    I'm usually at home in my room,

    24/7. I homeschool so I don't see many friends. Just me and the darkness.

    Theres a loneliness thats dark

    as the midnight sky without stars....as deep as an abyss in the ocean......very much like the center of a tarpit it holds one there......far below the surface....gripping one in such a massive despair ...there is no escape ever. Each cruelty inflicted adds another heavy weight...

    I recently broke up with my boyfriend of a year.

    It's not that I really miss *him* (I did break up with him), but I miss having *someone*. I have to get used to being more on my own again.

    Many sleepless nights I feel

    so alone. There's nobody I can call that would even understand how I feel. I can be in a room full of people and still I feel like I am alone in this world. Some consider me to be a happy woman and fun mother but if only they knew what it really feels like to be me for just a...

    I think most of us all might go through this,

    I know I desire someone who loves JESUS to share my life with, and although He is all I need I know He wants us to be happy and I am one who is meant for a LOVING Marriage and relationship with one special woman!!

    The Wind

    There are moments when I think the house is actually moving. But it's been here since 1860. I guess it won't blow away tonight. But that wind... That ghostly howling... That multi-layered, anguished shriek... Windows rattle and groan. The frigid night streams in through unseen...

    I have good days and bad days; Days I feel

    invincible; Days I feel more vulnerable than a plastic bag drifting in the wind. I take a deep breath. I shake it off. I stay strong; try to stabilize myself deep in the soil. My roots are still growing. Until then, I am holding on. I am waiting for my hero. If only she wasn...

    I have friends, good friends

    and school friends... Oh I see... I neither have a close friend nor a real friend. That's why nobody sends me wishes on Christmas Day.

    The Silence I Need...

    Sometimes I am not even alone, but I feel as if I were. The embrace of the solitude wraps me and I don't even realize it. When I am writing or trying to put some feeling on the paper, I embrace the solitude. The solitude doesn’t need to be a negative thing, it has the...

    I'm stuck in a weird place between feeling

    excited about winter break and feeling lonely. This happens to me quite often and although I feel lonely at times, I'm not sad. The two are not synonymous although they are used as if they are - with good reason. It's easy to feel sadness because of being lonely. But for me, I'm...

    When you're surrounded by all these people,

    it can be lonelier than when you're by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don't feel like you can trust anyone or talk to anybody, you feel like you're really alone.

    I feel like this is not a bad thing

    but more of a normal thing. Everyone feels lonely and left out sometimes.

    I feel like none of my friends are genuine.

    Would love to make some friends who are willing to be friends online and on FB. I know this sounds weird but I feel lonely on FB. I am afraid of talking to my friends in real life and on FB. I feel ignored too in real life and online. If anyone feels the same and is willing to...

    For no reason really I randomly feel lonely.

    I have no real reason to. It's not like I don't have a great group of friends... It's just that sometimes I think I feel really distant from them because life gets so busy that I can't see or talk to them. I also wish my family communicated more and that we'd all get along. It's...

    everybody is so quick to judge somebody

    when they are mean and closed off instead of trying to figure out why they are that way.

    moment? To be able to sit with you and just... talk. Sure, maybe I can be weird and say the wrong thing at times or just act like a total goofball... but I know you won't judge me for it. I want to share with you my dreams and desires in life. I want you to share with me your...

    love, who matter to me, to sometimes remember my existence. It just makes me feel sad and emotionally used.

    For some reason, I'm feeling extra lonely today.

    All I do is work because I feel if I have extra time, I would be even more lonely. I hope this feeling subsides soon.

    Suddenly I feel lonely and alone. The general overwhelming feeling that no one loves me. Why does this happen? If only I could make it stop for good

    I always think about people's opinion about me and I act like I'm okay and happy but on the inside I'm messed up and teared apart and I don't know who to run to.
