    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...

    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.

    Hordes of rampant humanity collides with

    I'm Tired Of People

    My best friend just called me a liar. How could we ever be friends after that? What could I possible share with her without wondering if she thinks I am lying to her? How can you know you have a true friendship if one of the people thinks the other is a liar? I gave everything I...

    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

    For a moment the feeling of being special

    I spend 99.85% of my time alone.

    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 lay here, staring at the ceiling.

    I stop answering what little messages I receive. What has happened to me. Who am I. Why do I feel like this. Question racing through my mind, in and out, one after the other. Music doesnt seem to help anymore. I feel hopeless, and I go day by day attempting to restore in people...

    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.

    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...

    All I just need is friends to be with me,

    so I will never feel lonely. But I am alone all the time. My so called friends don't wanna hang out with me. I spend most of my time bored, sleeping, watching TV `alone`. And it really sucks.

    I've kept it all inside.

    Every word and every line I could keep secret for any length of time, I've kept it all inside. Everything I've gone through is but a battle in one mind. The ones who love me most know nothing of my life, but I don't feel regret that it's all just been a lie, because the ones who...

    People don't enjoy my company,

    I've often been told point blank. "People don't like you." "Nobody really likes you." I used to be able to just brush it off but lately I just can't handle hearing theses things. It's probably because I'm still processing a big break up and my emotions are raw. Regardless...

    I used to be surrounded by friends,

    literally every day someone new wanted to hangout with me, I had a million chats open at once... somewhere it all went wrong and now I'm all alone. I have good friends but they all live so far away. Anyone else feel like this?

    There is a void where something

    once was. A yearning, missing piece that will never be again. The gapping hole bleeds and all I can do is hold on and wait for the bleeding to stop. I am alone and I hurt.

    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...

    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.

    I hate being alone, because I get more depressed, and lonely. I do have a cat but I still feel alone, with no one to share a hug, or go for walks with, or just talk/ I don't know how to communicate with some people, maybe it is because after my fiance' died, I lost touch on...
