Introspection Poems

Popular Introspection Poems
of Heart and Head
by Max Godstone

As I sit firm and while away the hours,
Within my dark and isolated sphere.
My thoughts bloom slow like sad, forgotten flowers.
No lightbulbs light, no brilliant flash draws near.

I always thought my mind a source of pride,
Intelligence and rationality.
The things I felt, they were just things to hide
away, not part of my reality.

If I should not be…
by Sumi Iyengar

If I should not be..
A kidney, a liver, blood pumping through veins
Reading Darcy’s letter, a tear down the cheek
A nightmare, quickened heartbeat, sour patch gummies
Is this me, would it matter if I should not be…

A memory, a fall, a chuckle, groped on the train
Stitches across the chin, dried rose petals inside a book, favorite blue scarf
Emotions, feelings, thoughts, regrets
Is this me, would it matter if I should not be…

Thoughts
by Hemangi Mali

With my head pressed against the window pane,
Sitting alone, I watch it rain;
With the thoughts that run through my mind,

Hundreds hitting at the same time.
Some split away,
While some squander,
But most of them are left to ponder.

Thoughts that I once let others know,

Something About The Waves
by Nancy Nile

It was something about the waves
Rising strong and tall
Breaking soft and small
A sense of calm my body craves

It was something about the reflection
A distorted being holding me captive
A version of me that speaks in cursive
It’s easy to forget the mirror too is broken

Introspection
by Omar Abanouas

I look up to the sky
No matter how hard I try
It always reminds me
I’m not a perfect guy

I raised my eyes
They met glowing trails
Gliding in the starry skies
They set my heart ablaze
Then I lowered my gaze

Metamorphosis, interrupted
by Anjali Pathiyath

I sometimes dream I am a caterpillar
who forgets to grow into a butterfly.
I burrow into leaves, breaking through their delicate venation.
I funnel my uncinate feet through curling petals,
I glide through the pungent weeds of uncertainty
and hang from gossamer threads of doubt.

I sometimes dream I am a caterpillar
blending into the mossy greens growing on decaying walls,
lost in the intricate forest and counting the unseen stars,
