Alone Poems by Teens
Poems About Teenage 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 your 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.
44 Teens Write Poetry About Feeling Lonely
1. PainThe Pain Of Depression And Being Forgotten
So many tears no one can see,
So many people I'm supposed to be.
So many problems with no one to listen,
So many eyes that lost that special glisten.
So many aches nothing can heal,
So many smiles, each one less real.
So many lies, no one knows the truth,
Only once did I lose my youth.
2. Black AbyssSadness From Friends Turning Their Backs
I walk this black abyss
With no place to go.
It's surprising how I miss
All that I used to know.
All my friends have left me
Because of all my needs.
So I said, "Fine, just let me be.
You never even loved me; you're all just full of greed."
You wanted me for my money
You left and crushed my soul.
So here I wander, lonely,
In this dark, sorrowful hole.
I guess if it lasts forever,
I know soon I will be fine.
But till the end of my days
I will forever do my time.
So here I wander lonely
In this dark, sorrowful hole.
3. The True MeNo One Knowing How You Feel
Why do you stand around and watch me cry?
Don't you see me in the corner of your eye?
I'm in so much pain, don't you see?
Why do you just stare and watch me bleed?
Nobody knows me; I feel so alone.
They don't see what talents I've shown.
Why doesn't anyone truly understand?
I just want to be part of your band.
Nobody cares that I always cry.
It makes me feel like I wanna die.
I just ask one question of you.
Why do you do the things that you do?
I just want to make people smile,
To stop the pain and sadness for a while.
Nobody sees the things that I do...
Nobody knows the me that's true.
The true me stays forever hidden.
I only reveal it when using my ball-pen.
Everyone says the real me is weird.
It's like the true me has been sheared.
Why do I feel the way that I feel?
Because of those who make my nightmares real.
My friends and family don't know at all
Right now I just wanna curl into a ball.Latest Shared Story
Never change your originality
For the sake of others
Because no one else can play your role
Better than you
So be yourself
You are the best
The me you see is not the real me.
This isn't who I wish to be.
I hide the pain, I hide the strife.
Honestly, I just want to escape this life.
You'll never know the pain I feel.
All my happiness you'll try to steal,
But yet you say you love and you care.
I don't know how much more I can bear.
I'm running from this world,
Still wondering when my voice will be heard.
You keep saying that I'm selfish, dumb, and cruel,
But can't you see that I will never let you win this duel.
Now there's just one more thing that I want you to know,
And it is that I will never let my sorrow show.Latest Shared Story
I was really amazed by the level of sorrow in this poem. It truly touched me. Sometimes I, too, feel myself in the same condition of loneliness and sorrow. This poem reminded me of my blue...
I try and try, but no one can see
That I'm hurt, that I'm broken,
That I'm not even me.
They think I'm fine
Because I tell them those lies.
I tell myself I'm okay,
But inside I want to cry.
No one understands,
So I will just keep quiet.
My words mean nothing.
They don't buy it.
I whisper, trying to be noticed,
But when I get their attention
My fake smile returns
And I am once again that bubbly girl
Everyone yearns to know.
I'm afraid that my feelings will scare them away,
Make them wake from their fake world of perfection.
My dreams have been shattered
By reality long ago.
Why mess up their perfect lie?Latest Shared Story
I can relate. I used to have this friend. I am not very outgoing, to say the least, and so I never really made any friends other that her, and she knew this. Last year we were placed in...
6. DisappearLooking For Someone Who Understands
It seems that my only option is to cry,
But day by day I keep asking myself why.
Why am I always sad?
Why am I always mad?
When will somebody understand the pain I go through?
Can't anyone just hug me and say, "I'm here for you"?
Hold me close and say, "You can cry on my shoulder."
Give me advice and pull me closer.
I need someone who knows how it feel to want to cry all the time,
Someone who knows the real definition of "I'm just fine."
I'm tired of crying because I feel alone.
I need someone who knows how it feels to be alone.Latest Shared Story
Sorry you feel as I do. It's not good to feel alone. Remember it's not only you, but together we stand. Remember, we're friends.
Poem About Those Closest To Us Not Seeing Our Pain
How is it I cry all night,
Yet you still believe everything is alright?
How can you not see my pain
When it is clearer than the rain?
How can you not see my world ending?
How can you not see my shattered heart that needs mending?
You won't be there to catch me when I fall.
It seems as if you don't care at all.
You can't understand this pain I feel.
It hurts so bad it's unreal.
I know you truly do love me.
What hurts is the pain that you fail to see.
How can you not see that when I'm writing poetry
There's pain everyone failed to see?
The pain I feel is very real,
But to you it's no big deal.
You just fail to see
What's really wrong with me.
Poem About The Hurt Of Being Isolated And Alone
I want someone to hold me,
But I'm the only one here.
I want someone to listen to me,
But I'm the only ear.
Can anybody hear me?
Does anybody care?
Does anybody even know
I'm dealing with despair?
There are voices in my mind
Saying I should die.
