    It's not necessarily a bad thing.

    I've contacted 4 friends so far today to see if they wanted to hang out after I got off work and so far all 4 of them have had different reasons for not being able to. I used to let it bother me. Wondering if it was my fault; did I do something wrong. So on, but now I realize...

    Shadows of rage follow the path I tread,

    Comfort nor shade I seek in this odyssey of pain, Welcome is the anguish simmering roads inflict weary feet, Decorum of civilization appearing insincere to the mind, Heeding not the words of wisdom or lingering whispers of love, Alone I walk the soul blazing into embers of...

    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...

    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...

    I don't mind being alone.

    It is not as bad as you would think. I tell myself when lights out is, I eat and drink when I want, I get to leave the apartment whenever j feel like it, and best of all, I don't have to worry about people stealing my food. Being alone is good but.. I wish I had a dog to keep...

    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.

    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

    I was once considered important to someone

    but I think I have drifted to the back of their mind and they only want to talk to me if they want to or when they want something. If that person is reading this you know who you are. We used to text everyday but we hardly even talk now.

    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.

    There is a void where something
