    ghosts

    the highways are all empty now. the ghosts of the past have long since left us behind. never though do the memories leave us. in the darkness is where the haunting begins not with the rattling of chains or flickering lights. it is the haunting of memories too fresh to bury and so...

    Willingly

    My life is rather public and social because of my profession. A lot of people know a part of me. Their idea of who I am is fiction and fantasy. I always was a loner. I was my sole adviser. I was taught many a lesson. I stumbled and fell more than I choose to remember. I'm...

    I can't seem to control what is happening to me.

    I don't even know how to start. All I know is I am hating myself more and more each day. The guilt of being a disappointment to my job and to my parents is so deep it makes me think of giving up on living. I don't understand why I can not be normal. If there is a god, why was I...

    Every Human Heart

    There is not a heart that has its moments of longing, yearning for something better, nobler, holier than it knows, a road thats not so lonely and shadowed with pain and guilt. In my worst times when the road ahead seems impossible and thunder and storms threatens to rip my world...

    As The Song Says.....

    As the song says, "I walk a lonely road, the only road that I have ever known...." I do walk a very lonely road, but it's the only road that I have ever known.   All hail Green Day lol, my favorite band.

    Wishing Upon A Shooting Star

    Have you ever wished upon a star when you were young? I used to do it a lot, like wanting to have super powers or have all the money I would need to buy anything I'd ever want. Everyone has something they want from life, most of the time its about what they want to get rid of...

    Full Of My Broken Dreams

    Never had anyone to walk beside me, I prefer to go my own road anyway, so nobody else gets hurt and I hate following the crowd, the only problem is the road I have chosen to walk, is a lonely, untravelled one. There are loads of times where I want to turn back, but I can't...

    Sure I have friends but mentally I'm alone on

    this journey we call life. Nobody stands next to me and understands how I look at the world. I'm sure someone thinks the same thoughts as I do but they don't show it or I haven't met them yet. So for now I'm walking past each day and waiting for someone who understands my...

    The only one that I have ever known Don't know

    where it goes But it's home to me and I walk alone In my opinion we all walk our own lonely road. Some are close with others so we walk near them everyday. And maybe some we only cross once if the time is right. Others we may walk beside and never see because the paths were...

    This Just Happens To Be My Theme Song.

    I walk a lonely road the only one I have ever known, my shadow IS THE ONLY ONE WHO WALKS BESIDE ME. Most people who claim to be lonely or a loner are not really the true form. But conversely it is amusing to note how many people who do not...

    A Desert Road

    It is very lonely and desolate,you know the tumbleweeds, well there aren't even those around! No people, no trees, no water, just a dry barren landscape, almost like a desert, but you just know there was life there before and now it has all been reduced to arid sand and dust...

    It was crooked, empty. No one was there. I felt so alone No lights, no people Even the stars and the moon hide The sunrise never did show-up It was dim, very dark. I was blinded with tears It went through the years I still walk a lonely road But I am not oblivious of the way...

    Self Imposed

    When the world collapses around me and I don't know how to cope, I isolate. Get rid of anyone in my life who might be able to help. Because I'm worried about their reaction, what they might think. I don't want to be judged, or coddled, or patronized. I seem to get into bad...

    Wandering The Path

    I have walked my path blindly, For years without end. Now I travel alone, I've lost my best friend. For 28 years now, I gave you my heart. You took it and ripped it, Now it's torn apart. Tattered and broken, Thrown to the ground. You stomped it and kicked it, And flung it...
