  PLACES IN MY LONELY HEART by Debi Lyn ~ Fri 11/04/22 @ ~ 10:30 pm   The boys out there simply can’t compare
Have you ever felt unnoticed? Stood silently, hoping to be approached? Sat and stared at the wall, hoping someone talks? Stood in a group completely ignored? This is for the lonely, the ignored, the left out
Some of us are stuck in the past Positive it's not going to last Some of us don't want to spread our wings and fly Some of us don't know how to say goodbye Some of us think we have few chances
"You seem like you're doing better," They say, with hesitation - On halfway-bad days I still feel it, A screaming coal burning itself Through the tissues of my lungs - "I'm definitely doing better,"
You're not supposed to love me.  I’m supposed to relive the past that has taught me to be wary of love that cares about me. 
I don't even wanna live anymore Please God  Make somebody blast my fuckin brains out  I wanna jump  Jump and fly down 40 feet  And splat right down on the concrete  I'm a fuckin failure 
Oh why dont you love me h why dont you look at me like you used to look at her like you used to smile at her

Is it courage or cowardice ? To cover up the tears when you wanna cry out loud; Is it curse or a gift ? To put up a smile when you really don't want to; Oh does finding answers to these do some good ?

How, why, what, is this real, for real. This wasnt apart of the deal. For you I would rob, steal, even kill at will. I want to get off this ride, going in circles like a ferris wheel.
It seems that I'm running in circles...Realizing something should be changed,Making efforts I think I've got progress,But, in fact, I'm trapped in a cage.

Sitting alone in a dark room Wondering if everything that happened was true As the silence grows stronger and my heart beats faster I'm now laying down, lost and confused
A day out of 366 Stars spun around and spanned  My words spiced with salts of a hysterics The loneliness of which is damned But joy I keep, is even   And when I sip, the life goes on
What happened to me? Once excitement, now fear what happened to me? I burned with desire, now I burn in shame; what happened to me?   Fear fear fear fear

He drives his Lincoln fast down those dirt roads. Too fast sometimes. He isn’t suicidal, or maybe he is. He wouldn’t mind if the car flipped, it was exhilarating, to say the least.
Cut me open tear me apart, This life wasn't chosen, so rip out my heart.   Replace it with stones so that I may turn cold.   Only then will I not care and still know
 A Strange Reality ------------------------   I know nothing of love They say it is divine, "You'll know it just when you fall in". They know nothing at all.   I think it's so rare.
My first real fall was when I scraped my knee.My first real scar was from a needle piercing my skin, in the wrong spot.My first real cry was when pointless things hurt me.
When the summer sets and the last pages are closed put me in postscript.
The big bad wolf, that’s my name My monstrous appearance is the one to blame These claws for clawing, These jaws for gnawing.   When I come near,
I’m in love with the kilometres between us, I’m in love with the distanceBetween your eyes and my eyes and your arms and my arms and your place and mineI like that you like what I like and that I like what you like
  There was once a time in a far off place A town sat about a strange, but not unfamiliar, monolith Stood there a palace built on hate and waste  
For almost a moment, my head careens my heart flutters, my legs lean. But I open my eyes: it was only a dream.   Not even a dream; perhaps a wish a touch in the dark, a lipless kiss.  
There once was a lonely Giant Who hated all others, he said He would let no one live with him He sought no-one’s company   Who hated all others, he said
I wake up to disaster. I go to be in loneliness. I spend the whole day in depression. If you love me then say so, but I wont believe you anyways.
Water rushes without the light All alone, a lonely plight A whoosh of air, I’m not alone A bright, bright light Your face then shone.  
Does anyone listen To the bird perched upon the tree. The one who tries to listen The one who always sees.     Does anyone listen
Face plant off the third floor  The blood splatter paints a pretty picture of why he didn't matter And who's sadder the committer or his encouragers Such a shame he had no one around to feel his hurt 
Let's say hello And bid us adieu When we dont even know What we're going through.
my eyes won't get any less redand my heart won't get any less deadif you were to buy me everything in the world,or lay me down in bed
What if Dad bought us a Volkswagen And taught us how to drive I’d take it into the woods And drive and drive and drive
I pitched a tent at Kayoke Among desert sands around Grown tired of reg’lar folk To wilderness I am bound   I sang a song so merry
Dearest Lover, You are not under my covers.   Where are you, my Love? I was promised I would find my dove.  
Once upon a dark night 
He’s taken the lead Left me in the dust I raised But he’s still looking at me, pulling me through instead The world he’s lived in, explosions of color and haze,
America is great, Full of perfect people, Speaking perfect language.   They say speak child, you are now free. For here is America, the land of opportunities.   So I speak.
Please forgive me for what I have done, This weight on my chest weighs a ton. The life I have I fearfully regret, But what I've done I'll never forget.   My arms are scarred here and there,
A tick tock noise from the clock in my room Knocks my head on and on Till it wakes me up in the middle of the night, So I found myself looking right at the ceiling My body starts sweating
I don’t eat strawberry-flavored Candies, save Laffy Taffys or Starbursts. I don’t eat oranges   Or brown bananas. I’ll only eat
Hello, My name is broken A heap of letters left on a tattered floor Shards of my identity, opaque from the settling dust   Hello,
A friend asked me how to be a writer.I wanted to say,lock yourself in a room,scream until you have a poem and no voice.Open your veins and bleed until you know that your bones
I write because  if I didn’t you’d find me dead with a pen by my side.  I try to break free from the bones that control me,
he shut the door as he shut his eyes Seconds ago he kissed his brother goodnight Minutes ago he told his parents he loved them Hours ago he stared at his teachers blankly Days ago
Settling downward, the road’s early haze Unable to see height of trees as I gaze The world now shadowy, and dim, and shy Seamless grey stretches across the chilled sky.  
I once wandered the lands- with nothing but the dust. The journey I took- I had no one to trust. My year long journey- began in the spring It was at this time, lonliness began to sting.
  What would you do if this happened to you? Wake up in a room with no one else left to hold With no one but yourself and these thoughts all alone
They say we’re all unique Each perfectly imperfect But I see nothing good in my reflection My head fills with self-loathing Never pretty enough
Ten years agoWe met in school<br>I was a nerd with glasses<br>And you were overweight<br><br>High school found us much the same<br>I was no cooler, and you were no thinner<br>But you had my back, and I helped yo
I remember.  I remember the fears. I remember the confusion. I remember the pain. I especially remember the lonliness. I remember the tears. I remember the depression. I remember the disdain.
Love the one you’re with For you don’t know if today Will be the closing Of what you once secured The belief that love stays true
One step forward Two steps back   Is this ever true   One move closer  Two backtracks   Creates new paths for you   One truth found Two lies learned  
A year ago I thought nothing could get worse It will get better- After all, it is January the first Underneath the bedsheets, I cried and cried Silence is fine- After all, it is better than to confide
I am, A worshipper, Of the heart, bound to find Strange ways to fill the loneliness, In it. #cinquain
Who are they? They won’t let me know. I was just 3 When they took me home Now I’m 16! I ask who they were.
I reached out to the sun, but he burned me No matter how I approached, I was scorched. The sun seemed to burn brighter each day for months I wanted to be close, to feel the warmth
That's not how it works,Being a wallflower.There aren't perks.The reality is, to make friends,you have to talk first.  
I am not lonely. I am not lonely. I am not lonely. I am not lonely! I am not lonely.   I AM NOT LONELY.  
Since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being a ballerina.   And now look at me: Caught up in this twisted dance for fools.   I wished for nothing more than to have stage,
I started it again yesterday, slicing open my skin with a broken razor blade. I hid the broken peice of sharpened metal in my makeup compact, and I cried all day. 
I still hear the children playing, They have their own homes now. I still hear the horses running, They have passed away now. I still hear the rain falling,
When all is said and done When the light of day is gone When the single key is turned And the old dust greets  the lights are put on, When the familiar lends to desire And the beautiful
There are things in my nightmaresThat come out to dance and playThings that I rather wishWere very far away. But that is the nature of nightmaresTo come and try to stayAnd no amount of pleading
Expression: showing emotions through colour -- Music -- words -- creation. You give other people insight Into your feelings, because Humans Are Social Creatures. When you're healthy and young,
This thing, is breaking me apart, But it keeps me breathing, Even though my heart is bleeding, It over comes me from the inside out,   Strands of pink, faded dull,
Fear of being myself. Fear of being someone else. Fear of rejection. Fear of my brother and his harsh words that harden my heart.
I am cut from a seperate fabric than the rest. My material is a vibrant red while everyone else's is a pale blue. They try and tell me, "You are blue! Just like us." Yet I am not color blind. I see the difference. 
Where are you now? You promised to always be by my side. You promised to never leave You said this day will never come But yet, you had to leave Why? Why are you gone? What did I do wrong?
The Wolf in the sky howled until he grew big enough to swallow the moon. And there was no light left but the stars which he could not reach.
This is goodbye.   Goodbye to the changing trees, Who always have an opinion on life.   Goodbye to the pack of wolves, Who always try to rip me apart.  
