A GLITCH IN A WORLD OF ERRORS

A GLITCH IN A WORLD OF ERRORS

A Poem by lua
"

an anomaly

"

being alone is not

defined

by the bodies of people that accommodate the space surrounding you

 

it is not a feeling of being small

oppressed in a convoluted shell of features

it is as though a bubble has inflated

encircling you

the surface impenetrable,

so densely present it

skitters

between reality and illusion

 

a feeling of physical distance from people

displaced

misplaced

even though they may be

next to you

holding you

 

you daren’t speak the words that reside on the tip of your tongue

for they will echo,

linger

inside the bubble

the vast,

desolate space

they will not be heard by anyone

 

even if you scream

 

loneliness is not isolation

I am not isolated but

I am lonely

I am of a ghost realm

a glitch

that ended up here

"you feel physically far away from people
displaced
misplaced
even though they may be
next to you... "

must consider all of these above lines one of my many fav. how true it's sayin' that loneliness is not isolation, it's something that makes us sad. your line reminds me of my own dialogue of my debut novel am workin' on: "depression's not sadness, but something you can't define."

excellent work here. so touching, & captivating for sure!

thank you :)
I love your use of "the bubble", it captures loneliness really well - the feeling that you can't reach out of it, and no one can reach in. It's so isolating, so confusing. It represents well the drifting feeling you get, when you are stuck on the sidelines and surrounded by those who can't see or change it.

This Poem has a connection and that connection is the person writing it. I feel the pain that's in the poem. Sure it might be words but words have feelings and this one stuck me.

thank you so much for reading :)
I love that (I guess) personal touch. The poem really feels like you expressed your feelings, very pure indeed. I must say I like the 2nd part the most, especially the sentence: "You daren't speak...". Keep up the good work! Sincerely yours, Jules.
