Alone Poems

Poems About Feeling Sad, Alone And Depressed

Being or feeling alone is one of the saddest places to be. You can have all the money in the world but if you don't have anyone to share it with, you have nothing. The need for human companionship is universal. In ancient times, people stuck together because they literally needed each other to survive. In today's world, we tend to spread out and live more isolated lifestyles. In some ways this is a luxury. In other ways we had it better when we lived in close proximity. Humans are creatures of community and need each other for companionship.

My Mask

My smile hides my tears.
My laugh hides my screams.

Mask

Having nobody to comfort me,
So I wore a mask that always smiled,

You pass me on the street and out eyes briefly meet.
You hold the door open for me as I enter behind you.

Be Silent With Me

I walk on a path deep in a forest and the noise of loneliness fills my head.
I think of all my friends and family that are long since dead.

I listen to the wind blow through the trees, on my face I can feel the warm summer breeze.

The loneliness is getting to me too. The worst part is I was always that friend that helped others in their time of need. But when it's their turn to repay the favor they don't pull through.