I wish i could show you, What this really means, I wish I could tell you, How I really feel, I wish you would listen, But my voice is too small to hear.   I want to raise my voice,
The demons live, They live inside me.   They tell me not to eat, They tell me to cut.   They tell me I'm not good enough, They tell me nobody cares.   And I can't escape them,
Have you ever met someone, And thought that it was for real, And that the friendship would last forever?   Have you ever had that person stab you in the back? Or lie straight to your face?
Chameleons have it lucky, They can blend into their surroundings and dissapear almost completely.   Sometimes I feel a bit like a chameleon, Invisible to the world around me, But the only difference is that,
Kneeling against these creaky doors,Lazily carving incisions,To take back my skin from the pain,Then I decided to spew out,A chalice of apparent relief,And fall into the puddle,Letting the tears benumb the stench,My insides clenched onto the despa
Do you remember that night? When you and I lay on that couch, That couch with stains from different nights, And you said you’d never live my side, Come rain come shine?  
Alone I was when I sat underneath the trees Somewhere far in an abandoned park   A slight wind came as a cold breeze   
I used to talk to trees. Often I sought their branches to hold me when I felt my body to small to contain what I held. They would talk me back into it- taught me how to grow inside a husk 
The shadow of you lingersAround me.It mimics the feel of Your touch,Your warmth,Your lips. I teases me with memories that are better as memories. 
Her hypnotizing eyes, so full of life look at me. Her luscious lips stretch into a charming smile. She reaches out for me. Her warm, sweet breath hits my face. I embrace her, but only manage to hug empty air.
You're the one I'm waiting for. I know you'll never know. The times I dreamed of you, the nights I woke from fear of losing you. I'd give my world to you. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you.
Long, frightening fingers of darkness stretch. My eyes I force shut. My soul it tries to fetch. The evasive sleep, Into a dark abyss I slip.
Her eyes remain glued to her scruffy shoes, As she roams aimlessly around the streets of uptown Nairobi. She wants to keep her eyes veered away from the world, So nobody can see just how wet they are.
There are a few things you should know, About me and my life, And what I've learned to not show. You don't know what I feel, I keep it well hidden, But maybe I shouldn't,
Behind this stained glass wall I see you. Broken and alone Behind the color and perfection.   Countless times, I have tried to break through, But unfortunately
Drown myself in music, blasting it loud 
You may be wondering How your pain goes unnoticed. Feeling like you're screaming, And nobody is even looking in your direction. How is it possible That nobody hears?  
Loneliness Lying in this darkened room Trapped inside my thoughts. I feel heat creep up behind me Next thing I know Your body Pressed against my body Oh, how I've missed this. Slowly,
STEAL ME! Oh Turquoise Soleil, Stuff me in your sack of toys to play. OH just take me away in that Santa Clause bag.   Strip away my loneliness, Give me to a friend.
STEAL ME! Oh Turquoise Soleil, Stuff me in your sack of toys to play. OH just take me away in that Santa Clause bag.   Strip away my loneliness, Give me to a friend.
She sits on the edge of her bed.Inside, she feels so dead.She has mastered the art of hiding.Yet she is now tired of trying.She is thinking maybe it should end.Not the relationship, not the feelings,
Stretching on and on For miles and miles Everything pure white And dull gray And dirt brown A path of gravel Your footsteps echo In the silence By themselves Nobody else
An ache in your chest Dunno where we stand Happy memories ablaze Standing hand in hand Where it all began Nobody can say The end was unexpected A world fell apart
Stability wasn't a thing I would have known But it got better as I had grown I thought it was the reason that I cried But it's really because of my sadness inside What am I supposed to do
It’s Christmas. My first without you. I try to act happy, but I can’t. I want you back with every once in my body!
Time is valuable  It is not malleable I cannot change it  But use it like money, I can only spend it   I took the time to discover And the rumors I had to uncover
Oh, the lovely corner, a home and friend of mine. Oh, the lovely corner, your comfort is divine.   Oh, the lovely corner,
“Nothing” written for those who think that there is nothing to love.   Nothing never disappoints because there was never anything to compare it to.
A white cloak wraps around me I’m not cold, not on the outside I pull it closer still Maybe I can stop the cold   I see you walk away
You are not alone, but your mind makes you think that way. What if you're actually alone, Just not accepting of the fact? Maybe. Maybe I am.
You're nothing, but a low life, not even wondering where all the bad went, but she is.   She's nothing, but a low life, loved with all her heart, and still failed to be faithful.  
A girl walks up to the gates of a new school, her yellow dress sways in the breeze as her parents call farewell. The school stands looming above her Laughter of other children surround her
The fog fills the city Smoky tendrils wrap around the silence The moon is hidden, barely a whisper of its light survives The fog shadows everything  
She pens her whispers into hushed handwriting. shouts her fears, thoughts, angers into the cold clean air.   slinks through every inhalation that passes,
You don't need my confession To know that I'm struggling with depression it follows me everywhere I go and I wish it wouldn't show I can bury my face in other things
How do I fill this void I have tried distractions and diversions But I am still a very sad person. I try not to lose my writing passion
The boy stood at the edgeHe looked up and down, side to sideHe just wanted to end the fight the one he called his life
I often hear people ask, for fun, "What would you bring on a deserted island?" Some think of survival and bring their gun. Others want to explore in the highlands. In all seriousness, what would I need?
Everyone needs food, water, and air, Most people need parents and care. Some people need games and music, But only a few need others to share.   Truly, I am one of those few. 
Though You only work on wi-fi I still need You by my side. I wouldn't use You to call anyone Since no one would come. The only thing I desire Is for Your volume to be higher 50-60-100 songs
If the yearning has passed and I am no longer aghast in the rooms of my heart, I’ll be going now.   If desire has ceased dripping from solicitous lips, the future is a yawning abyss,
Somebody once said No Man Is An Island, But I'm on this Island immersed in desolation without you,
To be stuck on a virtually deserted island is painful enough... No technology. No family. No friends. Food?!!?! Ok. So maybe I can do without the technology. It'll be better for my brain...
Eyes were like a window Transparent as glass Revealing nothing but the slate concrete and ruffled grass beyond them Gripping his sky-clad hand hard, We trekked down the quiet road
Never have I stared at the leaves of a tree for so long. Listened to the acorns dropping from above. Felt among the stars in my loneliness. For I am in search of something, some balance.
mine is the house with the jungle yard,where snakes may catch you off your guard,but the snakes eat the rodents and the birds eat the bugs,and i peak at the school bus through a wet shrub,
An Illusion is defined by something that is or is likely to be wrongly perceived  Or interpreted by the senses I was once like that, dillusioned and deceived Thanks to my naivity, I had faced dired consequences  
I lay here, sun burning, hot air.   I'd shake with laughter, like the trees when wind rushes by, if only you were here.   My mind is the wick of a lit candle, slowly burning out.
Please, let’s keep our delusion going. I’ll beg you through the seasons, Stay wrapped up in my sheets.   Stay close to me, my darling. I’ll write love songs on your skin,
Standing on the highest cliff, Overlooking the forest, She nods to the caring hawk That wonders what could possibly be wrong With such a perfect creature. She watches over the sleeping cougar,
I feel like I've beenSitting on a swingWaiting for someone to push meBut sunset comes
I am empty. A vacant house. Through my halls, silence reigns.  There is no one to turn on the lights of the room. There is no proof of life within me. There is only an empty shell.  Until it happened.
Toto, we are not in Kansas anymore, We are neck deep in denialshouting from our lungs,We are starving head cases.We are two am phone calls to our mothersaying, Mom, I messed up.
Stranded on an island... I am alone. In an osasis I find some peace, I am alone. In the dark night without heat... I am alone. Wading in the blue lagoon under the hot sun, I am alone.
I try to fill those I know they eat at your heart Never again will it close
say whats in the crowded space above your nose open your mouth and say it  what about the backlash what about the pain come hither  no will not shall not 
I hope I always remember  
The silent air tonight says more Than anything I've said before. It’s filled with the words I cannot speak. Are you too deaf? Is my voice too weak?
I just want to know what it feels like To matter.   To matter to someone, something, I just want to know how it feels.   It seems like everyday I make everyone feel appreciated, Feel wanted,
One mistake can suffocate The tears I've wept the nights I never slept trying so hard not to be unkept but all I do is cause a rause I have this day of dark clouds Tumultuous days gripping my life
Green is the first coloryou found home in becausethe grass you trod with barefeet was never disagreeable. It almost felt like itwanted you, and you’d soonforget what that’s like.
On this earth we are wondrous creatures we hold so much beauty and promise. It’s our only instinct to change the world to be remembered in one way or another
will They find the body? will She care? Finally. I can't get the smell out of my head The lights dance, faltering like they did over the shattered glass
Living, What's the point? Without friends and family, Why am I in this joint? Without love, Without care, What am I gonna do? I simply cannot do this Without you. It's true.
