An alien amid noises of coming and going
of revelry and roistering,
of insolent comments and vulgar jest,
of affected style and cocky bluster,
dumb among inebriate men,
deaf to their rising palaver,
in a corner sat he at the party,
pining to share inarticulate thoughts,
yearning to meet a face dear to heart,
eyes surveying every nook,
like the one searching for the treasure,
lost in a heap of rubbles.

    A well depicted picture of human nature. It seems to me that mostly we are alone amongst many. And our thoughts are so different than others that we ourselves are individual aliens - away from the normal stream of life.... well narrated one.

    It's when we are alone in a crowd and it happens so often. You have put the idea nicely in verse. It remembers me famous poem 'Desiderata'

    A moving portrait of loneliness in the midst of merriment. No doubt the alien wears a fixed smile.

    some people are not so party-friendly.... 'Search' was sharp, solid and precise.10.

  • Anthony Di''anno (10/5/2013 1:41:00 PM)

    I can relate to feeling at times as though nobody gets me, sitting in corners watching. How many children never get to be truly visible? A thoughtful poem.

  • Heather Wilkins (10/5/2013 11:51:00 AM)

    the search is never ending, I rate this 10

  • Kavya . (10/5/2013 6:42:00 AM)

    a very intimate search...hope the aliens eyes found the treasure he was looking for: -)

    Party is full of insolent comments and vulgar jest. There is no meaningful atmosphere for a stranger who expects sanity. Beautiful poem.
