Cornered with the masquerade of a fake smile
Hoping that someone will understand you for a while.
People ignore your insecurities that slither underneath your skin
But you still try your best to fit in.

Some love, some respect you innocently wish to earn
The warm touch of someone’s hand you yearn.
Yet subliminally away from you people turn
& in the flame of your broken dreams you frivolously burn

Surrounded by people who make you feel alone
Your hopeful heart slowly transforms into a stone.
Abandoned in this endless spell of silence
You get enveloped in your mind’s depressing violence.

My dove so why do you burn & bitterly cry
To fit in why do you even try?
Why do you care for what others say?
For you are divine in your own unique way.

Your teary eyes are numb for no valid reason
For every passing moment in itself is a beautiful season.
If ever you feel hostility from our selfish community
Then look within, for within you lies love’s eternity.

You become the prophet of your own delight
Through the darkness discover your inner light.
Strolling alone no matter how difficult things may seem
Remember you are beautiful like a poet’s decorated dream.

Perhaps none will fathom your unspoken fears
Perhaps none will wipe your burning tears.
But my precious whenever your heart begins to bleed
Remember you’re the marvelous misfit who is born to lead.

Note: There are times when we feel lost even when we are surrounded by people. There are occasions when we feel like we don’t belong somewhere. Many times I’ve felt like a misfit… However, today being valentine’s day rather than crying or lamenting I thought of celebrating love by dedicating a poem to the people, who at any point in time may have been ignored, heartbroken or felt like a misfit. My dear, you aren’t a lost star in a universe instead, you are an entire universe blossoming within a star. You are flawless in your own unique way. ❀

  2. I absolutely LOVE this post β™₯️ I, too, feel like a misfit and out of place at times and this poem really spoke to that. Very well written and flowed nicely.

  3. I love your flow and rhyme to this poem. So often it seems like poets shy away from rhyme in poetry anymore. But I still greatly enjoy writing in rhythm and rhyme and always enjoy seeing when another poet does so well as well! Thank you for sharing a lovely poem with a lovely meaning!

  4. Beautiful poem, Sidharth! Every individual is unique and may feel lost and alone at some point in their lives, but it’s our differences that make us stand out and be able to achieve more, to be our own person imparting something of value to the world like no other. I think everyone should feel this from within and I love how you’ve incorporated this message in your poem!

      1. Yes its the reality we live in & certain kind of darkness can’t be tamed but we just try the best we can to use our tears to express & possibly give some hope and some smiles to someone who is going through/ has experienced a similar emotional struggle.


  5. Oh! I found this very touching. I can relate to this. I’ve been through such hard times. It’s indeed a fire that you make for warmth and end up burning in yourself, if not guided by positivity & faith.
    Also, I’ve followed you on Instagram. πŸ™‚

    1. I simply couldn’t have agreed more with you on that. Thank you for decorating my poem with your beautiful thought. Also I appreciate you following me on Instagram. I followed you back, I look forward to knowing more about you and your outlook towards life. 😊


  6. This poem resonated with me as like some of the other readers, I can relate. I love how you have crafted it so well, describing the anguish of feeling like an outsider with a beautiful rhythm that gradually sounds more hopeful at the end and maintaining that rhythmic beauty in your poem.

    1. Thank you, I’m glad you feel that way. Expressing the unsaid in the form of rhymes is like an emotional therapy for me so if my words could connect with someone else in anyway then I really feel happy. Thank you for making me smile with the goodness of your feedback. πŸ™πŸ™‚

  7. Deeply motivating it is!!
    It pierced through the heart.
    And I already read it twice πŸ˜‚πŸ˜€
    Special mention…
    The second last line of your note saying that. ..you are not a lost star in the universe but you are the universe lying within a star!!πŸŒŸβ€πŸ’«

    1. This poem is quite close to me because, it’s a feeling that I’ve lived with quite often but yes it’s better to be a lone wolf that walks in the correct direction rather than trying to fit in a directionless heard of sheep. Glad you read the note at the bottom. 😁 Humbled by your love and support. πŸ™

  8. Yeah!! If in a herd race , we often think of outdoing others. Being a lone wolf helps to identify the follies inside us and at the end ,win over them.πŸŒŸπŸ’« ,which is what counts the most.
    Pleasure is all mineβ€πŸ’«
