    I Am Alone

    I keep running away from people afraid of getting hurt. It could be depression, maybe it is PTST. I don't know... I know that I'm scared.  Addition:Everything we do is about balance between the effort we put in and what we get out as a reward or pleaser. For an Extrovert person...

    But its not a bad thing,

    its easier to be away from people. People are petty,sensitive complicated. Maybe someday i'll meet someone whom I can be myself with. But until then am going to try an enjoy some quality alone time with myself.

    Mostly it just feels like I'm talking to myself

    anyway. Living life inside my mind is the only existence I've known, sometimes I think about being an animal with fewer brain cells to worry about getting depressed about the bullshit of life, but I could never give this perspective up now that I've seen through my mind. Being...

    Although I have no true friends,

    I wonder when I'll stop being alone. I've been alone for years. There's an empty void that has yet to be filled. I've realized that I'm not a people person and some people are destined to be alone. People are very sketchy.

    Shadows of rage follow the path I tread,

    The Window The light falls dim upon my pane,

    This lonely night indeed, Dreaded waves of emptiness, Will swallow up my need. The same moon shines in your sky, So close, yet far away. The ache of new, yet still unknown, frames this vacant day. I crawl upon my bed to rest, My mind and weary soul. Maybe sleep will visit soon...

    I am Alone. Because I walk,

    and talk in a sea of people. But never am I there. Sadness has built it's home within me. And lives indwelt in there. Pain, my companion, reminds me the price I have yet to pay. The price for the past, the future, the yesterday. My songs they wreath the wall in tears. My...

    A drifter. A nomad on a quest

    for the antithesis of home and the constant. I do not seek enlightenment for that void has been filled with a darkness. The mind's bedlam refuses to allow an anchor, demanding upheaval for my every breath. I have known hunger that dug it's claws into my soul. I have cradled...

    And This Is What I Do

    I can see the tallest mountain in the state from my front door. It calls my name and I cannot resist. I select a few cigars from my humidor. My two dachshunds and I get in the car and leisurely drive the short distance to the top. I park in the observation point lot. We get out...

    Most people that say they are lonely they start

    laughing and hanging out with friends the next day. Most people don't know what it feels like to be truly alone for many hours on end

    and thought this would be as good a place as any to start sharing, since "I am alone" sums up my life so succinctly! I've lived by myself, in a modest apartment, for about fourteen years now; before that I lived with girlfriends who had their own places, or had roommates, but I...

    For a moment the feeling of being special

    Even at school today,

    I was standing all by myself. I had absolutely no one else to stand with or talk to. It was just me and my phone. No one actually cares. They care about other people. Not me, never me. Guess I gotta live with it.
