Popular Isolation Poems
Summer
by Louise Gluck

Remember the days of our first happiness,
how strong we were, how dazed by passion,
lying all day, then all night in the narrow bed,
sleeping there, eating there too: it was summer,
it seemed everything had ripened
at once. And so hot we lay completely uncovered.
Sometimes the wind rose; a willow brushed the window.

But we were lost in a way, didn't you feel that?
The bed was like a raft; I felt us drifting

Journey
by Julius Doogan

I was walking down the street the other day
I’ve always tried to conceal myself,
but today everyone wears a mask

I was surprised by how many people there were
Everywhere I turned
I had to avoid
Another person
Another mask
Another question

sidewalk
by Bogdan Dragos

I am a sidewalk

one upon whom your
feet dragged heavy and
wet and tired

and I wonder where you
are going
and where you're coming
from

Bridges
by Richard Kigel

Words are wonders,
Building bridges, crossing canyons,
Meeting minds.

Words unite us,
Tie together threads of thinking,
Merging lines.

Words make meaning,
Understanding,

The Journey
by Kay M. Sutton

I travel towards the mountains, showing splendour and grace.
The silence holds no boundaries only time and infinite space.
Mysteries are abundant, with nature all around.
A solitary figure, listening for the sound.

Echoes, echoes all around from the sound of my voice.
The mountains deep and mysterious offer little choice.
Feelings of isolation creep upon me for a while.
But the solitude goes, and I give a little smile.

Pig
by Noah Trist

Bleached stained floors stagnate in its eyes.
An eerie oink barreling at the walls,
To hung is to be more delicious.
This little piggy is less than me

A shaven beast waiting for the taking
Glistening skin under juicy meat
The pig doesn't want to die
But i want dinner

We are one and we are weird
by Julius Doogan

Listen to my fears
We are one and we are weird
drowning in the rain
Two and two are quite the same
We all wanna hide
Or shrivel up and die
It always seems the same
Like a broken window pane

Wash it down with beer

Fade away
by Julius Doogan

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