Will anybody even tell me
They're only just a lie?
Does anybody love me?
Would they shed a tear?
Would anybody even care
If I were to disappear?
The ones who preach friendship
Have left me all alone.
The ones who are not here
Promised not to let me go.
Can anybody see me?
Does anybody care?
Does anybody even know
The burden that I bear?
I've built up this wall
To hide who I am,
And now that I need help,
I'm alone behind it all.
Can you see the real me?
Will you even try?
Can you even tell I need
A break in the wall tonight?
I'm crying all alone,
Not sure what to do.
Please just let me know
That at least I still have you.Latest Shared Story
I've been the same way, but you are never alone. God is there for you, Your friends and family care, even if they don't know the best way to show it. People are there to help you; you just...
9. Black DovePoem About Not Feeling Welcomed
There sat a black dove,
dark as night,
though knowing right.
Its nature is bad
but not by choice.
How would you feel
with an unheard voice?
It hates the world
surrounded by love.
Its only wish
is to be a white dove.
A symbol of hope, honesty,
peace, and devotion.
It just wants to be happy
and escape this commotion.
Instead, all the world does
is turn away,
and every silver lining
fades to gray.
Expected to be seen
but not heard
is a painful thing
to this lonely bird.
A black dove
sits and cries and sings
as it recollects
all the heartache life brings.
10. SuicidalPoem About Not Wanting To Be Alone
Her cries and her pleas
To, just for once,
Be as everyone else
To, just for once,
Not be herself
She's alone in this world
No one to call friend
She'll be alone in this world
When she comes to an endLatest Shared Story
Yes it really did touch my heart. That's why I am starting a group called 'The Survivors'. It's for the people that have been bullied and mentally, sexually, and physically, abused.
11. Secret KeeperPoem About Expressing Emotions
You hold all my secrets
Now that he's gone,
A simple phrase or emotion held for days,
To you, it don't matter how long.
My true feelings, emotions I never show,
I tell you and learn which way to go.
When chaos takes place, I don't cry anymore,
Now I can let it go.
I simply say I'll tell you later.
I know you won't tell anyone.
You're just a piece of paper.
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 lonely nights I lay
Staring at these blank walls.
Hopeless sleep with no means to an end
Keeping me from the monsters within.
Tragic flares and dreams down the drain.
The nightmares I have bring me the most pain.
Wishing for the truth, but only finding lies.
The secrets I try to keep behind
My dull brown eyes.
My tears won't stop, I can't keep fighting.
I'm losing all hope of ever finding.
I don't know who I am; with everything going on,
I've lost myself in this midst of a crowd.
My heart can't take this never ending pain,
With every word they say I feel like they drain.
My dying, beating heart that has nothing to gain.
The stares I receive like I shame them so bad,
But the truth is that I only wanted to try,
Try and fight for what I had.
Now here I am, with this lonely broken soul,
Awaiting my faith in this pitch black hole.Latest Shared Story
Such a touching poem. I love the diction used. It really creates an atmosphere that rhymes well with the subject matter.
Poem About Pain And Losing Hope
Each night I find myself sitting against the tree,
Hating myself, locking my heart and throwing away the key,
I sit there and wait, just hoping for the someone who may care.
No one ever comes, nor will they, I am aware.
I sit beneath the weeping willow.
Its leaves and shade make my soothing pillow.
Aye, my tears are just fuel for my restless dreams.
Then again, my existence is nothing as it seems.
It all began from a time I am unaware.
I had no friends, no love to share.
My heart shattered, the core went rotten,
My happy days long since forgotten.
My desire in life is simply to die.
I'm sick and tired of having to be in agony and cry.
My parents, family, classmates, they just build it.
They look at me as a mistake, best to fix it.
They hand me the rope and the chair with a smile.
They play it off like they care for a while.
Then they shut the door and sit by the bay,
"Whatever happens, happens," they always say.
The disappointment on their face when I live,
I must be a curse they seek God to forgive.
I'm constantly belittled and told to die.
The moments of love they give are but a lie.
Father who art in heaven, why must I suffer more?
Why have you made collecting my tears a chore?
How have I deserved this? How have I failed you and what must I do?
What more can I do just to please you?
Make this stop, let it end.
Give me love or just a friend.
End this nightmare just for once, even for a moment.
Just stop, stop making everything my opponent!
I cry every night and fake every day.
I make people happy with the words that I say.
Why can't I just sit back and be happy or glad?
WHY MUST YOU ALWAYS MAKE ME SO SAD?!
No, you don't care, just like the others,
Just like mother, father and his brothers,
Just like my crush and my exes whom I love.
You're just toying with me, laughing from above.
I'll never get better, this I know.
I have no people to love, no paradise to go.
Perhaps my life will end soon so I may rest.
Let's cross our fingers and hope for the best.
Well it's a long way down to hell when you're alone.
Although my life isn't much worse, no one cares to pick up the phone.
