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.

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.

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!

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.

Hope
This poem described totally how I felt and still feel. My dad is never there and my mom is always in the hospital battling the eating disorder that threatens to take her life. The only thing that pulled me through this year was a group of teachers from my school who showed they cared when I thought I couldn't go on anymore. I hope to tell them someday how special they were to me and how they saved my life, even though they don't realize it, but anyway, i loved your poem and I hope you'll write more like it. Thanks!
Kimberly

MyriadOfStars
This was the most incredible poem I've ever read. It says everything perfectly. This is exactly how I've felt for an entire year. invisible and unnoticed. I've been trying to write a poem myself about this but have not been able to capture the right words. Thank you so much for letting others know that we are not alone.
Megan

I just wanted to say that I feel the same way and I dont think that anybody should ever go through this. I had to since Kindergarten and now I am in 10th grade. So if you are one of those people that dont 'notice' us take a look around.

Mar
This poem is a great truth for many people. Many of us feel unnoticed during our life -and probably are for many-. I don't think they really notice us and it seems to me that they don't even try to notice us.

I can really relate to this poem, it describes exactly how i feel evey day.
jwlz
Amazing. I think this poem captures exactly how it is for so many people. I know when I first read it I felt as though it were about me. There is hope out there for all of us who are screaming on the inside, and this poem shows that we arn't alone as there are so many of us in the same situation. Hope, love, and peace to all of you.
ash
your poem is so much like how my life used to be.
Angel
this is so beautifully written. I have depression and I don't tell anyone how I feel so I feel like he wrote this about me.
cloud
Superb.
Eriko
This poem reminded me of a friend (if you replace the "her" and "she" with "him" and "his"). He's always alone, and this poem reminded me of him. Great work.
Lisa
by reading the comments i realize that i am not alone but i am still unnoticed
Stef
It seems as though you wrote this poem while in my head! I feel this way so much and by reading this I realize I am not as alone as my mind thinks!
lisa
hey i hope someone notices you and helps you
Jamal
I just want to say that this poem is so true. I read it and I feel that you know exactly how and what I feel.
Jon
that was so beautiful
Nemesis
This poem is great it states so well what its like to go into a depression and know that nobody can see you cry inside even if you wish the could but are to scared to say so. Its usually the people that you don't expect that do the most damage to themselves and its usually because nobody cares (at that what i thought when nobody noticed) , but this poem means you are noticed and everyone who reads it cares.
lost
This is an amazing poem it is short yet gets to the point it says so much. This is exactly how my life is and im relived to hear that people have gotten thru what i am going thru and what i have been going thru for 5 years.
Axiocersa
I've read this particular poem several times now and it never ceases to amaze me! It's really beautiful and it touches me deeply
beth
i totally feel you. i was seriously, clinicly depressed for years. thanks to 2 1/2 years of counsling and paxil, i am better, but this describes where i was. wow.
MysticR0se
I know how you feel. I was in love once with a guy. He never once took notice to me. It's like he saw all but me! I just melted into the background forever alone. I'm a poet too.(mostly 'bout sad poems of lost love.) You have a talent, never waste or take it for granted.
Laura
This is a beautiful poem! I have felt the very same way a time or two. I truly hope the poet is doing better now!
laurence
this poem is so good because it hit me where it hurts- i have a friend who is very much alone (she has attempted suicide a number of times) and this poem captured her for me- i could see her in this poem. thank-you
Alicia
I never read a poem that actually explained my life so well,the poem spoke to me so clear.
Erin
this was a really great poem it hit at the heart of depression.
sophie
i can agree with this poem directly when i was in my early stages of depression
Joanie
I think this poem was good. But, I think you should of went for the unthinkable for the title. The poem you wrote gets people's attention, it is noticed. Your note nearly unnoticed at the end, so for the title you should of written Noticed. People wouldn't expect that, it's daring. Keep writing poems though.
valerie
this poem was interesting. it was calling my name, and it touched me. i liked it a lot. it is exactly how i feel.
Bobbi
This poem explains my life so well. I appreciate the fact that you care and write these poems. I am now trying to receive help from the doctor
sabrina
i love the poem
terri
Hi Reese, What a sad poem. It reads as though you have entered my life and know what is going on in my confused mind.
Damien
I really know where you were coming from here. I still feel this way sometimes.