I lie here in your sordid cave, littered with cold light and the stench of blood, dividing my heart. I can still feel where it once throbbed, my now bloodied chest, yawning for its return.
Laughter fills the room but a place empty No flowers were to bloom Just a late night memory   They come and they go
When I thought about my life, I knew I couldn’t live without My friends, my family, my love And all my things, scattered about.   Except my world has quickly crashed,
The rain poured, and I stayed inside. Plenty of clouds, not a drop of light. Can't go outside, so I turn on a song Started feeling lonely before too long. Come on over, we can dance together.
Now, as I look upon this empty room  I am alone, but not quite lonely. Voices carry on, with no face.  Footsteps with no person.  What I have realized is.  There is no one left. Everyone's gone. I'm alone. Again. But.
I cuddle my secret teddy bear at night Holding him close to my chest so tight In the midst of loneliness he can be my friend Someone to be there, even if it's pretend For I may be young or I may be old
Heart sick, a sticky nauseating feeling residing in your chest, cemented goo, the trigger of an urgent need for elimination. Alarming the body that something is amiss, frightening, albeit recognisable.
Wings down And at rest All alone   Questioning why, Why was I left
Your words fell like grace and warmth They rolled down my shoulders like the water in the shower I could breathe when they consumed me I was safe as they drowned me I wanted to live inside them
There are moments when the Silence Threatens to destroy me. When the lack of noise is pressing down And I’m not sure I can breathe.  
Imagine this huge castle- and in this castle, you’re the king. Or a queen or whatever. But there’s nobody to serve you- and yet you’re happy to be alone and rule a world entirely your own.
Pretty face, heart not yet stone; run the world but feel alone. Heartless friends are what I know; if they care it doesn’t show. Always giving all my heart, always loyal from the start. Change my looks change my ways anything to make them stay.
and I walked outside and nearly broke my neck trying to watch the stars because that’s where I came from they tell me but if the galaxies are in my bones
I have yet to feel his presence on my life since I was a child, I have yet to see the power that he held over me in my times of need and happiness,  have yet to see what and how his mind influenced mine through the arid days of summer to the frigi
my safe haven has always been the library, nestled among shelves upon shelves of beautiful, beautiful books old with new and new with old a mixture of the best and the worst of society,
I haven’t written in a while, and maybe that’s because my stomach turns when I think about writing. See every time I pick up a pen with the thought of pouring out my feelings, my brain turns to you.
They say it gets easier as you get older That you stop being scared and your only fear is being late to work If that's true, then why am I sitting here rocking back and forth
Who am I? I am the new definition of loneliness if it ever needed one I am unseen I am alone I am unwanted Trapped in this place I can't call home, in a city so dead This is who I am  
Some people are given a superpower. A power known and wanted by many.
My brain is taking complete control and it just won't stop. I keep shaking all the way to my soul; I can feel my heart drop. My hands go over my ears,
This artist is prisoned, In thoughts of grassy head. Many things describes him, But few expresses. He is empty with childhood memories, Away from freedom of another soul.
To be touched and crushed by something that I least expected it from. It came close to my heart, but killed my soul when it was done.
When I walk to school with headphones in
Loving One who Never Even Looks at You
The core of my affection  something he will never see.  I shoved it down beneath  and I never let it free.  He must think he is hated  Because I never acknowledged him.  But when he is around 
I have these feelings trapped inside that cannot be put into words.
When I am aloneNo one can hurt me anymoreNo one is able To tell me a lieAnd injury my precious heartBut there is still pain
No matter what I write Behind the screen of doubts A mental prison of night Obscured by the formidable shouts
This poem is a conversation between two people. The colors represent the person in the relationship who is speaking:   One night the storm came back to claim me as its own
bruised up barely breathing
There are two pieces of me,One of which you'll never see.It's shattered and broken-And shall remain unspoken.  
Dry sobs are the worst.   The tears you feel coming But never let escape.   The repairs for a sick heart Poisoned by your own stubborn ways.   When you know how much it hurts
The standard brand Walking through hand in hand Clad empty stares Hair tucked behind ears Self and Clone You are never yourself No one can help you Yourself and your clone All alone?
Don’t help me I don’t need your help I can do everything by myself But thanks for offering anyway   Don’t sit with me I just love to be alone
It happened again. You are inside your bathroom, And you just locked the door.
As we sit here in this liminal space Do you feel that? Do you feel something? Do you feel anything at all? Truck stops along the 5 and The middle of the woods High school hallways on a Sunday.
falling leaves
Message seen 3:04 am, September 15.
i can be alone; i have been alone for quite some time; it’s fine, i will be  alone, but don’t worry.
. Her heart is white A color so pure
I write for the night,
feeling the red, white, and blue shadows
Maybe it was the way you talked Or maybe it was the way you walked Maybe it was those moments you looked in my eyes and told me im beautiful Maybe it was the lies you told that kept me interested 
Abandoned Deserted Isolated Solitary Solo On your own By yourself You are your own company Everyone’s felt this before You know it’s true
My body has a language my mind just can't explain I'm falling out of this world and into a frame Insanity never came Labeled on a shelf, the only person I cant make happy is myself.
The kid sitting alone at lunch  Looks shamefully down at his lap He doesn't want to see everyone talking 
Brilliant flame among the dull ice shines brightly, bearing happy thoughts, but among the dead throng of ice,  nothing burns or melts, but grows icier still. Why? Comet bright and bold caressing the heavens
Though  many people surround me, I still feel alone. Even having someone to call my own, I still feel alone.
In a dark room, There are trembling lips, Her eyes are crystal, Her lips still perfectly molded. The smile won't seem to leave.   No matter where she sits, No matter how much she crumbles,
The walls are high
My "best friends" don't even want me around,  So most of my time is spent underground, Spilling my thoughts and some tears onto paper, Hoping someone notices before I volitalize into vapor 
Her fingers tremble with the unsaid words that urge to ink the blank page. From the green depths of her eyes lay sadness and tinges of regret. Across her arms are slashes made by herself.
Birth, Lunacy, Death
I was ok Before you Anyway But you came And went Left me standing in ruins And crying in a downpour All those attachments I made Are shredded ribbons
Orange light seeps through slightly parted curtainsThe room is dark but for a rail in the nightThis bright yet dull orange lightThat guides the way down a pathYet creeps from behindStalking and waiting
Incarcerated within my own thoughts
Our clan is crumbling behind closed doors sealed with pride and locked by sorrow, seen by all yet known by none.   The walls are glass but windows opaque reflect suspicion
She's the Girl.....
I'll Never Be Free  
Crying, screaming, with a runny nose until your voice is hoarse,  suffocating slowly from all the noise even though there isn't any force, 
When a house is dirty, we clean it. We sweep away the dust and scrub away the stains until there is nothing left to remind us of the wreckage
  Memories are a part of me, They drift apart from me. So many thoughts, just like my old matchbox cars, Simpler times---remember pogo sticks and toy guns,
I travel by train and I look out My window, my legs are too close to the grey-man beside me Headphones in, power chords, progressions I am progressing, and my knees Need a shave; they catch on the silk of his suit.
 Our life is full of lies and misconception My presentation of myself is a lie if only if someone can look behind my smiles into my lonely heart if only if someone can tear down my walls once more
It's a big world for sure. There's no doubt about that And honestly, that's ok.  Except for my loneliness.   What with the world being so big.
Who is that lonely girl Sitting on the corner of the street Who is that lonely girl Not saying a word while she eats Who is that lonely girl Wearing the outdated shoes Who is that lonely girl
Hey again.    It's just me. I got nothing to say No games to play No place to lay It's only me.   Im here by myself.
and you used to come here with me- but i guess that segment of our relationship has  come to a close and i don't know if i can wash the taste of you out of my mouth forget the scratch 
The inspiration escapes me today. Between me fathoming my thoughts, And what I could dream of, And what I could think of, The effort escapes me. And I do not feel the purpose.
every morningI wakefor tea,but I'd ratherwaketo findyoulying nextto me 
Immune to love immune to pain Feelings, thoughts unfelt, in vain Her eyes aligned to vacancy Trapped in remains of broken dreams A cold facade, call her a fraud But if only you could see,
She asked.
Emptiness.   That’s honestly how it all feels.  
Thumbing through the past, I remember when Kenny Kwan punched me in the face and broke my glasses.   I spit up blood like a spittoon and floods of tears drowned my words.
It is cold, and I am lonely like an indigent beggar in the borough of Manhattan where the rich and the poor live in their ghost worlds.   I yell at the wind and it roars back.
I saw you last night, stumbling over sentences and pretending to be fine. All glassy eyed, nearly weeping through your own punch lines.
For as long as I can remember, I have always felt so lost;
When you're left alone with no family to turn to self confidence and worth becomes hard for you Your confidence is shot your dreams diminished never has anyone felt so finished   
I miss having hickies; you still leave me  love notes, once in a while.   But never on my skin.    Love is not love when you have to think about it. 
Why did you go? For that I'll never know. 
