A Poem about loneliness

"
Windowless Room

I sit here, a single tear fills my eye
the realization that this is my life 
the way I am now,
 is when I'm at an all time high
music paints my plain walls
clothing hides my empty tomb
I feel submerged in water 
like returning to the womb 
the walls close in 
this windowless room

Life has a way of taking our dreams
it has a way of hiding our screams
it has a way of sheltering our fears
but there is no defence from our tears, 

They escape the spherical cage 
journey down our face
unleashing our emotions 
putting us in our place
for this is my life this is as good as it gets
what I live for now 
I can't have regrets,

I have running water 
I have plenty of food
money is not a problem
but here I am glued
I still can find a fault
for I am alone in this windowless room
my body,my shell is my occupied tomb 
music is playing I see the waves
I feel it crashing 
my ears are its slaves

I may seem to be living
but I'm dead inside
so in the corner of the windowless room
that's where I hide
I harvest my thoughts 
I spread my feelings
but I have a secret

I am the Windowless Room

You described this perfectly. Even before you reached the last lines, it was clear in the forlorn tone and descriptions of the subject of the poem that there were many parallels between the room and the subject. Emptiness and loneliness are something I believe all of us are forced to battle at one time or another in our lives, so this poem is highly relatable. It's ironic to think that while many of us are that windowless room, or have been, we were all linked through our emotions. This poem really finds that dark place inside of you and brings it to completion. Well done.

Oh wow.
This is definitely my favourite of your poems so far.
It's heart-warming to read the reviews and hear exactly what I was going to say. I've felt this way. So we're not alone. Because everyone's been there. And I'll remember that next time.
There are no words to express how I love this poem. You've got talent. :)
Great work.

Wonderfully haunting and deep. The idea of loneliness is well written here. And I know I can relate. Well captured, nice flow, and forever a true fact.

I can relate to this - I, unfortunately, know how it is to feel so alone that you feel dead inside and somewhat trapped... I think you have conveyed this idea of loneliness wonderfully in this poem. Nice write.

Absolutely haunting....you write from the place that I mostly write from....

I was feeling a bit like this earlier this morning. All alone and isolated while surrounded by comfortable surroundings.
That feeling of being dead inside is so dark and depressing. You've captured the essence of the feeling so well in your poem.
