    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...

    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...

    Ticking Time Bomb

    I just feel like a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. Waiting to die. Things have gotten so much worse lately. I'm crying out for help. I know I need help before it's to late. I just don't think I got be selfish enough to hurt everyone. I just want to slip away quietly. I don't...

    No longer burdened by the sins of the father,

    Shackles of ancestry no longer binding on my soul, Free of biases nurtured since the first breath of infancy, And yet paved an intimate pathway to perdition, Laying claim to the scars from the scorching fires, Tales of misdeeds etched with footprints my own, On a dark...

    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...

    Cloaked by the ignorance of a hearts desire,

    I can't stop shivering.

    The Definition Of "courage"

    My Feet Are Tired From My Journey...Where Is The Prize?

    All my life I tried to do what people were suppose to do. Graduate, go to college, work, buy a home etc... I always thought and hoped everything else I couldn't do would fall into place. I recall all the sacrifices with going to college, thinking I could do things on my own and...

    I just feel lonely all the time,

    truly just walking a lonely road through life, the only one that I have ever known. I don't know where it goes... But it's home to me, and so I walk alone. I walk this empty street, down the fabled Boulevard of broken dreams. The city sleeps, and I'm the only one... BWAHAHAHA...

    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...

    Sometimes I think it's better

    that way. To get lost in your mind & just think. If no one else is there you have yourself you don't have to depend on anyone but you.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    (Bound souls) Willful ways of wandering hearts,

    journeys to the forest's deepest unknown parts. Wanting to live and love to rid oneself of death's despair, words are too bountiful with no feeling to spare. Wanderlust takes me though I'm not lost, searching for what can remove the frost. Fighting through all that comes in our...
