the sound of silence grows,
every minute feels like a hour,
every hour feels like a day,
as i sit in in the cold light of morning;

its far too late, too lateAlone in the Crowd
to pick up my heart from the floor,
as it lay in pieces,
right where you threw it yesterday night;

little by little,
strangers became friends,
friends became lovers,
and suddenly, lovers became strangers;

i am lying here,
lying next to where you left me in pieces,
can’t move, can’t scream,
with only silence for company;

the tick tock of the clock and,
the beat of my heart grows louder and louder,
shrouded by a mystery,
i feel so alone;

as the melody of love fades into the distance,
the screams of silence is all that remains,
lost in the shadows of life,
i am here, Alone, in a crowded room!

    Very beautiful explantaion of the word ‘Alone’ caused by separation from a person who was the love of the life. Loneliness really kills sometimes and we feel like screaming aloud even if we are surrounded by huge crowd.

    Hi, I don’t know who u r?? But i know u through your poems. And i don’t feel any kind of hesitation to say this, ‘I want to kiss your hands’. Your poems….. i m speechless for that. I m so touched, i can only feel it and sometimes extreme feelings can’t be expressed in words. It is possible only when one is good poet like u, i m not. Good bless u.

    Thank you Heather.

  • Heather said: (Tuesday February 7th, 2012)

    One of the poems i wrote was called Love. It goes like this,
    You love one person, but you also love another person, soon you’ll find yourself in a situation where you love 10 different people. Out of the 10 people is the person you love and churish the most, the question is, who is it?

  • Ashitha Nair said: (Thursday February 9th, 2012)

    This is a very great poem I like it:-)

  • nancy walter said: (Sunday April 15th, 2012)

    I too write poems and music lyrics instead of screaming for help when the walls fall in around me. It’s a process of loss and trying to move foreward when the world looks at you as a magnet of strength and endurance. I hide in my poems and cover the darkness with fine words and silent dred that tomorrow is another day.

  • saleena said: (Thursday April 19th, 2012)

    really good… but have to do imaginery words to it.. then also nice… touchihng also… we all feel like this like alone or solitude in crowd… is it… because we are different from others … take care bye.. and keep writing good….
