Poem -

I am alone

I am alone

The more we talk, the less we have to say 
Can you help me out, I can’t communicate 
I wanna go deep into the water 
But I was made to float 
Now I can only see what’s above 
I can’t go down below 

I don’t like this isolation 
What do they have that I don’t?
I don’t like this sensation 
why was I made to float?

It’s so lonely up here all on my own
The ocean so big and nothing is known 
With fish in the sea 
But I am alone

I like your poem very much!

It shows how the human brain always uses the same motifs when it desires to express something deep…, transcendent… For example, “water” always symbolizes the hidden part of our soul: “The Unconscious”… And, if one can submerge in its own “darkness”, it could be dangerous because one would have to face strange “creatures” belonging to an “obscure” and “mysterious” world…

Actually these strange creatures like “fishes”, “frogs”, “lizards”, etc, are nothing else than the other people that “you can’t communicate”… In other words, the people you want to understand in the real world are mere “reflections” of these “creatures” that live deep inside your interior “ocean” …. That is clear when you say “The ocean so big and nothing is known /With fish in the sea”… Very nicely expressed!

However you also say “But I was made to float/Now I can only see what’s above /I can’t go down below”… For me this means that you are struggling to destroy your own “Ego”.., your own “Self-Interest” in an effort to re-encounter with all your own interior “I’s”…, to re-encounter with your real “Self”…

I like to think that when the great effort is finally accomplished…, when you could sacrify your own rational “I”, and thus succumb to your own interior abyss…, you won’t feel “lonely” any longer because you will have find God…
