I hate the quiet of the house.

I hate the cold sheets.

I hate the emptiness in the space beside me.

I hate the aching loneliness.

I hate the absence of touch.

I hate the feel of my own hands on my skin.

I hate the way my hair is wet with tears.

I hate the way sleep won't come.

And right now.....I find I'm not really all that fond of me either.

I can relate

Ditto to what sinathamby said, sweetie! :)

join the club, theres 1000s of us exactly like that

feel very much the same ,can i talk to you?

Lonelyness is a curse but aloneness is a blessing

Not a blessing all the time.

Lonely you need the other but alone, you are enough onto yourself and that is a blessing,try to understand what is aloneness

I hate the noise from the streets<br />
<br />
I hate the humid air<br />
<br />
I hate the casual easy smiles of acquaintances<br />
<br />
I hate the fact that I'm on the outside<br />
<br />
I hate people walking around with a paycheck in pocket<br />
<br />
I hate knowing I'm alive and broke<br />
<br />
I hate the way sleep ends and day roars back in<br />
<br />
And right now... I'm not much besotted by any good I've ever tried to do... for I can only remember what's wrong with me.<br />
<br />
(I'm sad to know you're lonely. I'm struggling with the aloneness of being out of work and doing everything I can to find a job and not succeeding very much in spite of everything I can think of doing. Either way... it sounds like we might both be trying to make the best of a bad situation through verse.)

I'm sorry you are struggling right now. I hope you find a job you love soon. Good luck and yes - we are making the best of our situations.

you will love the freedom
you will love the quietness
you will love the peace
you will love the strength you didn't know exist
you will love the YOU for a change

Sounds cold and lonely,so sorry you feel that way.

Thank you. I don't feel that way as much these day. :)

Good to hear that.

You are not alone though you may feel that way. Talking about it is the only way of reaching out and when you do you'll see we are all here. :)

:) True, but thankfully it's not as bad these days.

I hate coming "home" to a cold quiet place too. :(

Yes - I know what you mean. Check out my story "The House on the Corner". That's usually my experience of coming home.

i dont know what to say to ease your loneliness ? as each of us are lonely i our own way, ive been on my own for 12yrs ,its about finding inner peace and serenity , although im stillon the outside looking in x

I don't think there are any words that take this kind of loneliness away, but it sometimes helps to know you aren't the only one feeling this way. I hope you find that 'fix' you are seeking. Hugs ~

Wow that's definitley how I feel right now.

I'm sorry. Hugs ~

So many lonely people on here, I hope you will find friends to ease your pain.

Thank you.

I understand...

Thankyou for helping me to realise I am not alone with feelings of deep and desperate lonliness.

You're welcome. And no, you aren't alone.

Thank you for sharing what you have been thinking and feeling. Lately I have been struggling with a sense of sadness and loneliness. I appreciate how your words mirror some of my experiences. Hopefully this difficult time will place for you soon.

Thank you. And you as well.

It can be very lonesome when you just lie down and start thinking about it..the things around your home may help to get you out too.

Yes, it is. Thank you.

self realization, the realist

A realist to the bitter end.

The only way to change it, Is to realize it.

My Bobby DeNeiro impersonation, "you talking to me"?
Pardon my ignorance but I can't tell if a response is to me or not.