Serene, still and calm I lie, Stretched beneath the heavenly sky, Lapping the dewy grass around me, Silently I ripple and smile.   For long, long days, I watch the birds overhead fly,
She started to twirl.
I am tired and lost in my empty world Looking for answers to my questions Where do I belong? Where do I go next? What am I missing? Am I in the wrong life? Is it my hair, too short and too straight?
Loneliness circles overhead
I have lived in the past In the dark and the light I know good and bad
I don't know what I want. All I know is what I've been told. But are my thoughts truly my own? Does that make them mine, Or are they something instilled?  
They call me loner
When Blue Reflects Upon Waves   I’m staring, always staring, forever staring, No focus in sight, yet a bright future yields token, Novel, arguably plausible possibilities.
One day.
It's not how I look, Or how I walk. It's how I react, When something's gone wrong.   As life goes on, There will be up's and down's. I try to survive, With the least amount of frowns.
Young in age but aged so young Denied no hymnal yet to be sung. Against Her good nature, no heed to Her grace Death stole a lamb with no wool to replace. Left in the Valley, taken tomorrow
BEEP! The alarm goes off You wake up You get ready You go to school You come home You go to sleep And the cycle starts over  
  i speak for those who have lost their courage to speak  for those whos words run to the tip of their tounges just to retreat back to the back of the throats back to where they came from 
As I walked on a busy street, Side by side with random people Seeing variety of souls when eyes meet I see joy, love, hatred and trouble   Across the street I see an old lady
It’s 12:08 
You sit in your room thinking of all possible ways overdose Hanging Shooting Jumping They constantly run through your head You cant decide which one You go to bed
A structure alone Of jointed bones With a thin layer Of mortal beauty Fair skin and dark eyes Fair heart and dark mind Oh I pray that this Is all there's to me
She completely tore him apart.Molecule by molecule he started to evaporate,only there was no cycle of reincarnation this time.
To cut, to release The anger exploding out like a beast From the pain my family inflicts Becomes physical abrasions on my wrist But my wrist alone does not suffer My left arm now also encounters
Do I know you? The words you pronounce  are so ugly and dirty, But you say they fit me just perfectly.  Do I know you?  No, I do not  but here I am lying on the floor
“Perhaps this is the end of the line.”
Dead, rotten flesh falls from my face Mouth agape, jaw hanging my a thread of skin Eyes yellowed, and maggots crawl out from every orifice in my body   I hear some then I hear none
I wonder what it felt like
With a world filled with hatred, a world or sorrow Maybe no one would notice if I disappear tomorrow In the heat of all the chaos, in all the confusion Within the earth I created fusion
It's been a long year round our feet still barely on the ground I've talked you off the cliff more times than I can count I've learned some things to say but I'm still learning every day
The Reason I cry: to cry for all who feel pain The Reason I laugh: to show my pain The Reason I sing: to tell a story The Reason I talk loud: to make my soft and meek voice be heard
You're falling. You try to grab onto something, but everything escapes from your grasp. You're bawling. You don't know how to escape from this life of pain. Darkness is all there is.
I see you there hurting,
You can say that I'm growing. I guess you can say that, but, my feet remain tender  and my legs remain weak. So built in appearance, so honored in name. However, I wish I could make my name become sane.
i feel trapped secluded like in a closed box i look around faces all around me passing me by forgetting im here i yell and scream but no one stops
The face I keep inside of me Struggle to keep a hold of me
Don't try to hold me For I am broken glass   Don't try to... Please, I beg you For everyone who holds me They will bleed And bleed And bleed 'til they're empty  
Me, myself, and I The only people Who've walked my shoes And lived my life They were there Every step of the way When I fell, they fell When I laughed, they laugh
There are three degrees of separation Mental, physical, and social The most common of these is physical Anyone who sees can see That those who do not touch Are separated physically
Awkwardly fitting into the other gears Grinding closely hiding my fears Tic-Toc, the other gears keep me moving My time spent is my only doing   Every second spent stranded on a island never to return,
A cold day But I have to get through it Can you imagin feeling what im feeling Do you know what i go through Even if you think you do , you dont For right now ill let you think you do
Darkness creeps in from every corner. Gnawing into your soul. Fear of the world around you,
  For what is a heart if it is not brave?   What is it for   if not for feeling   the courage to invite every stranger   into Its home   To
“This is the way the world endsThis is the way the world endsThis is the way the world endsNot with a bang but a whimper” T.S. Eliot – Hollow Men
Mind alteration? Mine’s naturally alternative. What do you say to the dreamy kite-flyers When all your life you’ve been high?
A last scoop of dry earth Falls upon the sad little hill Pay the good man; he's earned well his fill
may not belong to a family now, 
“It’s okay, I’m tough”        I’m stronger than they know “It’s okay, I’m tough” I say, And yet I’m so alone… I stretch a slender smile wide across my o’erdrawn face
“I had a family once,” muttered the old man through his gruff and straggled beard, in the tone bearing the remnants of a great tragedy that ripped out a piece of him, strewn across the desert and left to dry.
Look across the glass-flat sea

Stabbing in your heart,
Maybe she liked the pain, Hell, maybe she loved the pain. Or maybe she just misses the pain. Because you see, it's a different kind of pain.
The chaos, the frustrations It all seeps from your pores like an infection How can something so positive become negative within an instant? You crush and demolish As though you are a dump truck
Everyone eventually leaves this tangible place called earth. No matter how one feels about themself, they will impact someone. How do you know if you've impacted a person?
She longs to be different, Because her greatest fear is that she could be her. Flesh and blood that created her and brought her to life is the same thing that has haunted her. How can one destroy such innocence?
If you can't read the photo it goes-   Here I sit in this rut once more, waiting, longing. I wish I could stop but it only goes just, beat, beat, beat. And the raging thump continues just
Silent tears concealed by a pathetic façade. Soundless suffering, weeping. A voiceless shrill cloaked by false smiles. Muted agony, raw and searing. A torturous solitude
Being vivacious is my exact definition Right? Of course, It is the veil to my grand facade
As time pass life begins to give a whole new start. As I'm tired something tells me to keep going. As the wind blow God whispers child hold on As my eyes blink back
I am alone A single soul Who's heart is cold Bound by the thought of everyday madness Kept awake by the sobs of every night sadness  The tears feel like fire upon my eyes The days end in long sighs
Do you really have to leave So soon? Little larks and loons… Wings beating on a window But unable to break the glass,
To miss the ones you love Across highways and mountains and seas
The clouds are billowing overhead
I am the beast The one you look at and instantly know is freak I am the beast The one you say is so weak I am the beast The one who aches in the corner trickling tears like the rain falls
I pictured my dream  A life-long craving to love But no one to love
For all the love I have to give No one can learn to live with it I'm restless, weary and fading Straining to remain the same Another date, another day No love shines in this shade
How is it with so many people around, adoringly screaming on about how much they love you and how you're an amazing person.
SilenceDisruptedThe lap of wavesThe cry of a gullPassing overAlien formsFormless featherless thingsNaught but ripples
Billions of brains, minds, imaginations One like mine
She mourned for shattered hearts,
She disrupted the silence with a breath, A breath that accompanied a soft and yet distinguished sigh. Not of relief, but of sincere loneliness.
In a nearby field, there lives a rose, as wild a creature as an unbridled stallion, an old friend of mine.
Alone. Alone is how I feel when there's no one near, alone is how I hate to be. And when there's tears coming down and my smile is upside down, I hate that it's just me.
She fluttered in through my heart's window,
Alone Without others I am isolated Depression surely follows me Lonely
It’s fine. It’s okay. I’ll forgive from now until forever, Until I waste away. I have no problem with you, Or whatever it is you feel at this time... ... Even if it is pure hate,
  Ew, you stink! Go away Take a bath, wear deodorant.
We broke up two months ago Had a fight haven't talked since But I swear I can still feel your kiss Like it's tattooed on my lips.
One and only friend sometimes by my side.  
  There is a special worth that comes in knowing
This is bad I feel like I’m slipping. Back down the dark hole of no return. I don’t know how many more times I can do this. And manage to claw my way back up. 
Behind every smile there's pain, the hurt of not being pretty and used. The pain of only being wanted for what's low. Everyday theres a cut in my soul, then the tears start to roll.
The razor blade held to his wrist shows pain, mourning, and anything else.  You see, he just wants someone to understand him, care for him, and love him as their own.
I feel the sunshine kiss my face like an old friend Like a coffee shop meeting After a long time apart. The warmth brushes past my face in faint traces Of smiles and laughter and past graces
I planted you a rose; sat and watched it bloom the rose didn't feel me watching, or notice that I was trying to forget you.   Who do roses grow for? Surely mine for you,  
Screaming and yelling ALL I HEAR   Blame and denial SILENT TEARS
I told my mom I was depressed Empty Alone She told me it was just "Teenager Things" Like it was a normal occurrence to all who progress through these hell years. I've made one therapist cry
As my spirit seems to wander past every thought I had in mind, I find that those around me are running out of time. I am falling through the crevices and holes in their stories.
