffer your pain

    I have tried to maintain
    the sanity of mind
    but every step I take
    Is just a step behind

    I look out ..........

    Her thoughts bob under the surface,
    Her lost dreams circling around her in clouds.
    Every fake smile, fake laugh,
    Only feeds the emptiness inside.
    She's lost the ability to cry,
    Surrendered it to ..........

    I'm lost and confused,
    miss-treated and miss-used,
    Raped and abused,
    Unloved and refused.
    I was always being excused,
    I started doing drugs,
    Dating some thugs.
    I was being a tease,
    and ..........

    I know I get angry, I know I rant and scream
    But all I want to do is wake up from this dream
    I try to stop being rude, I try to brush things off
    But it's hard to do all this when I feel I'm not ..........
