Belated intro: piece is about the feeling, not me or anyone I am currently involved with. Sure the vast majority of us have felt cut-off by a partner, relative, or friend at least once. It is said that being shunned is the punishment we fear most. Easy to see why!
Hope this 'disclaimer' doesn't take anything away.
Smell the Roses!

How could you put me in Isolation?
I am human.  I make mistakes.
Everything I did, I did out of love.
Okay, I can be a little hard to take.

Got a temper, but who doesn’t?
Not like I’m the only one throws fits.
Walls are closing in.  LET ME OUT!
I AM GOING CRAZY, you shit!!

Left me naked!   Cold and hungry.
How can you be such a beast?
I am a ghost of the person I was.
Won’t you crack the door, at least?

Shunning should be against the law.
May not be a crime, but IT IS A SIN!!

Nothing.  No one.  Silence is killing me.
Cross my heart and hope to die,
I will haunt you day and night.

I know that feeling, nothing hurts more than neglect that says you aren't worth notice. Well penned, and I'm impressed.

I know this well, but fortunately, it is way in my past that I felt this. You penned it so well.
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner
Painfully penned, (((Pea))), you take us into the claustrophobic, silent hell that no one deserves. Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(
Reviewed by John Flanagan
It's all in how you do it, Pea, that unique style and expression I'm mad about..." may not be a crime but it is a sin"...ah yes, now there's the rub.
I can relate to this and everyone else can, too - if they can't, their hearts have stopped pumping.

Reviewed by Karen Palumbo
Yea! Got that treatment from my parents, guess that's why they left me at the hospital when they left to return home.

Be always safe,
Reviewed by Felix Perry
I too hate the silent treatment more than any thing else, I can take arguing but to just close someone out you love is really cruel...
Reviewed by Roger Ochs
The disclaimer actually strengthens the poem. that you can write with so much power while not actively suffering speaks volumes about your talent.

Now this I understand
Reviewed by TONY NERONE
Wow, you are certainly angry in this writing. I hope it is not directed to me. You are much to sweet to be angry. Nothing of good comes from it. Stay well, and sweet.

Reviewed by Regis Auffray
This poem is soul-grasping and powerfully compelling in emotions and meaning expressed, Pea. Love and best wishes to you,