Tears run down her face
panic arches in my gut, deep and visceral pain  and i can't breathe, can't see, can't hear  anything but the relentless beat of a butterfly's wing against my rib cage
I sit in my room all distraught         I think of a far away land.
I don't smile often. The world doesn't know why. I don't smile at you because I don't like you. I don't smile because I am terrified of not  receiving one back. I don't speak often.
-Everyone changes, one way or another -So, if you're trying to stay the same don't even bother -Whether it's you appearance, attitude, or religious angle -Everyone changes, even the Devil was once an Angel
The lonely room swallow the scene. Time accounts for the dusty surfaces while nursing the strange reality of insanity that is still fresh in the mind of the sane. The lonely candle flickers darkly
There's a peculiar type of loneliness incurable by just your company.
I am lost in this lonely world With my troubled past And I can't escape from these memories That will forever last
Just when I start to get used to things the way they are, they become unraveled.  Life around me is unraveling, my mind is unraveling.  I cannot seem to find a foot hold in this fragile ground.
So lost, still lookingWhere's the never found?I gaze with fixed eyesThis dark quest has me cemented My heart is dementedMy whole solution is buried Underneath the land of the hopeless
C#m: With beauty was she blessed Emaj: Yet in stride left a curse—   (Simile)
Her heart is filled with questionsnot knowing how to feelshe peers out the window
I can't do this anymore your words are drawing me in, but you're so far. I want you to be near me, on me, in me. I want to taste you, feel you, and know you. I want to lay beside you
There is no way a mom can say "that child is not mine" But for me things were different
LonelinessIt eats at me like aninfectious diseaseIt crawls on my skin and digs into it like bedbugsIt stifles my heart
Nothing I do can make me forget you, Everyday is your smile on my mind and your touch on my cheek, your eyes on mine as if we look away we'll go blind.
I cannot l
People don't listen, they push you down and say you have no voice. You hide in the shadows, wanting to speak but never knowing how. You have an opinion, but they say  it's not allowed,
I lay alone, dreaming of the comfort of my bed. I surely don't know the girl in the bunk next to me, or the girl above me. I wonder why the dark room that discredits  the light 
Today I arose to find you not there beside me. I don't know what part of me expected your prescence, but Your absence disappointed me just the same.
That moment when you’re deep In thoughtful conversation
I thought you would never leave, but you did. You grew up and moved away, started your own life. You left me here with the pain and the fear. You left, and you stopped calling, you stopped writing, you stopped texting and it hurt.
She found herself in darkness. The cold walls shielded her from the outside world. She locked herself in and was seperatied from the ones who love her. She wanted to cut her skin until she bled out.
thoughts are racing chasing the ideas of splendor away not because it's undesired but because it won't remain it won't stay contained exposed like a pose of darkness a silhouette in the distance
   I love you
Loneliness settles in Like the fog on a dark night Slowly creeping up to devour everything in its path The light shines down in the morning And the fog is pushed back,
Close eyes, see your dreams Close mind, feel our beams Hover night, why it is so long One shake, one shiver The night, will be cold Inisght, none will be seen Tickle Tickle Tickle
How badly I want it. Maybe it’s this time of year Maybe it’s my own conjuring, My own extrapolation My own imagined solitude. But it’s eating me from the inside out Devouring its way through my heart
I stand alone. Darkness is in every corner of the room, and the only light to reach me comes from a single window. What would it be like if I was out there? I wake every day and dress for town,
Question. Pain. Life. Mystery.
You may have lost yourself, But not me. I'll always have you in my memories. But now, you have family and friends there for you. Even though they'll get mad at you from time to time, But don't care.
They all look so happy    Cue smiles and laughter, no sign of any real disaster
You see them on the streets Inwardly crumpling bit by bit as they watch themselves fade into statistics If eyes could make tally marks,  their skin is a canvas of pale desolation
Pond Frogs   Chandleer Diamonds   Secrets Laughter   Safeness  Friendship   Confusion  Love   Screams Shouts  
She smells like something musky and quietly contained.
nervous and edgy you look at her
Lonely is the life I lead, Living only to see friends Taken up by token greed, Chasing after empty ends. Somber is the song I sing With no one left by my side, And dreams I had thought took wing
The world in a perpetual state of distraction;
i am in titanium cuffs locked by my inner thoughts im chained to a brick wall with chains crafted by my dark past i am bundled and gagged with rags weaved from my own fear and doubt and i have lost control.  
When I’m on the white sand shore in the world of my muse, I could swear that it is during the death of night that the world is most alive.  
The silence of your voice speaks volumes of pain. The butterflies in my stomach have flown to such great heights. You are precious china.
Sly grins and stolen kisses, one, two, three. Roasted chestnut hair falling on bronze skin, Piercing emerald eyes and a sculpted chin. A heart swells and bellows to be free. Dead child walking in living fantasy,
'round she goes like a carousel/ she was nothing (and nothing was her)   she was engulfed (in an iron grip) monday to sunday twitching and waiting (for something to snap)  
Staring out at the rain My heart shattered inside It’s the end of the world Where I felt alive My heart is on empty Hopeless, alone Lost in a world that had seemed like my own
(For all of the veterans we have forgotten on the home front.)  
they teach you in school if you take so much  away from another you get none  or a negitive well which am i None or Negitive?
Let me be the one you love. Let eveything that I do make you laugh. Wrap me in your warm, strong arms. Remind me that I'm the one you love. I long to have you kiss me. To tell me I'm not alone, unloveable.
Hey, there It's not over yet And this I can swear Don't fall into your own net I will stand by your side You will not be alone This is what I decide And we will go into the unknown  
By: Anyssa Q. E.    "Focus, I say" said the brain to the being. "But how can I focus, If I cannot stop feeling?" The heart was ashamed, in the shadow of the brain,
I love you so muc
sometimes I just don't understandhow the people who see how much love I have to offercan say, "I don't want it," and    turn   their   backs   on   me.
People do not seem to understand That there is a difference between Lonely and Alone  Lonely is striving for people, To fill this empty void
The first time I left my home,
Hated, lost, rejected, abused; Angry, hurt, broken, confused. I wish that i could disappear And find myself, away from here.   Stomping, slamming, pouting, rude; Immature, stupid, juvelnile, crude.
There's nothing like that feeling of wanting somebody by your side, Wanting to feel a touch of comfort by them,
Roses are red, violets are blue, Theres noone in this world, Id rather be with than you, Counting the petals, I love you, i love you not, Counting and counting, Connecting the dots,
I can now comprehend Why people equate winter to loneliness. I never used to understand it; Winter was always my favorite season. It was my passion.   I loved             -still love-
People that are lonely You are not the only There's always one who has it worse The world is diverse
Loneliness is such a bitter-sweet word Who else to you know better than yourself? The more you're alone, the more you know About what makes you tick.   Yet, what if there's things best unknown?
  Staring into the shiny blue The shiny blue enraptures me Let it save me Distract me From the self-mutilation I impose upon myself   From the nightmares dancing above my head
I am not a burning car wreck 
Admonished for daydreaming
These are the heart-shaped scars my lovers leave.
the world is not perfectly spherical
I have never been so hungry in all my life. The feel of the web as you start to move. My heart beats as the vibrations pour down the strings. So hungry for my dinner to fill my neverending appetite.
We click into socketsBut our bones know betterAnd keep us from being spaghetti dinner.
Bad with talking, Not with writing, Feels like everything flying, Come to ground in a sudden halt, With everything that was her fault. No amount of sorry can change the way, She has betrayed,
Sitting alone Feeling alone Where did everything go? I don't seem to know Time moves Things don't What else can occur No smile No frown No tears Don't know how I feel
Hiding behind walls, 
In solitude and in emptiness  Wretch the loneliness out of me. Carve out these shallow words. Hold me, I am scared of falling   Down to despair and misery. 
God, please quiet these conflicting voices inside my head Is one of them yours? It's getting harder to tell. I'm trying to filter them out.   My days and nights are blending together
Like how only the sky can feel the lightning, thunder and rain only i know the feeling of empty loneliness the true distance between me and happiness only i can fake the smile and hide the tears
Do not say goodbye, please hear me out first; I love you, and know that I’m on your side You say it’s done and it couldn’t get worse While you reflect on the tears you have cried.  
  I breathe better through a blanket Let it circulate the air I take in Let it suffocate me if in the end I’m pure   I rub its softness against my cheek
I’m running. Always running. I’m running through the forest, and I can’t look back. I can never look back. I want to look back, but I can’t.
I left my soul on your floor last night. Battered, and cold. The cracks in the tile cradled my scarlet letter, safely. Your hands strong; sweet.I was certain that this was honest—perhaps naive.
Unrequited Love, you see, that's my life story, There's times I wish I could go back to when you didn't exist to me. Nothing's worse than knowing the person you want to be with is a made up myth.  
If you're physically sick, do you have to participate in class?
