Poem: Self Absorbed

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Self absorbed is a poem about how one can exist in his own little world with little or no concern for others or things around him.

He walks on a road of his own, making it impossible for a relationship to bloom. He seems lost in an illusion as his eyes cannot see the big picture.

He is left standing alone as time silently drifts away.

"Self Absorbed"

Drenched like an absorbent paper towel,

existing in his own small world

with little to no concern for others.


Aimlessly drifting on a selfish road

of his own making,

destroying any chance

for a relationship to blossom.


Lost in an illusion,

his eyes failing to see the big picture,

pampering himself

with his thoughts and desires.


Standing alone

on a deserted island,

losing his battle for love

as time silently drifts away.
