Alone - Poem by shruti modi

In the crowd, I stand alone
Noticeable but unnoticed,
Loveable but unloved,
Caring but uncared.

Certain lines cannot be changed,
People walking together, move ahead..
Find new companions, friends.

Alone do I stand,
With everybody, but without anyone for me
I am lost..fearing, shivering.
Loved ones find new ones to love;
Alone do I live, so will I die,
But cant find anybody for a laughing, joyous journey till the end.

Isolated, over self egoist and sacred
In secured, yes! ?
Where are the friends may I ask, who leave me behind and go
Find new ones and forget the old..

Life I still smile disguising my sadness;
Find me a friend, who understands,
Help my heart which doesn’t trust, trust someone
Wait till believe and make the journey …

    Very well Described, I can connect my self with it as I feel the same. Between the people but still all alone….So Alone! ! !

    Eloquent loneliness. Arnold says,
    'We mortal millions live alone.'
    As for love, trust begets trust, distrust leads nowhere. When there is trust, there is no questioning.

    A fine description of your solitude. The urge to get rid of this has been put in compact but meaningful words.........10/10
    Best Wishes

    only the poet can derive the plesaure from pain
    the feelings woven give a self solace
    that nothing else can give

    but shruti...m sure u don't get stuck in this
    best wishes!

    I enjoy this poem, it shows what happens as you grow older. While in high school clicks begin to form, and you lose friends that you thought would always be with you. (Report) Reply
