Isolation Poems

Popular Isolation Poems
a note from the netherworld
by Miki Vermeulen

The overwhelming feeling of panic and regret
before my eyes fell forever,
was the worst pain imaginable.

You couldn’t see it then
but there was happiness in the shadows
and love on its way to you.

The world was sending you laughter and smiles,
you had so much life to live.

Isolation in a crowd
by Corben Bruce

Isolation in a crowd

We laugh, we smile, we joke
We weep and hug and cry
Jokes and joy,laughter and love
And still alone I feel all night

I know that together we all are
But still as one I feel at heart
Unsure of myself, unsure of my place

Words
by Sheila M. Taylor

Words cannot explain why Gerald lives in isolation, on the street amidst abundance, while chilling winds envelop him.
Nor can they satisfy the cramping hunger that forces baby Rachel's pathetic whimper nor do they alleviate her pain.
Words are unable to rationalize the need to steal, to hurt, to maim or justify aggression against our fellow man.
Nor can they capture the moment when a ray of light touches a delicate rose as a hummingbird savours candied nectar within.
Or the aftermath of a frenzied summer thunderstorm as a quiet sunset brings a calming peace blanketing the land.
Words can tell of the marvels of nature, the power of the churning sea, of the dazzling stars and distant moon, but do I comprehend?
It is when, alone with the universe, words mysteriously touch my soul, awakening exquisite rapture or devastating pain.
And in my fragile world, miracles happen, spirited by words heard, written or seen, stirring my imagination, encouraging dreams.

On The Porch At The Frost Place, Franconia, N. H.
by William Matthews

So here the great man stood,
fermenting malice and poems
we have to be nearly as fierce
against ourselves as he
not to misread by their disguises.
Blue in dawn haze, the tamarack
across the road is new since Frost
and thirty feet tall already.
No doubt he liked to scorch off
morning fog by simply staring through it

Fade away
by j d

Chiseled faces, to meet and greet
Jumping out, beneath my feet
Tortured souls, of pain, and anguish
Searching for something lost, and sacred

Pain all in my knees, and my mind is just as weak
Glad that I can see, but wishing I could speak
Alone in a crowd just staring at the clouds
Deathly afraid to speak my thoughts aloud

I am Chained
by Aras Acolipeps

Inside of this room, I am chained,
confined in these walls, my mind is constrained.
Echoes of seclusion, a taunting refrain,
slowly, steadily, slipping, I’ll wane.

Inside of this room, I am chained,
invisible bars, my youth detained.
Shadows flicker, a mockery of pain,
in this dark stillness, I remain.

Inside of This Room
by Aras Acolipeps

I’m alone in my room,
And it feels like a tomb.

There’s deep and there’s empty.
It fills my small belly.

Like diamonds and gold inside of my ears.
Like salt and sweat, mixed with my tears.

The lights are low and it’s dark and cold.

In The Darkness
by Marcus Malkowicz

As I lay in the darkness
Wide awake
Trapped in my thinking
As I feel unwanted

Selfish thinking I know
Desiring the embrace
Though what I lack
The pain it brings
