    My Shadow And I

    I'm friends with my shadow, it's long tall and black, it mimics every move I make, but never answers me back. It's like another part of me, tied at the heel, trying desperately to escape, never knowing how I feel. I'm always by my shadow, it doesn't matter if there's no...

    Trapped In My Head...

    I'm sure anyone who feels lonely, isolated, forgotten or/and completely alone knows what I mean by my title. Thats pretty much how I feel 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I suspect most people never expected to be in this situation but I also suspect that at some point many people...

    I miss having someone,

    a couple of days ago I bought a brand new bed, its so big and comfortable but it makes me feel so lonely because I have this giant bed and no one to lay in it with me, I miss cuddling and staring into each others eyes, long warm kisses and the soft caressing : (

    I miss having friends.

    I miss those midnight talks in the yard or on the porch, laughing our ***** off or telling eachother horror stories. Or just whatsoever. I just miss my two bestfriends. And after everything that has happened, I still wish them all the happiness. Where ever they are.

    I have been feeling very lonely

    for a while. My husband is my best friend, but seems we are more like brother and sister than husband and wife. The sex is very boring, doesn't happen very often anymore and we don't even kiss, hold hands or snuggle. I miss the passion, and the feeling of someone wanting me. All...

    I'm picky, i dont like everyone.

    Even if you've given me reason to like you, sometimes i won't like you and it's just because got bored. As bad as that is, i get bored easily and i know people get bored of me easily too. And I've come to peace with this fact.

    I'm so extremely lonely

    that it feels like it's killing me inside. I have a couple close friends but I want more. I guess mostly I just want to feel loved. I want to be the most important person in someone else's life. I've never had that before. It's all I really want in life..

    The Park

    The other day while walking in the park I noticed a couple seated at a picnic table. They were making out like crazy. They seemed so in love. It was sweet. It made me think of when I was a teenager. I used to sneak off to the park and have secret rendezvous with a boy my parents...

    This is so true. I cant deal with being lonely

    anymore. It hurts so bad. Not having anyone to care for you or love you. I would want a boyfriend but they are stupid too. I dont know what else to do. I dont even have friends. I need to feel human.

    And I Have No One To Blame But Myself.

    I don't know what's wrong with me. I can't keep a friendship because I'm just a ****** friend. I will talk to them and be there for them, but randomly I will feel like I'm being annoying and they're just friends with me out of pity. So I shut down and stop answering their texts...

    sight deal, but I found someone that was a perfect match. As with most endeavors in my life, I torpedoed it by overthinking. The best metaphor for what happened is the stereotypical person leaving on a boat and you run to try and be with them. Basically, I didn't run fast enough...

    Soul Crushing Loneliness

    So lonely right now, I feel like nobody cares about me. What makes me lonelier is when people don't respond to my messages or anything on EP. I'm pathetic, I depend on the internet to take my loneliness away but I'm stupid for thinking. Maybe I should stop this fit of self...

    Sometimes I feel like I have no one to talk to,

    it makes me feel so alone. I sometimes feel like most of my friends don't care and there ignoring me and avoiding me. Sometimes when I really need someone to talk to...no one is there. I just feel so alone.

    I am so lonely it is terrible.

    I am in this empty apartment. I feel empty and alone. I wish someone out there needed a partner or a soul mate. Someone calm and loving. Someone who is good with fragile woman. I'm sorry, but the loneliness is terrible.
