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.

  1. 1. From The 12 Year Old Outcast

    • By Kenzie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2008

    This poem is about the struggles I face everyday with my seemingly perfect family.

    The Perfect Family

    My brother the A student/Perfect Athlete
    Beautiful wife and children
    Serving in the army
    The one who calls me 'Kiddy'

    My Father the big man
    The Ex cop/charmer
    The CEO of some big company
    The one who scares me with his violence

    My mother the trophy wife
    The stereo typical stay at home mom
    The hair stylists 'favorite'
    The one who thinks she has the right to call herself my mother

    The Me
    Is Lucky to even get a C
    Not fall on my face during gym
    The shy girl in the corner which no one notices
    The friendless one
    The One who has tear stains on her cheeks
    The one who can't AND refuses to be perfect like her family

    In this family...there's no room for imperfection

    Yet I'm still here...

  3. 2. Daddy's Gone

    • By Sab
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    My dad never wants to see me.

    daddy was never here for me
    and I don't think he ever will be
    he left when I was young
    and never came back
    I do miss him but
    if I did see him again I wouldn't know what to say
    he hasn't wanted me in his life
    so I shouldn't want him in mine
    but I do
    I miss him
    I just want to see him again
    every time I start thinking about him
    I feel angry but sad at the same time because
    I want to see him so badly
    and I want him to be a good daddy but
    I guess that's never going to happen
    because if he did want to see me
    he would have came and seen me
    but he hasn't
    so I guess
    I'm just going to deal with life as it comes
    if I like it or not

  5. 3. Left Behind By Dad

    • By Carly
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2008

    I wrote this poem because its the way I feel about my dad. I live in a family of 10 kids and my parents. We live with mum and my dad lives in another city.

    I was told you love me
    I guess I heard wrong
    I lay here in the Darkness
    All alone
    No one else
    Just me
    Thinking
    Dreaming
    Wishing
    You still were still here
    To comfort me at times like this
    Times of Darkness
    I need you here to hold me when I cry
    To tell me it's ok
    To give me hope for the future
    But it's to late
    Your gone
    You could've been there but you weren't
    Your were off doing your own thing
    I lay here waiting for you to come back
    But you never do
    Day by day it gets worse
    Tear drenched eyes
    Shattered heart
    You may love us
    But do you care what happens to us
    If you did you wouldn't have left us this way
    I still lay here waiting
    Waiting for one thing only
    Waiting for my dad to be a Dad

  6. 4. Empty

    • By Hayley
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2011

    I've struggled with self-injury, anorexia, bulimia, and have tried to commit suicide 11 times...this is what the void of depression feels like...

    What Depression Feels Like

    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 the numbness
    So she no longer has to feel.

    The thick, black cloud overcomes her,
    Smothering her till she suffocates.
    She gasps, while inside her,
    Everything is torn apart.
    Her heart ripped to shreds,
    And repeatedly stabbed,
    With a rusty dagger.

    Her soul screams as the demons rip into it,
    Those horrible monsters.
    No. They're her demons,
    Her horrible monsters.
    She's her own monster.
    The guilt's eating her alive,
    As she slowly kills herself...

    From the inside out.
    She seems fine on the outside.
    The same laughing, smiling girl she's always been.
    The scars she keeps hidden are the only sign.
    A silent scream,
    But no one notices,
    Or do they just not care?

    She's so alone.
    She's always been alone.
    Ever since the shadows ate her essence,
    Sacrificed herself to the cold tendrils of sin.
    False promises tempting her away from the Light,
    And into the barren Darkness.
    She's always so LOST...

    Inside her own body...
    It seems her hands have a mind of their own,
    As they slice her arms,
    Her ankles,
    Her thighs.
    With the blade she's always kept as a close companion,
    The same rusty razor.

    She watches the blood as it leaks out,
    Down her arms and thighs.
    Her release from the never ending cold.
    But it's not enough.
    It's never enough.
    Not when she carries the weight
    Of the world on her shoulders.