Perhaps I'll just stay here while the world becomes a hate billow,
Just stay here...with my weeping willow.Latest Shared Story
It was one word...DIVINE. You might think you are forgotten, but your poem will never be forgotten. It will forever sing in our heart. You are a talented poet and you should never stop....
Poem To A Friend Suffering Pain And Depression
I look deep into your eyes
but all I see are lies
where there was hurt and suffering
there's now a black hole of nothing
I don't know if I can save you
after everything we've gone through
but I'll try
until the day I die
because you deserve so much more
you're someone worth fighting forLatest Shared Story
I've been dealing with depression for the past three years and suicide is a big thing for me. Thank you, this poem means a lot!
15. Day By Day
Yelling, screaming--that's what I hear
No noise of laughter, not a sound of cheer
Every word spoken comes out like a punch in the face
Everyone looks with such disgrace
I runaway to hide because no one should see
That this, this is everything I wished it wouldn't be
I want to be different, I want to know why
Why lately I am scared and all the love has died
This is supposed to be fun, a safe place
Instead we fell apart, like a shoe without a lace
I wish I had someone to understand, someone to tell
Instead I just endure this seemingly endless hell
I want to go; not a soul is to know
But soon the scars will be sure to show
My mind resists return, no one will care
But day by day I find myself there
An empty house is not a home
But with people it is a mess to crazy to comb
I want to quit, I want to give up
Yet still I go back and hope for a tearless cupLatest Shared Story

16. DiamondsPoem About Building Emotional Walls
I built walls to the heavens made of diamond.
I sit in my crystalline castle as workers reinforce the walls with steel rods.
My new home is unbreakable.
I do not like guests; they are forbidden here.
My quarters are so indestructible that they are known by the gods.
My new home is unbreakable.
I need more diamonds.
They need to build the walls higher!
My new home is unbreakable.
Years have passed. My icy walls are complete.
Now I sit alone; just me, my steel, and my diamonds.
At least my home is unbreakable.Latest Shared Story
I can relate to this poem on a personal level. More often than not, I shut people out to protect myself, but then I realize that I am left alone with my own thoughts. I just want to say...
17. A World Of Pain
I'm living in a world of pain.
I'm living a world of hurt.
I'm living in a world of sorrow.
Hiding behind a wall,
I fake a smile and cover my scars,
Hoping to hide all emotions from friends.
I hide my pain behind a fake smile,
my scars under a jacket,
and as for my tears,
I just hold them in,
waiting till the night when I can drown my sorrows in a pillow.
I am alone in this world.
A world of sorrow and pain.
A world of disappointment and grief.
I'm stuck in a horrible world,
and I don't know what to do.
18. ImagineNobody Understands Me
Alone in your head.
You're hanging, dangling
From a silver thread.
With the monsters within.
You just want to give in.
Now imagine that's you
Every day, every hour.
Like a wilting flower.
You try to tell your dad
And you try to tell your mom,
But they say you're being silly,
You've just got to move on.
Because teens don't know sorrow
Nor the hardships of life.
They're just kids with imaginations
Just looking for attention, right?
You think that there's none
Who knows how you feel.
You're just so alone,
But the feelings- they're real.
And you're friends,
They go on
Like nothing has changed.
"They must not care,"
Your thoughts whisper,
The lies in your brain.
You can't escape it,
Trapped in your own skin.
But you mask it with a grin.
You hate what you feel,
So instead you feel nothing.
Your insides are numb,
Your confidence crumbling.
You look to other things
To stop the pain.
But it gives you no gain.
And the people around you
Shout abuse your way.
"You're hurting yourself, stop it!"
That's all they ever say.
No matter how you plead
That you're broken inside,
They turn the other way,
They run, they hide.
They say you're just foolish,
It's all in your head.
What they don't know is inside
You're already dead.Latest Shared Story
This poem is really amazing. I am 13. My mother never understands my feeling. I find it very hard to understand what I am feeling. Actually, I do know it deep down but refuse to accept it...
Have you ever felt so ignored,
Bringing back the memories,
The times of a dove
Push your way through it all.
Your wanting to end it,
because you're just so small.
People tell you no,
But you go back on your word,
You're just another girl!
Crimson stains the floor,
Screaming at the door.
Hiding everything isn't wrong,
But when it comes down to it.
You wish you had gone.
Alone in a dream,
Back in insanity.
You shattered all around,
Your heart hit the ground.
That painted smile,
That bruised cut,
A line of enjoyment,
Shown a little to much.
Beauty can't be skin deep
Not if the skin...
is marredLatest Shared Story
I know how you feel really, I have had a painted smile for two years, it's really bitter.
20. Masked Emotions
There is something about me
Everyone wonders what that could be
could it be my smile
what about my laugh
or the happiness I bring
To me it's all fake
Nothing about this shield is true
My smile is frowning
Laughing comes out as weeps
My happiness is always sad
The story about my life
Has never been said
Everyone loves my mask
They tell me they love me
I can't believe them one bit
my emotions are all fake
I don't want people comforting me
For the way I choose to live
It's my life
You can not lead it as you choose
Though I wish you could
