Poetry, Writer life

Faking smiles, forcing laughter,
This crowded world is such a torture,
All the stupid, “Hi!”s and “Hello!”s,
The unmeant, “How are you?”s,
Nobody ever really cares,
Isolation, everybody fears.
So, the cold hugs and dead handshakes
World is so full of fakes.

In places that are the crowdiest,
Are where I feel the loneliest.
It’s so tiring and heart wrenching,
So, strenuous is all the faking.
I just want to run far, far away,
Be completely alone for a day.
All alone, I feel the most alive,
In isolation I want to dive.

Enjoy deep and honest conversations,
With people from my imaginations,
Let my mind soar, far and beyond,
Leave this world’s sly threshold,
Get rid of all the fake socialization,
As I immerse in a beautiful isolation,
Just me, my soul and my thoughts,
Far away from this toxic world.

    1. Thank you so much Rashmi. And this truly is a meant thank you. And I really mean it when I say that you’ve been a very important pillar of support in my blogging journey! ❣️❣️❣️💕💕😘😘

      1. Haha… I’m still waiting for a collab with you. Is there anyway I can contact you beyond WordPress comments section?

      2. That’s so kind of you. I didn’t have to do anything, the blog format I chose automatically provided me one. 🙈

  1. Your poem is all about the present situation. So true. We need to find solitude in the midst of enforced isolation with people and neighbours we love and live near, but we just need to have some room to let off steam and be ourselves.

      1. Haha… 🙈🙈🥰🥰🥰💕❣️ I saw isolation on your contest post. Soo… This came up! So it’s all thanks to you!! ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Thank you so much dear!!! I’ll definitely take it forward. However, I’ll be taking some time as I still have many other awards pending. Much love. ❤️❤️❤️

  2. This is again an amazing poem from you 💛 and thank you for introducing us about it, I find the topic interesting and just finished posting one 😊😊

  3. This is uniquely wonderful Shreya 😍…I really loved the theme, and these lines…
    All the stupid, “Hi!”s and “Hello!”s,
    The unmeant, “How are you?”s,
    Nobody ever really cares,
    I can feel this.
    It’s beautiful 💕😊

    1. Thank you so much Anushka!! I really hate faking conversations just to be social. Why are deep honest conversations so rare? 😭😭😭

      1. I too have this questions Shreya…🥺
        But, that doesn’t matter…unless I have people like you around me.💓

  4. Haha, please don’t do forced laughter! 😅. It’s soo grating to me, actually appears psychopathic sometimes. Like when somebody is doing forced laughter in a loud, conversation-dominating way, I can all-too-easily picture them laughing like that whilst wielding a knife!! It makes that person seem very dishonest and un-trustworthy.

    Equally frustrating is when people actually believe forced laughter! 😆

    Of course, a lot of people actually do forced laughter, and that’s the way I feel about all of them lol 🙄.

      1. Haha… Thank you so much Robin. I don’t do forced laughter a lot. What I do is nod every few seconds as I lose myself to a different world in my mind. 🤪🤪🙈🙈

  5. Lovely, darling. I can totally relate to this. Solitude is all that I love.❤️ People find it weird that I chose to keep it real and stay in my own lane. But loving your own company is the best feeling ever!

  6. And hey, there is a typo here – Are where is feel the loneliest. Please correct it. 🙂 I’m sorry to put it here but, no option to connect. 🙁 Delete it once you read it. Love!😘

  7. Those two lines from the second stanza 👍❤️ Glad to see that atleast someone knows how real life works. Nicely written. Are you a professional poet ? For you writing skills are insane!!! (You know just asking)

    1. Thank you so much dear. 💕💕 I’m just a girl who likes to write and wants to have a career in writing. Are you flattering me or you’re just super duper nice? Cause this comment is making me extremely very happy. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Thank you so much dear! 💕💕💕💕
