My Lonely World

Published by

If you ever came to feel my pain
or drowned for a day in my lonely rain
you would know what it’s like to suffer in my hell

If you listened to the tales I had to tell
you would never again pass judgement on me

You may even understand why sometimes I flee
why I sometimes hide when the road gets rough
or run away when life gets tough

If you spent 60 seconds locked inside my head
you’d understand why life I dread

If you took a minute to feel what I feel
you’d understand that my pain is so real

If you for once, choked on my tears
or had to fight through my fears

If you had to spend a day in my solitude
my nightmares you couldn’t elude
the judgements you first passed would fade away

You would probably hit the ground and pray
to never again see the things that I had seen
to never experience the dreams that I dreamed

  1. Hey is this the Jillianne Harris i know as a Grantsville
    Middle school student if so why did you hide such
    a talent for writing?

  2. This is an awesome poem and i can relate to it completely, people to often judge others without realizing what they are going through. thank you for writing the poem!

  3. Hi there Jillian,
    Well, the poem is very good. It superbly expresses the solitude and pain of a loner. Keep up the good writing!
    (I hope in real life, you are not such a loner!!…the world is not as bad as it seems!)
    Anyway, happy writing!!”

  4. Jillian–
    I've been looking for a poem lately to express how I've been feeling…
    apparently, I can't write one that says what I need it to say….
    but yours is perfect. I'm in the exact situation you've described.
    AMAZING POEM!! I hope you don't mind if I put it in my live journal
    with your name at the bottom and everything!!! It's *so* great!!
    Keep up the AWESOME work!! ^_^

  5. This is a really good poem, and I know a person that’s goin through the same thing. Anyways just try 2 be happy b/c the world isn't that bad as it seems.

  6. I loved this poem
    i felt like it was about me
    i would love for everyone to be in my shoes
    for just one day,
    Im all by my self right now
    i am always by my self

  7. That poem is wonderful,it explains everything i've ever been feeling and shows that no one can understand the pain you've gone through or the stress you feel from you trying to explain it but they would truly understand if they only experienced your life for a min. i love that poem. After all the highest point in someones life can just be a dream

  8. The poem was submitted by Jillian H. But Jillian didn’t leave a valid contact address. At that time Jillian titled the poem as “My world”. I added the word “lonely” when I published the poem on this Website. So its more likely that William Spencer copied this poem from my Website because he used the new title I modified.

  9. I just wanted to let you know,
    I, too, have seen so many terrible things.
    Im young, though my mind is not.
    I’ve been through alot, and
    would like to speak with you.
    If you would, can you e-mail me?
    I would very much like to talk with you.
    Thank you

    and you know how to express things in writing…

    someone who feels as much pain as me.

  25. whoa. When i first read this so many emotions ran throught my head. you speak so passoinatly about this subject, in my eyes. i you truly feel this way then may i say god be with you, always.

  26. Im in class at the moment and im reading ALL of the poems and comments on this site personally I’ve not found any that I like but I always have different opinions than others but this poem was actually VERY good it sounds like you have a tough life and it amazes me on how real this poem is no body really takes time to see things from the other persons point of view I have to admit I come from a family with a lot of money and im very athletic and scocial and I guess ppl would consider me a prep and I know I’ve teased kids in the past and at times I still do :( but anyway this was a great poem and I loved it!GOOD JOB DEAR!!!!!

  27. I Thought your poem was very deep. Im able to relate to this poem because it describes what I am and have been going through in the past few months. My family & friends don't understand how I feel & I wish they would. thank you for such a powerful poem. Knowing that others feel the same as me helps me get through this black cloud in my life.

  28. Jullian, you must have alot of bad things happen to you in your life for you to write this poem. I love this poem. Keep writing poems like this…

  29. Hey Jillian,
    Wow… when i was reading your poem i was just like speechless cuz I’ve been feeling the same thing and i can totally relate to your poem. I LOVE IT. I mean there are some people in this world who just don't understand me and i wish so bad that they would. i wish for the same thing if only they could spend some time in my shoes. your poem is very well written. anyways… I really hope that happiness finds you and you find happiness and i hope that you smile and laugh with joy.