  The bell resonates through the building They awaken from their cells and saunter into the halls They gather ‘round their water fountains and dented grey lockers
Dear Mister, Miss, Doctor "So-and-so", there's a pain in my heart that I can't let go You see that kid in the back with that sad, shy smile? Take a walk in his shoes for at least a mile.
You say we can come to you when needed We need you to listen when you’re called But you won’t be there when we’re crying You’re not there for us at all.  
The ocean shifted
The Small, wooden chair sits alone in the corner   So easily consumed by flame.   The Small, stoic boy sat alone in that corner   And maybe his cousin the same.
It's cold; hard winter but there's blazing heat The passion of young love feels so alive,
Loneliness; Just a state of mind,  is it not?  Mental ropes that bind,  Prisons that leave you to rot. No real punishment-  No test.  Save for this blinding pain in your chest. 
I can't explain how I feel about him. He makes my heart beat, my head spin. But it is impossible to be together. Because no matter what he can't forget her.   Forever alone, I'll find no love
The thoughts of you, they fill my head As I lie here in my cold and lonely bed. When you held me close and whispered forever, Now I realize your forever meant never.   Why did I let myself fall prey
I seem to hate myself the most when I am alone, I think I have come so far... yet it's my metaphoric brains I wish to blow. There is so much I want to accomplish, but so much more I need to let go.
It's too late to not notice why I'm upI hope you're up too.It's too dark out to see the light outside,I pray I am as blind as you. The text is so far astray from the nature of its home
The glass on my window moves back and forth The wind makes a pounding noise Every so often I have to check To see if someone is out there There never is anyone I am always alone And outside I can hear,
Warmth FallsFeelings FadeWhat you see, You see no moreConsumed in shadows of the pastDesperately wishing to break freeTo change...Just as the others haveFalse hope and Fraud love
I can't believe I fell for such a blackened heart, you meant everything and I did anything just to be with you, and I dont do that with anyone!!! but you make me cling on to you unwillingly...
The more I think, the more I wish I, pushed stop then hit rewind. I wish things would just go back to the way they were, I was indeed happier and felt your smile next to mine.
Here I am, Just Another Walking around just like any other Bounded by the lies I'm told Growing sad, as I grow old   Here I am, Just Another Grasping words of big brother
The butterfly that flits about Bringing joy to everyone Never stopping But once gone, Her absence goes unnoticed
Saturday night: you were at some party getting drunk and maybe hooking up – I was dancing alone on the soccer fields, high on starlight, feeling every atom in me spinning with life
Hey you! Yeah, you! Loser! Freak! Slut! Geek!   Are you the girl with the long hair, The long-sleeved shirts and empty stare, Who cuts herself 'cuz no one cares?
alone and unwanted is all she ever felt just her and her mom to take on the long nights the most pain she has ever delt she sites a father and his daughter surrounded with the glowing lights
Two hundred and thirty-two miles and four hours The world seems so stretched on these two feet He was forever and when I was with him
What is one but an empty shell whom you haven’t taken notice. As he stands, wavering in his insecurities, you mock him, unknowingly. How can he but admire from afar, knowing you suppress any interest even on a mutual level?
How can you admit to someone you love themWhen you can barely admit it to youThis love you so adamantly condemnThat won't disappear no matter what you doNo matter what you say no matter what you think
I roam from here to thereremaining discontent.My heart won't call this place a home,It must stay unattached.Everything is so unreal,I know it won't be long.Slowly I will drift away,
An ocean of my blood and tearskilling me with my own fears.I let myself drownin all this misery.You can trybut I won't let you save me.
Why am I always the one to get hurt?Does pain have no compassion?Let the fierceness of the stormCalm downCause the waves keep pushing meAway from life and reality
You would never believe where i had landed Far from the world but still empty handed does it change a thing at all i guess i'm not one to make that call to fall or stand was my only choice
You were once wild and free You were able to do whatever you want You were convinced that was who you were to be Life is huge like typing in big font   You feel free yet all alone
Loneliness A dark pit of despair Endless and dark Twisting spirals of madness Where despair becomes a physical pain Unto the heart A quiet solitude A certain empty silence
There are times that I miss you deeply. It comes like a crisp September wind. Your eyes, they dazzle all over me, Then I realize it’s all in my head. Your lips they kiss me tenderly,
Little Scarlet, little Scarlet, where have you been? Prancing upon my garden, did you spend the time that you were so generously given?
Little Scarlet, little Scarlet, where have you been? Prancing upon my garden, did you spend the time that you were so generously given?
Slut.Whispers within earshotWhore.Pointing in the hallwaysBitch.Glances and snickeringDisgusting, ugly, fat ass, dyke, loner, loser, waste of space.
Everyone leaves, for what reason I have no clue. I always think it's because of something I do. Maybe I try too hard or don't try hard enough. I can be so close or so cold
I’ve ask, and ask, and ask, Over and over again, What is my purpose? Am I supposed to be here? Why was I born? And over and over again, Questions went unanswered  
When days transfigure themselves from orange to gray I remember what there is to be so sad about the way so many things can change in the matter of minutes from orange to gray Then next is a dark blue
The night creeps up and it stings because it reminds me of the things that we used to mutter and sigh, laugh and cry to each other.   The daylight shines out our pain, Oh, but the night, 
Loneliness is not a state of mind. It is a choice. A way of life, A feeling.   A feeling that possesses, A feeling that deceives,
She washes away I see her wasting away I try to catch her, But I know she's gone It eats away at her body, day by day I can't help know she feels alone "WHY!?" I scream No one answers me
I lay my head down and think of my day Memories of you are put on display I try to sleep but my heart is racing Thoughts of you keep my mind always pacing I'm dreaming of your arms around my waist
Blue is red Red is green My thoughts are mud Mud is dirt Save for me What you have And I shall save for you Things I do not even have Be careful, Be careless
  When cold, they slowly spread Icy, sleepy, dead. When hot, it all moves so quick Bright, fiery, slick They say particles move by heat Is that not deep?   Do I move because I am deep?
  Blood trickled down her skin, She did it herself, She’s very proud of her win.   Red stains spread to the floor, Drip, Drop, Drip! Each new puddle is an exit door.  
Insecurity filled the teenager With agony, pain and woe. This emptiness will take her To a place where happiness is low. Heavyset is how they described her So she focused on losing weight.
When my Great Grandmother was near death in the hospital I was curious to see what an old person's butt looks like, so I kept standing on my tippie toes to catch a see
I can't help but feel that something's offYou avoid meFor reasons that I cannot seeI feel like the third wheelWas what we had before surreal?
Please just let me go homeI can't stay hereNothing satisfiesI can't even eatThe sight of food makes me sickI just really want to leave
I stare at the dark abyss of my bedroomDaydreams flow through my headAnd I wonderA question that has bugged me for years
Why I Hurt What is this pain in my chest?I'm supposed to be better nowOver it But I guess I still hurtBecause no matter whatThings will never be the wayThey used to be
  In the dark of the night I face my window with open eyes I hesitate to bring back happy thoughts Despite being trapped where the fear lies   My memories bring neither peace nor comfort
Nothing – Seeing clear as day In the suffocating black of night But cringing with confusion When the sun sheds its light Knowing there’s an answer Not caring if it’s found
Gray, rainy day Though the sun shines outside Ain’t no thing to study. Racketous roar ripping through my silence, Her pale face, rigid as stone Flattening my smile, And my fear-widened eyes,
Mr. Forevergingerman Stares blankly at the page It’s covered in words Words Just rolling and spinning on and off the page Words everywhere Everything is words And nothing is words
I think of you everyday hoping that you are okay. Wondering if you think of me, if you even remember me. Standing here all alone, thinking alone. I think of that smile that made me smile,
For better or for worse, Lovers pass. In sickness and in health, Lovers pass. The seasons seem to change with the people, Not the other way around. We’re all just floating along in this mistaken world,
Year one, day one; This class is not how I expected it College. Where are all the cute guys and alcohol. That's what I saw on TV. Why am I scared, nervous I wasn't like this in  high school.
          On the outside, that’s where I’m at.In another world is where I’m trapped. Look on the inside, such happy people,But I’m on the outside.
I am leaving my roots. / Off to the prison I go. / I am leaving my home. / Off to the vast unknown. / I am leaving the love. / Off to where hate will roam. / I am leaving the hugs. / Off to where I'm alone. / I am leaving myself behind.
NumbEmptyAching to be with you Ripped away from our fateNot given the dateOf when we can be together again Days pass in a blurAs Nights move like a slugNo relief from this pain
I always heard that college would be fun but at the blink of an eye I see my life come undone. It may only be the first semester but here I am alone, intimidated and scared. So if one more professor misunderstands me I'll scream. And all people se
Grab a hand and stand together   let here a heartfelt welcome  hand by hand race by race  together we stand equal   strong and firm We are never alone   so be a friend and lend an ear
Her eyes were blue like the ocean. The salty waves form and roll on shore, her cheek. The continue to flow until they drown her. Her eyes, the sea, a door.
