    It Has.........

    Always been my belief that loneliness is something within. A state of mind, if you will allow me to call it such.  To me, that feeling is what happens when one is left alone with their thoughts. That odd feeling you get when you are, in a sense, living in your head. ...

    Ghost Girl I feel like a ghost of a person.

    Like the world moved on and I don't quite fit in. People look through me now. Really have no expectations for or from me. As if I'm an annoying presence that just needs to dissipate. So I choose not to interact. I observe. I wait. And I know I need to move on.

    Invisible

    I feel lonely when I'm alone and if I'm in the crowd. Maybe even more if there are lots of people around. I seem small and invisible to others. I try to chat with them but nobody cares so soon I shut my mouth and just listen. Why wasting my words? If they don't want to hear. It...

    Its Not Because We Feel We Are Not Loved

    its the fact that we feel lonely, not because no one loves us. because the one we love, doesn't love us the way we want to them to love us.that's why we feel lonely even when we are surrounded by friends and family.

    Life has a funny way of throwing things at you, but loneliness is like emptiness. I hate to see so many people who feel this way, and I just want to say that I'm here if anyone needs to talk or just to get something of their chest. I will listen. ♡
