Poems of the Lonely

With a Mask in Place

I was alive
I had a soul
I walked the halls
It was so

But i was killed
Date unknown
I have no tombstone
And mourners none

But my body remains
An empty shell
That walks along
This is hell

A broken smile
And a mask in place
No one noticed
A death took place

the title of this is “With a Mask in Place” u want an interpretation. im stating my loneliness n it symbolizes such. the end with my ‘death’ meaning i am lonely and my friends do not notice, n if they do they do not seem to care, n whether or not they r my friends. yadda yadda yadda. all it is, is me showing my loneliness by saying that i ‘died’ (a metaphor for how lonely i am, how i feel unwanted, and my accepting these feelings as normal occurrences) and my friends not noticing. and the mask is how they don’t notice n e thing is wrong, they can’t see my loneliness n all as if i am wearing a mask over my face. and i use the word hell, but i mean it as the place n saying that loneliness is torture as if i was (guess where) in hell

    I’m feeling it. Isn’t it beautiful how poetry can set us free even when the rest of the world does not seem to notice or care? Stay strong my friend, and keep writing.

    Its a beautiful way u’ve put your emotions…..I’m going through the same phase…people call me selfish but they don’t even want to listen to me because it would ruin their good mood!

      Sorry, the author did not want his/her name shared so I can’t give you that person’s name. You could probably just put “anonymous” and a link to the poem page.

    do you know if s/he is published?
