Feeling Lonely Poem

This is actually how I feel. I'm always alone, and I don't even know who I can trust anymore.

I am that girl. This poem is me. I am a 14-year-old girl, and I'm alone, with no one to talk to. I have been through so much in my life, and I have learned to live alone, even though it hurts...

And I'm The Girl

©

Published: June 2011

I'm the girl who hides behind a smile every day.
I'm the girl who has a tough exterior,
But that's not who I really am.
I'm the girl who has a lot of problems
But doesn't share one thing.
I'm the girl who keeps everything bottled up.
Sometimes I just need someone to talk to.
Someone to care about me.
Someone to listen to my problems.
Someone to hold me when I cry.
Someone to love me.
Nobody knows the real me.
Nobody knows what I go through every day.
Nobody knows what I have to do just to make it through the day.
Nobody knows that I'm the girl who isn't who I say I am.
And I'm the girl who will cry herself to sleep every night.

I am that girl. This poem is me. I am a 14-year-old girl, and I'm alone, with no one to talk to. I have been through so much in my life, and I have learned to live alone, even though it hurts like hell. I cry myself to sleep, and I hide behind a mask to hide how I really feel. I never tell anyone how much I am really hurting.

All these replies to your poem confuse me. You all feel the same way, so actually you are all not alone. You have each other to share your troubles and each of you understand what each of you are going through. You guys are lucky and should be sharing your feelings and maybe be able to solve your heartaches and turn them into solving them. Wish you guys the best.

I can totally relate to this. Through most of middle school, I have felt the way you felt. I have always felt like I was lonely and didn't have any friends. Anyone who feels the way this poem describes can relate to this very much. Thank you so much for sharing.

Anyone who feels the way this poem describes upsets me terribly. To go through the time in your life when you should have happiness, joy, and fun but instead feel that way, I wish never ever experience that again.

Same story with me. I am 14 so everyone pushes me in corner. I am not a typical 14 year old. I care about people. I don't tell them but I care about them more than others. Ebola? During pandemic others read newspaper and kept it down. I tried to raise funds, but who listens to a 14 year old boy? No one. I have seen uncensored beheading videos. I want to bring a change but after years of bottling up my anger, my sadness, I am starting to drift into depression now. Still I am not brave to show my emotions. This poem truly reflects that.

I'm that girl... :'(
I do have some people who really do care... they are always there... but when they aren't... I have no one

Like you guys said, this poem is so relatable to not only through middle school but throughout life. I have been feeling like this lately, but when people tell me that they understand my problems or that I will be ok and forget it sooner or later then I feel like my words and I aren't being taken seriously. They're just thrown away and their words are put in to my mouth.

I know what you feel and this poem touched me really strong.
I'm 14 years old and search for people where I can share my problems with, and for someone who is trustworthy.

Thank you so much for writing this poem, I feel the very same way :( and I've always felt like that. And knowing that there are other people out there who feel the same way.. Gives me hope a bit :) . . But it doesn't seem to change the fact that I cry myself to sleep or feel suicidal sometimes. It's really hard. And I'm the girl!

Wow... I can relate to every word of this poem. Like others here, I am 14 and I hate when people think that I don't know anything about life just because of my age. I've been through more in the last 5 years of my life than many people will go through in their entire life. So thank you for writing this, it really touched me.

Wow I love this poem. It's still hard to confess I'm that girl even with the poem though.

I so relate to every single word you say, I'm a 14 year old girl who hides between her smile and cries herself to sleep, sometimes I just feel that is why I was brought here to suffer, no one knows the real me not even the people that I call my best friends.

If anyone does understand it is me. I actually wrote a song with lyrics about this very thing. I feel I relate to you in all of this. I have begun to think that maybe I don't know me anymore. Everyone says a 14 year old doesn't know anything I beg to differ. I have been through a lot of tragedies in my life and each one breaks my a little more. I don't know who I am because I have been broken to a point that I can't even remember who I was. This poem expresses everything I have felt for 3 years. So yeah I may be young but death is my life and pain is all that is left.
