    Always Alone

    Sometimes when I'm alone at home, I'll sit and wonder...why I'm always alone? It seems like there's alot of people around me, but when I really need someone to lend me a shoulder or just sit and listen to me talk, I can't think of anyone. I hate the feeling of being alone. The...

    I Am Physically Alone.

    I have lots of great people here on EP.  So, I am not alone as far as not having anyone to talk to, but I am alone in the physical sense.  I have spoken about two sentences aloud today.  No one has touched me in days.

    I Am Drifting

    Fear is what holds us back from being happy. I fear being alone. It is holding me back from going to college. I know that I need to leave this town. There is nothing for me here. But I am scared that if I leave I will not be able to meet anyone and make new friends. I am so...
