Being alone in a crowd

Updated on October 29, 2011

Feeling alone in a crowd,

despondent, disillusioned,

unaccessible, unsocial,

unnoticed, forgotten.

Voices lost in the wind,

air current, idle words,

voicelessness, conflict,

sound reflection, whispers.

Eyes averted by the gaze,

facial expression, visage,

deuteranopic, visual sensation,

unperceiving, vision-less.

Too numb to touch,

impinging, desensitize,


unprocurable insensible.

Where I stand casts no shadow,

presentiment, concretism,

embodiment, physical structure,

life principle, boundary.

    Wow! Exceptional vocabulary. I enjoyed reading this. We are all alone in a crowd at some time or another. These words really hit home.