    But she knows what is enough.
    She stares at the bottle of pills,
    Knowing this is her escape
    From the Darkness that surrounds her.
    I'd be quick,
    Painless.
    She's already slowly killing herself.

    Destroying her soul.
    No one can help,
    They've tried before,
    And they helped...
    For a while.
    But then she was back to faking her joy
    With the mask that became her best friend.

    She began starving herself.
    She could never look good enough,
    She found joy in each ache of hunger.
    It meant it was working,
    She was going to be skinny,
    But it was never enough.
    How could it ever be?

    When she couldn't resist food, she'd stuff herself,
    Then made a point of throwing up.
    She pushed everyone away,
    Stuck in her solitude.
    Her shadow her best friend,
    But soon the shadow was her.
    A forgotten ghost...

    Just a piece of who she was,
    Who she used to be.
    Left behind as she slowly killed herself,
    She's only a shadow,
    A wisp in the wind.
    Never finding happiness.
    She lost herself.

    With no hope of being found...

  7. 5. Black Dove

    • By Ashley Dillon
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2015

    This bird represents me in a world I don't feel welcome in. This is how I feel. This is me... :(

    Poem About Not Feeling Welcomed

    There sat a black dove,
    dark as night,
    doing wrong,
    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.

  8. 6. I Am Looking At You

    Dedicated to the teens that are confused.

    As I try to change,
    you never see me,
    I stare at you,
    but you never look at me,
    how stupid can I be?,
    all the songs I listen to,
    always remind me when there was a me & you,
    things were not like they were before,
    How you wouldn't even turn your head & recognize me anymore,
    Even though you let me go,
    there's just one thing that you should know,
    When you get another girl to forget about me,
    now your the one who's going to be staring at me,
    watch you'll see . . . .

  9. 7. Just My Mask

    This is a poem about my day-to-day life. I go through my days, pretending nothing is wrong. I am protecting my family and friends from what I feel. Every time they ask how I am, I always reply, "Fine." I never am fine, never good or well. I wear a mask of happiness and joy so they won't suspect the depth or severity of my pain.

    Pretending To Be Okay

    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.

    Don't forget this, my pain is real.
    I'm not lying, this is how I feel.
    You sit there saying it can't be true.
    It is for me, just not for you.

    You say my heart must be a sight,
    Cold as ice and black as night.
    It's not my heart, only my soul,
    But killing me must be your goal.

    You're getting close, I hope you know.
    You really don't have far to go.
    Soon enough I'll reach my end.
    You'll have my soul to tear and rend.

    But you don't know, you never ask.
    You never look beyond the mask.
    The look on my face is giving me away.
    I wonder now, what will you say?

    You've asked me here; you'll know now.
    I'll take it off, I'll take a bow...
    I can't do it now, tell you the truth.
    I must keep up my pretense of youth.

    "Of course I'm fine, why do you ask?
    Oh, don't mind this, it's just my mask."

  10. 8. Imagine

    • By Shelby S.
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2013

    This poem touches on feeling alone. I've felt all these things in this poem and felt like there was nobody who understood or cared. I felt like I had to face things on my own. This work takes a turn for the depressing, but hopefully it will show all you beautiful people that you are not alone. Others have felt these things and will always be there for you.

    Nobody Understands Me

    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 you
    Every day, every hour.
    Forever sinking
    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.

    Useless,
    Neglected,
    Forgotten,
    Distressed.

    Alone,
    Afraid,
    But mostly
    Depressed.

    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.
    You're ugly,
    You're hated,
    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.
    Cutting, pills,
    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.

  11. 9. A World Of Pain

    • By Daniela N.
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2013

    This poem is basically about depression and feeling alone. It's about hiding your feelings from the world and putting on an act every day until you get home and break down. This poem talks about how I feel right now.

    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.

  12. 10. Can Anybody Hear Me?

