Alien

A Poem by alienated.aquarius
"

abduct me please i'm ready to go home

"

I was once told,

You’re not crazy for seeing the truth

The rest are fools

The lies convinced them.

 

But if they won’t believe me then

This planet is no home for me

Even gravity gives up on me

We never really got along

 

This world is too big and too small

I’m always uncomfortable

It’s like I missed training week

When I was hired to be human

Full of pretending and posing

The hypocrisy of it all

 

I feel like Lilith reborn

Doomed to be demonized

Forever ostracized

Left out, left behind

 

There’s not enough privacy in the world

Everything is overwhelming and

I can’t cope if I have nowhere to go

Earth is not meant for me

I can’t go home

But I can’t stay here

There’s been a mistake!

I’ve been given the wrong brain

It’s playing tricks on me

It’s not supposed to be like this!

What’s happening to me?!

Get me out!

Help, I don’t belong here!

This was a fun read and yet I felt some seriousness going on. I can't speak for every human, but there are times I feel alien to this planet and wonder when someone is going to come get me. After being here as long as I have been, I would never apply to be a human here, given a second chance.

This is a super fresh way to show how it feels to not fit into the throngs of purported "normality"! I have felt like a misfit all my life, but I always felt my not fitting was my problem or my fault. What I love about this message is that the narrator is not taking any of this personally. It just is what it is & she's outa there becuz it doesn't fit. It took me 50-odd years to finally get to that point & I'm always proud of you & other young people for getting it much earlier! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

as the title and your screen name suggest, this is quite an expression of alienation. perhaps the most alienating thing about it is how it's an obvious cry for help, "Help, I don't belong here", yet the cry goes unnoticed in lieu of your writing ability. maybe you're too real and it irks people so they focus on the quirkyness of it. but i think all fear is rooted in alienation, so i appreciate expressions like this. few people ever take the time to view my writing as my own alienated feelings too. i've learned to appreciate irony.

very good, It makes me think of the X-files, I'm not sure if you ever watched that show but it's really good. I also love aliens and space stuff, so this was a very interesting read for me putting that with the feeling of isolation and difference.

love the part about the training week to being human. Yes, we get no manual with rules and guidelines...we have to just try to wing it....and it is not easy...but maybe there is no mistake..just a getting used to...getting the handle on things...
