    I am very lonely right now.

    I just sat on my right hand until it went numb and then held it with my left hand so it felt like I was holding hands with someone. I wish I'm holding hands with someone. but I'm not. I'm lonely.

    Everyday

    Everyday I wake up, by myself. My mom calls only my name in the morning, and then I go the kitchen to eat breakfast... by myself. I'd ask her to eat, but she's cooking.Then, when I go to school, I arrive alone, looking around for my crush, who only seems to be there at a...

    Dissapointment.

    I am very lonely in this world. People come and leave me then all alone with fading memories and a bitter taste of pain and dissapointment. I just get used to people very much. They leave and go ahead. I can just follow them with my eyes. I can just resign to my straits and sit...