    I wrote this poem while crying at night and unable to go to sleep. Simply writing down my feelings calmed me. I was angry at myself for being so shy that I had isolated myself from those who loved me. I felt isolated, alone, and invisible. I didn't feel like anyone understood who I really was. I felt hurt because no one really took the time to get to know me. The ones who preached friendship to me ignored me... even on my birthday. Thank God, He is my comforter. And I had His Word that night.

    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.

  13. 11. Not Good Enough

    • By Imza
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009

    No one understands how alone I feel. When you look in my eyes, you might see happiness, but inside, I'm falling apart.

    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 stand the pain,
    A feeling of numbness I can't explain.

    This is a life in which I walk alone,
    Full of hope shattered and broken,
    Always angry for no reason at all,
    Constantly wanting to end this brawl.
    Fighting with myself again and again,
    Sometimes I want this life to end.

    Mom's depressed but chooses to hide,
    Takes out her anger on those by her side,
    Doesn't understand I try to help.
    She shuns me out and hates instead.

    Grandma's enduring an unstoppable fate.
    Sickness has gotten her on the plate.
    It's sad to see such an innocent person
    Become another cancer victim.

    Too many friends are hurt as well
    Thinking that their life is hell.
    Too many friends wanting to stop,
    Thinking suicide is the only option.

    But inside me is the worst of all.
    I don't know how long I can stand tall.
    Memories of happiness are shooed away,
    But horrible twisted thoughts to stay.

    Nothing I do can make her proud.
    There's no silver lining on her clouds.
    I'm a rainstorm filled with dark black skies
    And a haunting rainfall full of lies.
    I only wish I could make her see
    I'm trying hard so I can be
    Someone she that can trust and love.
    Instead, she tells me I'm not good enough.
    Everything I do is a wrong decision.
    She constantly tells me I'm not living
    The path that she truly wishes I'd take,
    But I'm only one big mistake.
    If I could I'd erase myself from here,
    I wouldn't have to live this fear.

    I also wish I could be skinny
    And always happy, fun, and pretty.
    Instead, I look at myself in the mirror,
    Disappointed in the reflection that appears.
    It's hard to live when you don't love who you are,
    Wishing that you could change it all.

    Every day I make a mental note.
    How much would I miss if I decide to go?
    And how much hurt makes me lean towards the edge
    Is slowly creeping up the hedge.
    How much longer can I last
    Before my life becomes one of the past?

    It's about needing a friend, a real one. Of course, I have real friends, but like many teenagers, I don't have friends who understand me. That's basically what I'm trying to say in my poem.

    Be My Friend

    Hear my cries. I need your help.
    Please come save me from myself.

    Be my friend, a guiding light.
    Give me strength to do what's right.

    Find my heart. I've lost my way.
    Tell me I will be okay.

    Feel my pain and catch my tears.
    Help me conquer all these fears.

    Let my silence speak to you.
    Find some way to help me through.

    Put yourself into my shoes.
    And just like me, you'll be confused.

    • By Kayyyyyydia
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2017

    Feeling of having to hide who you are from other people because they won't understand the truth.

    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?

  16. 14. Girl Finally Smiles

    • By Lorene Larissa Georgina Harshman
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2009

    She believed that life truly sucked...But then she gradually started to let people into her life

    She walked around with a tattoo of a frown upon her face
    she thought she had no reason to smile or to even live
    She believed that life truly sucked
    she thought I would never get better ever...she absolutely hated life

    she walked around all alone
    she dressed in so much black nobody would come near her
    she didn't want anybody to dare to get close to her or even try to
    she got hurt so many times she began to hate everyone around her

    But then she gradually started to let people into her life
    she was sick of walking all alone
    she didn't want to be alone for the rest of her life
    she began to finally see the good side to life the positive side to life
    she began to think that life was really not that bad
    she finally started to walk around with a tattoo of a smile upon her face!

  17. 15. How Do You Fail To See?

