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. (Report) Reply

    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' (Report) Reply

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

    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. (Report) Reply

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

    the strong image-setting compels us to feel the party air...and an alienated individual sitting unconcerned too... (Report) Reply

    Search...well imagined and expressed. Parties do have such personalities who become alien to partying. A very good one. (Report) Reply

    I completely agree with poet and echo his feeling: It is a tight walk rope searching for a good person in the world of indifference. Enjoyed yr creativity dear poet :) (Report) Reply

    A blend of apt analogy and quality diction that merges well with the rendering style.
    The only concern is about the WHY and WHERE of the person waiting and the one waited for.. What if the latter doesn`t meet the former at the place? (Report) Reply
