Isolation

Faking smiles, forcing laughter,
This crowded world is such a torture,
All the stupid, “Hi!”s and “Hello!”s,
The unmeant, “How are you?”s,
Nobody ever really cares,
Isolation, everybody fears.
So, the cold hugs and dead handshakes
World is so full of fakes.

 
In places that are the crowdiest,
Are where I feel the loneliest.
It’s so tiring and heart wrenching,
So, strenuous is all the faking.
I just want to run far, far away,
Be completely alone for a day.
All alone, I feel the most alive,
In isolation I want to dive.

 
Enjoy deep and honest conversations,
With people from my imaginations,
Let my mind soar, far and beyond,
Leave this world’s sly threshold,
Get rid of all the fake socialization,
As I immerse in a beautiful isolation,
Just me, my soul and my thoughts,
Far away from this toxic world.

For, Thursday Poetry Competition! Deadline is Tuesday, so you better hurry up if you want to participate!

  7. Your poem is all about the present situation. So true. We need to find solitude in the midst of enforced isolation with people and neighbours we love and live near, but we just need to have some room to let off steam and be ourselves.

  13. Haha, please don’t do forced laughter! 😅. It’s soo grating to me, actually appears psychopathic sometimes. Like when somebody is doing forced laughter in a loud, conversation-dominating way, I can all-too-easily picture them laughing like that whilst wielding a knife!! It makes that person seem very dishonest and un-trustworthy.

    Equally frustrating is when people actually believe forced laughter! 😆

    Of course, a lot of people actually do forced laughter, and that’s the way I feel about all of them lol 🙄.
