    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 just in one of those moods

    where I can't sleep and I lay there pretending this is it. Pretending that was my last breath. Wondering where I'll be heading next after I'm gone. So many people around but nobody I truly connect with so even when in a crowd I feel like the only person on earth.

    "We're all lonely for something we don't know

    we're lonely for. How else to explain the curious feeling that goes around feeling like missing somebody we've never even met?”

    I forgot hubby would be out of town, a kid had a meltdown, and I overfilled the cupcake pan with batter, so now they look like mushrooms. None of these things is a problem in the grand scheme of things, but still ...

    I feel lonely sometimes,

    and it feels like a desperate need for someone to be with you. I am not really that lonely for example my mom, dad, and sibling. But in other cases with friends i feel pretty lonely. It's hard to explain but it's just I don't like this feeling. Thank you!

    It always seems to creep up on me.

    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

    Being Independent Can Be Exhausting.

    Always having to rely on yourself, in addition to having friendships sometimes be one-sided, makes me feel lonely. I always wonder when can it be my turn to have someone care and think about me as much as I do for everyone I know and love.

    For some reason ever

    since the beginning of week I feel so lonely, I haven't been able to talk to my friends, and family a lot. I often say because it's the stress that's coming since exams are approaching. I can't wait till the end of this month and I'll be finally free!

    Even if I have my family

    and my best friends with me; Thank God. But, sometimes I feel lonely, I want to love, be loved and feel special. I want to believe in true love, but it is hard to keep believe in. :/

    Sometimes being by myself

    for too long creates this huge cloud of loneliness for me. I wish I had someone but on the other hand i feel like i would be bad for the person.

    It descends without warning

    and surrounds you. A smokey fog, thick and oppressive making it hard to breathe and your chest hurts from the effort. You can't see what's in front of you and you can't go back. The silence is deafening. Fear seeps inside, permeates your being and steals your warmth. You try to...

    But how do you meet people without looking odd?

    I mean sure, you suggest pubs, cafés etc. but let's be honest people go to these places with their friends rather than to meet new ones. If you turn up on your own and try to join in with others you're going to come across as strange. Let's be honest, these days people become...

    But then I start to enjoy my solitude.

    It is rare that I can have the solace to just be and sort through my thoughts or just take my time taking in my surroundings.

    the amount of people unable to express themselves because of the emotionally repressed masses. Haven't we all gone through something? It's difficult finding someone who wants it, it's hard to pass it on because no one wants to hold it. It's like an old school Batman film, the...

    What does being lonely mean?

    Well to me it's being by yourself With no one, no physical contact that we all crave, no one to say how much they missed you today no one remembering your birthday, no one noticing I'm still the same I'm still depressed,more than ever, no one to hug no one to kiss no one to...

    Sometimes you just want to sit with some one,

    or just be around them, just to be in their presence and exist around them. You don't even have to talk to them. Just someone you care about. It's just a great feeling, just being around them. It's comforting just knowing that they're right there if you need them. Just sitting...
