About the Poem

I wrote this during a really low time in my life when I was contemplating suicide. Even though I seemed ok on the outside, I wasn't on the inside - I felt lost and alone.

youre poem Nearly Unnoticed is the best one that I have read in ages, I love reading and writting poems and I used to think that they were to depressing for others to read,but then I started reading others poetry and found that its not what others think its what you feel P. S I hope to read more of your poetry in the future!

This poem hits me hard, as it is very true. This past month has been VERY difficult and this is how i've been feeling. I need to get away, but i'm never getting the chance. I just glad that i found this poem. XcarmenX

Nearly Unnoticed

She is lonely
Even though you can't tell
She is reaching out
For what, she doesn't know
She will continue to sit in silence
And hope that someone may stumble across
Her and all of her emptiness
But they only hope that they do it in time
Otherwise she will have drifted too far
And she may let go
Of whatever grasp of the world she has
As she slowly fades out of the lives of everyone
Nearly unnoticed.

this poem is amazing. It really hit my heart because i'm supposedly one of those kids with everything but in reality i dont have anything. My world is empty and lonely and completely unnoticed. And as your poem says . one day i want someone to just fall upon my life andmaybe try to understand it. Thanks for the amazing poem.

crystal
i loved this poem because i feel that i am left unnoticed all of the time and i never find that one person to sit down and listen and before I know it i will lose a grasp on life and this world and it will be too late i will be left unnoticed i always wanted to be noticed but everytime i try i get pushed away more and more all I get noticed for is my harmful behaviors torward myself and then i am considered a pshyco because of the people that drove me to feel so hurt, unnoticed and feeling like i am not a part of this world that anyone would wanna be part of but for some reason i just dont fit in as hard as i try i get pushed away .
Sarah
As everyone has said - this describes alot of us. It just goes to show that even though we are all feeling alone, we're not actually alone in feeling it. There are so many poems out there about being lonely, but yours is one of the few that has really touched me and I felt I could really relate to properly. Thankyou.