    Sometimes I feel as if the people who are closest to me fail to truly see the pain I suffer every day. It's hard for me to face each day knowing everything won't be okay.

    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.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2008

    I have been through hell and back. I tried to explain what I've been through in this poem. It's about stuff that no teenager really wants to go through.

    Hell And Back

    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 getting pleased.
    I love that life
    now I'm stuck,
    in this rock.
    restrained from the one I love.
    screaming inside my mind,
    even though everyone thinks I'm fine.
    crying myself to sleep every night,
    wishing the next day my sister might be in sight.
    I was dropped in this town,
    to never be found.
    I was beaten
    I was raped
    I was unloved
    I was refused
    and most of all I was confused.

  19. 17. Inside Of Me

    • By Victoria
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2010

    I wrote this poem when I was going to a new school. I wanted to express myself in a way that I never did before, by reading poetry and singing. To be noticed and not just the new girl.

    inside of me
    there's a girl you do not see
    she's nice, friendly, and talented
    but she'll never be me
    she can "walk the walk"
    and "talk the talk"
    but she's not really me
    trapped, and alone
    she will not be freed
    she's not me and never will be
    trapped inside
    she will hide
    like an bird that can't fly
    she's trapped forever
    never to be released
    by me.

  20. 18. I Am Not

    • By Rachael Weaver
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    I am a 15 year old girl who has gone through a lot in my life, when I was almost 12 my sister Vicki died in a car accident. I've also lost 10 more people in my life since then, its hard and sometimes I don't know what to do so I wrote this for my parents.

    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 good enough
    I'll never be a Vicki, beautiful, loving, and brightly glowing
    I'll never be a Markee whose hard work is always showing
    I'll never be a Crystal who's organized and neat
    I'll never be a Madison who beats everyone in a meet
    I'll never be a Candace who's the baby of our crew
    I'll never be any of them; I can't fill any of their shoes
    I'm just a teenage girl, who doesn't know what's going on
    I'm just another troublemaker who has a thousand cons
    I'm not that good at dance, my singing is just okay
    I'm not the prettiest thing to look at, things don't go my way
    I'm the one in the family who cries myself to sleep at night
    I'm the one who for some odd reason can't get anything right
    I'm the one who feels unwanted and hated by a lot
    I'm the one who takes the blame when someone else gets caught
    I'm the one who feels like me life can't continue the way it should
    I'm the one who let Vicki leave, and she'd die because I would
    I'm the one who can be successful but won't execute what I know
    I'm the one who writes these down; I have nowhere else to go
    I'm the one who can't say this, to my family's face
    I'm the one who's walking at a different pace
    I'm the one who runs away when something in life goes wrong
    I'm the one who's been hurting inside for almost way too long
    I'm the one who can't put into words the way I really feel
    I'm the one who doesn't believe good things are really real
    I'm the one who attacks myself when I go down the wrong road
    I'm the one who has been carrying on my shoulders, on big heavy load
    I'm the one who has tried to change, but can't do it on my own
    I'm the one who is so sorry, so I wrote this poem

    This poem was so touching. I want to say that I know what you are going through, but I can't. I have my own problems that I feel guilty about and wish I could escape them. But I can tell you...

  21. 19. Secret Keeper

    • By Ravyn
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2015

    Well, my name is Ravyn. I'm 17. I've had a hard life, especially at love. It takes everything I have to speak out loud due to fear of abandonment. For many years I have found myself bottling up emotions because simply, I can't trust anyone. One day I woke up and realized that trust does not have to be in a person. I don't have to confide in someone to show my feelings. All I need is a piece of paper. And so, my poetry writing began.

    Poem 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 can't.
    You're just a piece of paper.

  22. 20. The True Me

    • By Jessica S. Bauzon
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2019

    Every day, I hide behind a smile. No one knows how I feel inside. At school, my classmates have new bags, shoes, toys...I never got those luxuries. I feel so alone, like no one understands.

    No 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.

    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
