Alone Poem

I'm Feeling Alone Poem

This poem is about feeling very alone in the world. Like someone turned off the lights and has me walking the streets with nobody besides me, just wanting someone to hold me, so that the world doesn't seem so dark and depressing inside me. So that I could feel some kind of hope that someone does care about me.

Hold Me

© Chula
I'm hurt all the time.
I don't want to cry for the way I feel inside.
I just want someone to hold me...
I'm alone in the dark, please try to find me.
If no one cares, I don't see a point to go on.
Anyone find me! Anyone care!
I'm sorry, I just don't want to be alone anymore.
I feel unheard and unseen. Depressed and weak.
No one cares and yet I'm always the sorry one.
Someone find me! I'm scared.
Please hold me until it all ends.
Just hold me that's all I want.
I don't want to be alone in the dark.
Just hold me as I start to disappear from the light.
Just hold me as I start to cry.
Just hold me so I wont be alone inside.
Just hold me so I don't do something wrong.
Just hold me so tight, that for a moment I could feel the light....

  • sometimes I feel like no one understands me I read poems to vent my feelings I write them too but I don't really like how they sound but these poems make me feel like I am not alone I love reading poems like these because every one thinks I'm a laughing loving and smiling girl but I cry a lot I tried to be emo but I hate pain so I know that that's not for me I put on a mask because I cry a lot and although its not recognized I do feel like no ones there but these poems somehow just comfort me. I don't think I'm a dark soul cause I'm naturally sweet and nice but I love dark poems and dark everything I mean my favorite color is pink but I love black nail polish and black eye shadow I am very weird I like being weird its keeps me different from everyone else but I would like to thank you for these poems that make me feel like I'm not alone

  • thank you for writing this poem. it means so much to me. I can feel it inside. I'm so depressed and alone. I thought I loved someone, but nothing ever works for me. I just needs someone, something, to stay with me so I'm not so alone. I know that's what you said in your poem and it feels good that I'm not alone even though I'm still alone. but I'm still so sad.

  • Very nice poem. Thank you for sharing it. Recently divorced after 32 years, I'm just starting to realize how much I, too, miss being held and holding someone who needs me. Your words feel as if they came from my heart. I wish you good fortune in finding that person to hold you and be held.

  • You know, this poem just really hit home with me. I'm married and have children but my wife pushes me away, I have no one to talk to, confide in, vent to or anything. It seems funny that here I am a man and I, too, just want to be held.

  • I cried, I don't cry often. But I could help my self when I read it. IDK what to do anymore. Sometimes I get the feeling that none of my friends really care about me. Sometimes I go weeks with out getting a call or text from anyone. And no one remembers to invite me to hang out. Why do we all want to feel like someone really cares. We sit and wait for a hug or a kiss, but the day ends and there is nothing but an empty chair

  • I feel like I don't have friends anymore, they seem to be okay even if I'm not around. I feel like everybody just turned their backs against me. When I read this poem, tears just went down... I couldn't help it.

  • Ever since I lost my grandmother, I have felt empty inside. It seems like the only person who truly cared for me is gone. My relationship with my partner is not good and we always fight. This poem reminded me of how special my life was when she was alive. I just don't seem to have a purpose anymore and I can't go on.

  • I've been married going on 11 yrs. and recently she told me she doesn't love me anymore. She says she doesn't want to get a divorce and that falling in Love with me again was possible. So I've made up my mind to do all I can to win her heart back but it seems the harder I try the more she pushes me away. Sometimes when I try to tell her how I feel I break down crying and she shows no emotions. I've never been one to cry in front of people including her. There has been a couple times she seems mad or annoyed. In Love or not, how can anybody see somebody hurting and turn a cold shoulder, especially your spouse... I don't have anyone to talk to. I feel so lost and empty. I just want someone to hold me.

  • It's so horribly ironic. I feel alone, like I'm underwater and everyone else is above, and I cant swim out. and so many other people do too, but I've never met a single person who feels like this. not really... It's ironic how, when we all post something on this page, we all feel the Exact Same Thing. but I can't find anything to help it..

  • Well this did touched me because when I was somewhere at 9 years old I was feeling alone at school even at home !!!! I really did not have that much friends. Sometimes I know how those people feel they feel alone. Sometimes I feel like people push me away. but when I heard this poem it made me feel like I'm not alone.

  • I have been married 30 years to the same woman. There were problems all the way through our marriage, but I always remained committed to working them out. For the past ten years or so, however, I've noticed my wife is gripped with fear that everyone around her means her harm, myself and our children included. She has reacted in violence at times (hitting me) and at other times, she just pushes us all away, by withdrawing her love and showing us distrust and anger over everything we do. Most nights, she just goes in her room, closes the door, and ignores us. My children (now grown), some of whom still live with us, go to their rooms to avoid the coldness and stress of the atmosphere in our home. I have the lived the life of a lonely bachelor for ten years. I sit in the "living room", alone each night, slowly dying.

I have spent awhile in a foster home and now I am back homeee...but things still aren't right...I try to get away every day but sometimes you can't just runaway from your problems.....but besides that I have someone I love a lot which is my foster mom...and she was there for me and now I cant see her a lot and it hurts me so bad and every last word of this poem is exactly how I feel. EXACTLY...I just love it...<3 you are very talented thank you..

