This reminds me of the proverbial, "one can be lonely in a room full of people" and that is so true. I was reviewing someone's work a short while ago, and I realised tthe only way to alleviate "loneliness" is to embrace someone else who is discouraged and lonely. Fortunately I have two very fine examples of this, one is my wife, the other is a close friend, who recently lost her husband to the final eternal journey. But well done Diane, an excellently written rhyming poem, Beautfully worded and poignantly presented. No set metered quatrains and abcb rhyming, well done, blessings, Roy

    Hey Roy... I remember a time before cell phone in the eighties... I would travel to Europe and felt entirely free and anonymous I called it being between space stations and it was Heaven... yours, diana

Excellent imagery, with complementary story and rhymes.
(Why, I wonder did you find Venice down in the dumps?)
Best of luck in the contest, Diana!

Your poem describes me to a T. I much prefer not being sought out, singled out or even notice. In stores, I like the idea of seeing acquaintances before they see me. Some people of whom I have no need to talk. Anonymity, most of the time a good thing. Really enjoyed this.

This poem, Anonymity, presented in ABCB stanzas, speaks well of the ability to become one with the crowd. The press can offer camouflage and protection.

This is a sad poem about people who are too wrapped up in their own lifes to recognize another human who is struggling with theirs. Good luck in the contest and thank you for sharing.

Yeah, that's how I feel sometimes. Just let me blend in and flow with the wave of humanity...until I feel like stepping out of the line. No need to think or feel...just free flow for awhile. With no one recognizing or bothering me. Great piece!

    I love to be encompassed inside of a wave of people. It is kind of like being behind a truck and riding in its draft... again thanks so much for another thoughtful review...

I could totally relate to this feeling of walking through crowds and feeling invisible as if I was watching a movie. Sometimes I like being by myself and watching but other times it's lonely and I wish someone was there to share the experience.

You have captured the feeling very well. Great flow, rhythm and rhymes.

You can be lonely in a crowd as well as hiding in it. This poem brings in both ideas.
The picture is of a crowd but it doesn't match with the speaker having to put of his/her hood to keep warm from a cold wind so better to hide.

Keep writing

Joan

    Hey Joan... I've always wanted to know what dragonpoet represents... I like it... it has an interesting edge... yours, diana

reply by dragonpoet on 26-Mar-2019
    It comes from the love I've had for dragons since I was little and my dream of being a good poet. I figure with a dragon as a muse I can find strong words.

As I shared in profile, isn't that a writer, we hide behind words, as actors apply make up. The words an actor shares, were written. But as old poets say, my words look better on you. Beautiful poem.

This concise poem is very well--written. The first two stanzas movingly describe
a lonely, nondescript person in a crowd, satisfied to simply be solitary.
The last stanza adds a new dimension to the hooded character. Hiding--from
what or whom? I like the added mystery!
