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.

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...
2. 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...
3. Just My MaskPretending 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."Latest Shared Story
Thank you for your story.
When I was nine years old, I was raped. And it continued for two years. I never told anyone because the man threatened to hurt my family. When I wrote this...
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?Latest Shared Story
For a dad, it's really hard when you’re unable to heal her most precious heart. I read a poem so it can give me ideas on what else I need to say, but what can a dad do if his daughter is...
5. Help MeBe 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.Latest Shared Story
I love this poem. I'm 17 years old, and I also feel that way. Yes, I have a lot of friends, but no one understands.
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....
7. I Am Not
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 poemLatest Shared Story
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...
No one will ever truly know me.
How can they when they never even try?
Because I smile, they assume I am happy.
No one knows me.
I hide behind a mask.
They just never did get it.
No one knows me.
It is a difficult task.
Always there for people, but they are never truly there for me.
No one knows me.
Friendships, I have many.
If I do, why do I still feel alone in this world?
No one knows me.
I guess it is just a curse.
They wouldn't understand.
No one knows me.
They wouldn't care.
They would call it a teenage phase.
The emotionless mask will be up forevermore,
waiting for someone to take it off of me.
No one will ever truly know me.Latest Shared Story
I have never been able to be myself. Everyone thinks I'm happy, but I'm not. I hide alone and pretend to be doing something else. I can't cry; if do i'll be caught. I have to pull myself...
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.
10. 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
11. EmptyWhat 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,
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,
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...Latest Shared Story
I'm not sure if I'm depressed. Sometimes I feel wrong saying I am. Only because nothing terribly bad has happened to me. I haven't been through a close relative dying, I haven't been scarred...
12. The Hidden Pain
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...
13. Heart Of Ice
The beat of rain upon the land
Broken teardrop in my hand
Shattered remains upon the ground
My beating heart the only sound
A twisted tale chiseled in stone
Stories forgotten as the voices drone
Heart of ice, frozen in time
Far away, bells start to chime
The wind whispers through the trees
Voices carried on each breeze
Cries and sobs drown each bell
Secrets kept that no one shall tell
A tear cast aside that came to you
Reflecting anger and lies turned true
A tear that fell, yet went unshed
An unseen symbol filled with dread
Lonesome night to wash away
Heart wrenching pain of another day
The shattered pieces of a broken heart
Sewn together yet fallen apart
Broken tear the remains of a love
That burst to flames sent above
Heart of ice turned to stone
These silent voices start to drone
They tell these tales as though the end
Was at their side until they send
Each tale to lay before these lies
Glittering shards of diamond eyes
This heart of ice is the only link
Chained in black bound by ink
Surviving each day by only a drop
Lest its beating was ever to stop
As each day slowly wears on
The last shreds of hope are long gone
In the fields of glass, of diamond lies
Unseen by all except dreaming eyes
The spirits lie, awaiting the sacrifice
That is to be this heart of ice.Latest Shared Story
I really like this poem. It brings in a lot of memories.
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!
You don't know and I'll never tell,
If you look at me you'd never know what's really inside,
I may laugh and smile,
And you'll think I'm OK
I may act sunny and bright,
But really I'm dying inside,
I'm sinking slowly into a deep dark trench,
I wish begging for someone would show me the sun
To help me battle this thing inside me,
This thing inside me
All I want is someone to understand,
Someone else with my pain,
Someone with my curse,
So I don't feel so alone
I crave to have someone who know what it's like,
Someone who has my demon,
Someone who can fight with me.Latest Shared Story
This is a really good poem. I, too, pretend to be okay when all I feel is an unending emptiness. It's like feeling everything all at once and then suddenly feeling nothing at all.
16. Vandalizing Me
I was happy once
but never again
will I stand for your ignorance
and suffer your pain
I have tried to maintain
the sanity of mind
but every step I take
Is just a step behind
I look out of my window
and plan my escape
But the more I accomplish
the less steps I take
Year after year
I suffer more
Being ignored and hated
is not what I'm for
I am just young
there's no need for my hurt
You've seen me cry but
I'm still treated like dirt
I long for company
From a personal friend
But the more I explain it
The guiltier I am
I haven't a coin
Or a note as such
But a few extra dollars
wouldn't hurt you that much
But the daily abuse
and hatred from you
just gives me more choice
on what I should do
I could easily have
a police man on side
to take you away
so I don't have to hide
You think you are king
But you are just a fool
Who do you think you are
You are so far from cool
You are such a child
a manipulative one
who can't stand a chance
against me and my mum
Yeah serve me bad food
and call me bad names
but I am much too smart
for your childish mind games
You see me whisper
In my mothers right ear
but then you just mock us
and let out a sneer
I am happy that mum
can finally see
that your good for nothing
just vandalizing me....
17. My LifeHell 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.Latest Shared Story

18. 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.
19. I Am Alone
yells and screams,
I'm never wanted,
as it seems.
Wrists with scars that show,
friends are the only ones,
that truly know.
sitting on my bed,
all the screams,
go through my head.
searching for my dreams,
to ignore the screams.
falling, I am lost,
a broken heart,
that's what it costs.
chances I try to take,
but each time I try,
my heart sure breaks.
sing and dance is what I do,
spend all my life,
trying to impress you.
gone, I'm all alone,
no one here to heal,
my heart of stone.
greatness is in my soul,
but when I speak out,
I become a fool.
when I walk by,
they all just stare.
same, I want to shout,
they all fit in,
but I stand out.
running from my fears,
I have no one,
to wipe my tears.
Trusting in my heart,
somewhere in this world,
I'll find my part.
Boom, my heart beats slow,
there will be a time,
when I shall glow.
cheering, I must not boast,
I owe it all,
to my ghost.
smile, I must not frown,
I can't let down.
sometimes I pretend I'm okay,
I hold back the tears,
and just walk away.
so now my heart is stone,
wish someone could see,
that I'm all alone.Latest Shared Story

20. 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.