  • Well after reading this, I also cried like most of them, I'm 24 yrs old and still alone, nobody cares about me nor my friends nor anybody seems to understand my problem, all makes fun of my problems what I have and the situation I'm going through, I have never got the true love in my life, I was in love with a girl hoping she loves me a lot, but she didn't she left me one day making me cry, and leaving me all alone she doesn't cared about me, she doesn't even want to know how I am. She betrayed me and she left, before she came in my life and after she left I'm all alone through my life just was with her for few months, I thought we can make it but she didn't turned out at all I cried a lot I pleaded her but she never came back, now I'm left all alone, what ever I try or even attempt to live again I'm always getting embarrassed by the world, leaving me not fit for any thing, I don't know my life seems to be dark and will I ever be able to live happily I don't know

  • This poem is so on par with how I feel. I started crying when I read it. I had a dream last night and in the dream was a song. The lyric "even though I'm all alone, I'm still waiting for you" stayed in my mind so I goggled it and found this beautiful poem. Nice to know I'm not the only one with this overwhelming sadness. Good luck to everyone looking for someone to hold them. I know I need the luck too :(

  • I have so many friends yet feel so lonely. People think of me as one happy, very social girl. IF only they knew...I'm tired of putting up smiles even when I'm not okay. I've gotten so used to saying that I'm just fine even when I'm not okay. I don't know till when I'll keep on wearing this mask. I hate it when night time creeps in because that's when I feel so alone and lonely, uncared for and unloved. I'm so good at uplifting people when they're feeling low about themselves yet I can't do the same for me. I yearn to be held and loved. I yearn for someone to talk to and confide in. My relationships never seem to work because I end up withdrawing from my partners. Don't know why I find it difficult to let people reach out to me.

  • I was in a marriage that was the most cruelest time of my life. After finding out that he was having an affair I tried to commit suicide that was not successful. I wished that I died that day. I do not want to live anymore and know the word loneliness. I am so tired and everything is hurting, life is hurting

  • I'm 16 years old and writing poems is what I love to do the most.... It makes me feel so fresh after finishing one like all the weight I've been carrying around just vanishes.. I've written about love heartbreaks loneliness anger etc.. though I mostly write about my life how people don't see the real me they just see the me they want to see and its aggravating

  • I must be the loneliest person on earth. Friends always ditch me, my parents stay far, I have no one to share my feelings with. No one understands me. I wish I had a true friend whom I could share my problems with. Sometimes I feel that life is playing a practical joke. Being left all alone is the worst feeling ever. I wish I was dead.

  • I think I'm the most unwanted person . Never have I had this feeling so strong. but know each day every second every instance makes me feel stronger and stronger that no one loves me... Wish the day comes soon when the journey of this life comes to the end... Oh god please ensure no one shreds their crocodile tears on my funeral... Please get my end closer very fast.

  • I find this poem helps me explain how I feel. I've been trying to find the words and ability to understand these feelings and its hard. In my search I usually find "talk with a friend for support" or "lean on family", but I, like many of you it seems, don't have these luxuries. This poem is the first thing I've found that helps me. thank you

  • I was feeling exactly what you wrote in your poem. I was hurt but I didn't want to cry. From past few months I am alone and depressed and I just want someone to hold me. I don't feel like going out or socialize ...only what I want is someone who can hold me tight when I am low. All my thoughts my feeling are expressed by your poem....This poem gives words to my feeling. Thanks for your poem. I hope someday we all will get someone who can hold us tight when we are low.

  • Much like the comment made by Scarlet Murry, I am 13 years old. I am very sad most of the time, because I usually see how all of my classmates have their best friends and loved ones to get carried through their hard school lives, what with mean teachers, tricky tests or quizzes, and more. Unfortunately, I don't even have family, because they don't seem to want to pay any heed to me or my problems. When they do, they say the same terrible, boring advise like broken records, and even my brother, whom I've felt was the closest thing I ever had to being a friend, I can now see is slipping away as he matures more. Friends are a vital part of life - to help you grow and relate and socialize and discover. I don't have that. None of it. I don't possess the smiles of those happy to see me, those I can leak out my emotions to and make my dark, endless sea of sadness and depression full of some cloudy light. I don't have people that would fight for me, and defend me from a world that is hopeless and seething with monsters of dehumanization and social isolation.

  • Thank you for your poem and for all of the people that replied. I have been married for 12 years, but feel utterly alone. All I yearn for is to be held. To be wrapped in the arms of my husband. The person who is supposed to love me and make me feel safe, but this never happens. Instead I silently cry myself to sleep at night. If it wasn't for my daughter, I wouldn't be here wishing someone would hold me. Instead, I try to be strong to take care of her and make her feel loved like I long to be.

  • I loved this poem. I feel so alone and depressed all the time. Sometime I wonder if I will still be here if my daughter is here. She is my back bone without her I don't think I will be here. I am alone and depressed and angry all the time. And this poem felt like it was telling my story.

  • Thank you for this poem. You may not know it but reading all these comments below your poem really helped me just now. I especially related to John from Tucson Arizona, I'm married and have 4 kids and it just seems as though everyone in her family is more important than me. Her sister, mom, and dad. Where do I come in? I'm just tired of masking my feelings by crying alone all the time when everyone is asleep. She's cruel sometimes without knowing she's doing it and it just gets old when you always apologize for your part of arguments and she always thinks she's right, never apologizing back for her side. Anyway, thank you for your great poem and thank you John for your story above, Goodnight.

  • It hurts more when you have people there that don't see the signs or hear you when explain your pain. Alone and lost sounds better then being in a sea of people and no one hears or sees you drowning.