  Images of pictures and colours and swirls Infiltrate my dreams and my heart soars with these images of pain and of lust sometimes in a state of panic and with others I smile
ahead was two paths, 'the path of good and evil' as they say, but my choice was not that simple, to live in misery with a soul and be in pain daily, or to live without a soul and feel no pain,
Sometimes I wonder. Was it a gradual thing? Or did she wake up one day Suddenly suffocated by the ring. When did she realize?
Their magnetic hands grab at mepulling me into the darkInebriated with emotions.. "NO! Won't stop..won't stop.."A spirit inside me is screaming"Can't lose myself-must keepgoing."
Can I be understood I wonder I am so awfully unique The good and bad of it is so plain My voice makes no thunder My view is too terribly bleak My reality too much to blame On something so horribly cheap
Broken promises left in the open The stench of nicotine and dried up roses Clouded vision by the smoke Don't think, don't think, don't speak Cold air filling a dried throat Whispered screams in the sheets
I loathe the four corners of this empty room She fills them with things: things from thrift shops and flea markets. From the molding around the ceiling to a few inches before the floor the walls are covered. 
I'm lost in this world alone. I don't know who I am. Where do i belong? Do I belong in this world? Is my past and present leading to a good future? I really need to find my way! Was I meant to be here?
I feel the cage Just beneath my skin There bending and shifting Just barely containing The raging beast   It grows there
"I'm so lonely. I'm Mr. Lonely. I have nobody..." these words ring true in my ears from that shitty song so popular a lifetime ago. But back then I didn't listen and couldn't empathize. I had a friend and
To  whom will I go when I have found no one?When will I be of need to those who have everything?If every whole is filled, which hole do I fill?Or am I already found? Am I already of need?
There were times when I hungered for what you had.When I begged for you to see me.when it was not my mouth that cried, but my heart.When my spirit bore into yours, and kept a place there,like a hook in your side.  But you, a haughty man.
  When I was running away from my family, I was being forced to not leave my home. My parents were talking to me in a very bad tone. My father was furious, My mom was trying calm him down
They tell you to smile to keep from crying But what if you're tired of trying? Trying to hold it in Trying to fake a win When you know very well that you've lost What if you don't know what to do?
When friends are nigh, Then happiness is felt; But when ignored, The heart then does melt.   How sorrow works To harden a soul! Loneliness turns To bitterness whole.  
Why do I write?Because it is the thing that lets me be creativeWhy does anyone write poetry?It's a song one can sing without knowing the correct notes
It's 1:41 am I am still awake   The room is so lonely  I can only shake   Where are your two strong arms beautiful hands to hold mine   Bring me into the safe, warm
Sitting in an empty room with nothing but me Enclosed by four walls that stare at me With no mercy or sympathy they stare With menacing eyes they stare  
I've never been the girl who was alone. I always had a friend by my side, walking down the halls in school, over summer break in the park, there was always someone who asked me to come.
The bare sand bears only the smell of salt Upon its desolate skin Waiting for that high of Lotionous water To breathe life to this
Lost inside something That doesn’t exist, Huddled in the corner, Hiding my face. Broken to pieces, Glued back together.’ Stolen from my mind, That piece that’s missing
Once upon a time, there was a girl with a broken heart. She had no one to talk to, no one who understood. She turned to pen and paper, writing, writing. The paper listened, never judged, never argued.
Locked in the Prison Cell Created for you I look out and see You smiling. Laughing. I hide in a corner, Threadbare Blanket Over my shoulders, Forgotten by the ones I call friends.
A girl suffered through many hardships, and she bore it all for a while. She had many people that came and then left, she took abandonment with a smile. Her persona changed over time, from heartfelt to harsh fiend.
in crispy cold, the wafer moon flies there's a loneliness that backhands this repeating demise all the stars around me seem as pores to the sky and my pores breathe them in like millions of eyes  
Your eyes keep me awake at night But no one else sees them like I do You keep wondering why no one notices The sadness inside But I do   Don't let the world get you down You're beautiful
In the world of lies, cruelty, & betrayal,it's difficult for some to open their hearts to others.But at the same time, it's hard to let go,when you know, you really have no other.
  Your skin so soft. Your love so hard. I am forever a student of your teachings. and until your last breath I will love you. and forever after.    Words could never do your beauty justice.
My worst enemy is time tick, tock, tick, goes the insane thoughts of mine Repeats of converations and distant elations WHERE IS MY SAFE PLACE? -nowhere You can't hide from it, because it follows you.
I remember   The silent, lonely nights Where I sat, a small child, With nothing but a book as a friend.   My stuffed toys would smile and watch me read
I open my eyes and feel the morning sun graze my skin and I smile. "Its a brand new day", I tell myself. Everything is okay...
Naturally I wear my hair jet blac with no perm,Naturally I speak my mind if I see it fit,Naturally I am artistic,Naturally in nature I am me.
The grass is green and the sky is blue We are young, both me and you We run for days in full delight  How could we know your dreadful plight?  But together forever  Isnt that how it goes? 
I cannot stand it any longer Should I fight and Should I die Would I feel at peace or cry? O' wonderful person before me I can't help but feel as if you tease me
Now I am gone My last curtain has been drawn. Remember when you first showed up? And were looking at my cup?   I remember.   Remember when we went to school,
I know you cant be here I know you dont know how i feel I understand that you cant be here But no matter what,I know you care After all my pain and hate I finally realized it's not too late
Every day is a struggle When you have no one to lean on All of my problems and pain began weigh so heavy, when will it end.   I'm giving my all Day in and day out Crying out to you 
There's never a tomorrow until we choose to fall asleepif we seal the fate with this knife then the death will peakthe blood spills with every second wastedsitting here crying why hath death hasted
  Appearing in the reflection of lights, Mystical and quiet, with sea deep eyes, Her form changing day and night, The creature I see who brings me fright.  
I walk alone in love, For what could love offer me? It gives me not the breath I take, Nor the food I eat, Nor the sleep I rarely receive.   Nay. Love steals breath. Steals ambition.
Not many people have experienced true loneliness It comes with the feeling of hopelessness And makes you feel completely empty inside It will make you want to curl up in a corner
Voices of my friends I hear it. Voices of my own I fear it. I'm living my life on an unbalanced ladder hoping that I will be a somebody. A tongue is sharp and can kill,
What long walk shall I take home to stretch my weary heart?The rut I’ve made grows deeper until I can walk it no more.Broken paths are evidences of broken menand I hang my head, unable to see.
                                                             I know why the caged bird sings To be let free to flap her wings But she knows one day this will be
Sadness drowning me into the depths of the ocean as the sun glistens above me. The white clouds peacefully floating in the air while the Blue Jays dance with them. Now I grasp pain and misery. If I could learn to fly I would never return here.
You can't talk back to me I don't talk back to you But the words you speak to me I listen through and through I can't look into a person's eyes I studder when I speak But the words you speak to me
Oh how my lovely weathered memories are scattered across the floor. How they come rushing through as I sit and ponder. What will the winds of time bring past my door? 
When the sky looks haunted and the night reeks of death Where can one turn? Sleepless nights and restless days of doing nothing But feeding my endless craves   Never satiated  
The outside world is exciting Frightening even The sky and sun seem so inviting Birds chirp happily   When the darkness closes in The stars become luminous It is at these times I return
There is a stranger looking at her in the mirror. She stares back, dark, wet hair. Her face- a mask of nothingness- but her eyes, filled with the deepest, contained sadness. Face, red and stained black with mascara.
The Pain Inside me breaks my soul in piecesMy parents are fighting everydayMy lover left me for deadAnd there's no one who even cares So They Don't really know what they are talking aboutI find different ways to ease the pain that's inside meBut t
What exactly did I do    in a former life For you to beat me black and blue    and cause me so much strife Did I kill or harm or steal    could I have betrayed a friend Now all I see and all I feel
Is it just me or can you not see Just how lonely life can be When you're afraid and they've never stayed And so sanity is becoming frayed
As I lie awake and contemplate All of the things I've come to hate I realize that I've grown tired Of being bogged down and becoming mired In all of the conflict and all of the anger
Victimized yet again. You'd think you'd get used to it by now. You think "Hey, it's happened before; what's different about now?" But every incident has its impact. Every touch; every rub.
A loud voice can do many things. It can free a caterpillar. My words stayed small for so long and no longer will they hunger for excape.  I fought through the jungle of my mind and freed my thoughts from it's captors.
Her beauty doth shine as ‘twould make the sun Itself seem as though ‘twere but a mere coal. A match for her, there is never a one,
They say that love cant exist without hate, but i dont find that to be true The hatred is strong Strong enough to stop the love from entering my heart You said you loved me You said you'll die for me
From out that doorway I detect the smell of home, or rather, that-which-would-be-home, if I had made it my home.
In the shadows You stand and walk, Every day The shadows lessen, But I can’t help the envy For you are not alone, And I am
A cave sits in front of your door, You pass by it every day, not knowing Refusing to know Too busy to know The cave is empty, Air sweeps through No dust to swirl around Just empty,
My first love By: Ladii Kay
People here, people there. People people everywhere. People talking nonstop now, Leaving me out in the crowd. People that are afraid to speak They're like me and feel so weak.
