He stands alone-depressed.
A wasp stings him.
It does not hurt-at all.

The amount of words you use here is very interesting, because it really leaves you to decipher the meaning of the poem. The meaning I got from this poem was that "he" is so lost in his depression and sorrow, that he does not feel the physical pain inacted on him. Is that right?

Yes, that is what I meant by it, but no interpretation is wrong. Thank you for the comment!
