alone II

all alone
where are you?
i look
yet see
no one.

how can it be
that i have
so many
people who
and yet

i feel


  1. Most people are some kind of alone, because we are all unique and no matter what kind of support we have, at the end of the day we are the ones who need to face our challenges -- ourselves. Alone.

  2. Yes, I think that is the most precise definition of loneliness: people around you, but still alone.

    Awake, but still in a nightmare.
    Hoping to wake up some day.

    People around helpless and clueless.

    When I once said in a spanish class in spain that my definition of "loneliness" was "being among people, but still alone", they looked at me in awe and asked me: "Are you a poet?" I said "No, I went through situations like this." And then, stupid me, I wanted to have them again, those siutations, because it is so poetic. And hashem listened to my stupid whish. And 1 year later I went back to crises, but only for a short time, thanks to help of a friend.

  3. I know that kind of loneliness. It hurts. :(

  4. Yeah I remember saying once "You're never as alone as when you're among people who don't care that you exist."

    Different sort of feeling than the one discussed here, but I definitely felt poetic and eminently quotable ;-)


c'mon, i know you're reading this! what do you think?
