I relate well to the feeling you describe so beautifully.
Being in a crowd can be a nightmare, but I have figured out how to cope. And yes, I often pull on a hat or pull over my hoodie to feel less exposed.
Thanks for a lovely poem.

Alone in a crowd. This can work both ways. It is a blessing when we want to hide. But we would feel intensely lonely too sometimes and a sense of non belonging would creep on us.
I liked the way you structured tour poem. I hear each disembodied voice--I iked this very much .They are just that voices separated from their bodies.
Bravo

Another lovely piece from you and one I think a lot of us will relate to. I have struggles with anxiety so I want nothing more than to be anonymous and unnoticed when out in public. You captured this feeling perfectly. 'Pulling my good down tight, magically I dissapear'. This is such a whimsical statement, and one from childhood when we used to think that by covering our eyes, we were then invisible. This is something we still cling to- I always feel safer and protected under the shelter of a hood. Very relatable words. Great job x

-Good image and
presentation, Diana.
-I like your poem; you
convey a more serious mood
with your descriptions.
-The added rhyme enhances
the flow of the ideas.
-You effectively show how
you can be in a crowd, and hear
the voices around you,
"bereft of all joys."
-The concluding verse
and last line are also very effective.
-Good luck in the contest.

Hello Diana,
This is an interesting poem, being alone in a crowd.
Sometimes I'd rather be alone; sometimes alone with someone.
I prefer quiet, but also like theater and concerts.
One thing I know I rather not be is famous.
I like the feel of your poem, magically disappearing at will
while in plain sight.
Well done.
Robert

Art, so you possess a cloak of invisibility. :) No. Something else methinks. The character feels invisible because they are ignored. A homeless person perhaps People stare through them. No eye contact. May as well not exist at all. They don"t care.

A lot to think about.

Nice job Art.

Best
John

Great commentary! It often feels so good just to slide through the "noise" all around and slip into silent anonymity. Sometimes observation is way more fun than participation - and more educational. I good read - thanks for sharing.

I really enjoyed this poem, Diana. Being an introvert, I can identify with this one. I remember being in Venice many years ago, and definitely you can blend in and not draw any attention, lol.


Take care and good luck!

Russell

    I'm not an introvert but I love being able to be a fly on life's wall. It doesn't make me explain or defend myself... I just listen and grow from others... yours, diana

This is indeed a sketch of life in our world today where each is caught up in his/her own orbit with little time to engage with other memeber s of the human race !!!well done

I think that we all should blend in and not make a fuss about anything. The poem does make sense. I agree with your point of view. No grammatical errors. Good luck in the contest!