Never get lost in the maze of making others happy, you may lose your own happiness in the process. No need to look, search, or wander, simply glance in the mirror, and look within yourself.
She’s broken. Broken into so many pieces from everything she has ever been through. Her heart cries out for a helping hand, but the tears just continue to flow like a waterfall. She’s terrified.
How is perfection defined, with collarbones? or a gap between my thighs? Perfection is all we see. because images of beauty reflect our insecurities. Perfection is in my reach,
Staring, frozen in the mirror A tired girl looks back at me-- There is strength about her figure But her eyes no longer see. She has talent, drive, and fire, She has been around the world,
I see the Eleanor Rigbys and Gilbert Grapes everywhere I go, The people who forgot long ago to See beauty in people laughing, sunflowers shooting up Out of the ground. There are people who have never heard a canary
as you look upon the water reflections shining bright bringing to your memory thoughts from that dark night
the tears erode my heart as the colorodo carved a canyon my life it fell apart when you died myself my faith abandoned
sometimes when no-one else is around in the dark i start to cry then you can hear the saddest sound of a tear about to die
Anger. Hatred. Jealousy. Tears. Happiness. Joy. Glee. For all the emotions the world throws at me, I write. I write when I sit in a class that's getting too hard.
Sometimes people lose themselves- in themselves. Swimming through blockaded passageways of unchanneled thought and emotion, searching for a discord.
Winter comes. The wind howls and the ravens stick around. Perhaps for one more day, To scrounge around. They search forevermore, or perhaps forever born to be alone.
Why do I write? Someone may ask, See me I write, Cause there's no one that can understand,
I hope you never have to feel Just as lonely as I have And I want you to know We all have those feelings
Often, in unmemorable moments when life is nearly normal, I glimpse your features in the face of a stranger; hear echos of songs we sang together; smell your familiar fragrance
Hard is it for the eyes to perceive true love from fallacy For there are so many waves that make up an entire sea. To what in my heart longs of eternal lust Is silenced by your cold words that turn it to mere dust.
To be, or not to be, That is the true question. Whether it is or was nobler to express yourself, Without having to be judged by others on if you're "normal or not"
To be what I want to be is hard. To be what they want me to be is harder. To follow behind others and never be myself, thats somthing I have done for years. But I refuse to do that anymore.
There was a man. Who lived in a home on top a hill He lived alone He watched the birds come by his house He watched kids playing outside his home He wondered what it was like, to chase after that ball
When darkness has crept over blue heavens And your name has swept like Rumor through my mind, No song, no sight can ease anger's weapons And no hope of this storm's end can I find,
Sadness lurks on the street like an ancient greyhound—forlorn, lonely, With a heavy satchel strapped on his back, slowly limping on the road To nowhere. The rest of the known world has deserted him—left
No one knows you, So you introduce yourself. Hi my name is- And it goes okay. No one knows you yet. But then You slip. The ice creeps in
Being someone’s option is never a good feeling Hoping and praying to be someone’s one and only Just to be told that you were just a choice that wasn’t chosen It doesn’t feel too good
Who's there? Listening to me? No one Who's there? Calling my name? No one Who's there? Waiting for me? No one Who's there? Standing by my side? No one Who's there?
I saw the world for what it truly is when i closed my eyes. She figured out her worth when she closed her thighs He truly saw himself when he left the guys We are all robots in disguise living lies
I sit outside in the night alone. Looking to the sky for the lights that shine. Resting here my mind wonders from place to place. I try to make sense of how I became so impaired.
Loneliness is a silent killer. It lingers in the darkness, Amidst shadows of remorse. Under feelings of joy, Behind eyes of sorrow. Between fingers upon wrist, Spilling through steel and flesh.
Oh Trampoline, those times I spent laying in the center of it at my happiest with a hard back book on my chest
What is this I'm doing? Falling from a building? Left and right building move swiftly around me... Below the hard surface 3....2....1... Close my eyes hope to die... Splat...or so I would have thought...
One single bus A lone driver Empty bus stop Moon shines brightly Footfalls clicking Worn-out lady Eyelids drooping Yawn coming on Bag drags along
He was lonely, sad, and depressed Yet still looked lovely Everything he did was accomplished so gracefully He was an outsider that everyone noticed Many thought he was weird
No one knows how I feel No one knows what I want They laugh and laugh As if they don't care
Standing absolutely still, big, and tall in their dull surroundings they wait patiently for their next victim
I met a man and his name was Mr. Lonely How did I know? Because he told me He kept asking me to make it stop I asked him what he meant, but he said he couldn't tell me
These hands delve into the ground to remake what I once found When I was better and my conscience was light as a feather I made this as empty as I feel, but now I'm not alone I am a weight eroding those
Squalls send seagulls flapping away, billowing Nimbus bides his war ‘til darkness. Throaty caws from the sinews of a power line mark the claps of his raucous call. Phoenix flies from the depths
When the world around you closes in, go find the Whipperen. When everything seems difficult, search for the one you must consult. When life is hard and course as gravel, go down the road through which few travel.
On the other side of sometimes, I wait with baited breath On the other side of sometimes, I keep away from death
The universe is expanding, everything moves away from Earth at an increasing rate. Earth is becoming more isolated, lonelier. There are 7 billion people on Earth, 361 million on the web. We are more connected than ever.
He said they’d last forever And yet he decides to leave her The pain, it began to devour Her soul leaving her weaker
This is my town. Our town where she ran me ragged. She was always running. Running around in circles in two bit town. Never getting anywhere. Because the end felt a lot like the beginning.
Drip Drop Will it ever stop? The hurt The pain Blood dried on my shirt And still nothing to gain Why does the pain still persist? My happiness is so greatly missed. Inside I am screaming
I'm the shadow in a rainbow I'm the anger in a smile I'm a raincloud on a sunny day The tenth number in a dial
Some tears say I’m sorry Some beg please look at me. Some tears ask just hold me. Some tears say leave me please. Some tears say help me… when I feel alone.
My love is not dying but getting stronger. Waiting for you takes longer and longer No matter how many days go by, I think of you while looking at the open sky.
The persistent cold beneath blankets and quilts that chills to the bone despite layers of clothes— The cup of coffee forgotten, left to cool on the counter.
That lonely black house on top of that hill Away from the white houses… It separates from the world… That white room inside that black house All the way deep end of the hall…
Above the raindrops of the shower head my thought scream loudly and my heart wails in silence. Shock and sadness hit me stronger than a title wave with the awareness: I have always felt alone.
She wakes up alone-- Except for a cat by her side. And she is happy She eats breakfast alone-- Except for a cat by her side. And she is happy.
She sits there cutting herself A red river pouring out She can’t stop now All she's ever known is the cold hard pain of being alone With no one to turn to, nowhere to go, the pain starts to- get to her
I don't want to be your friend.
I'm driving on a lonely road When the time is no closer to sunrise than the last sunset. My headlights are overshadowed by the darkness surrounding it, And I'm tired-- Tired of feeling no feelings,
I am left staring at your ghost of a smile, Until your lips find mine And take me away To another thought, To no thought. Only a hunger for more Of you, of me, For both of us together.
Innocence wilts, tulips in a graveyard. No hope left to flutter slowly by. Rays of sun can no longer bring her back to life.
Why lie when I can see it through your eyes? You just make it worse, But what can you say, that's just life's course. What your going through, isn't so good, relying on sorrow isn't so well.
The storm in the distance begins to stir, And here I stand with the ice beneath my feet. The gusting wind is cold, harsh, and bitter, The snowdrifts are building around the lake,
"Maybe today will be different," I think "Maybe things will change," I hope "Maybe something good will happen," I pray "Maybe today is the day it will all turn around." Convincing is hard to do
I thought of you - again - today. Your song and music to which I would sway Playing softly from this machine of mine. I wonder if you will ever grow some spine.
I felt myself drifting flying soaring All eyes on me, my mask adhered, my smile plastered, on plastic face. What’s this feeling?
The wistful wind blows It reminds me of peace Never ending ongoing tranquility Things that are hard to achieve In this society which never sleeps
Insomniatic me. Sitting alone, watching tv. Man, I just want some sleep My pillow is calling to me. Hiding from certainty. Making my own reality. As sleep eludes me. Mania grips vibrantly.
You are hundred miles away In a place you don’t want to stay. You left your hometown to make your parents proud And now you just feel lost, like you can’t be found.
Talk to me. Let me explode to you. Absorb my radiation.
When we met you said you were dangerous, A word like licking knife blades, razor sharp; Dancing in silk slippers on an icy-slick roof-edge. You said it to sound dark and brooding, A walk on the wrong side of the tracks.
I am the moon When the light fades And the world turns a blind eye, I become alive. I show myself to only the darkness, Ane become The soul of the night. The stars puncture the darkness
It'd be difficult to see the emptiness within an exterior of sunshine. A never ending battle between the person I am and the person they want me to be. The loneliness I feel even in the most crowded places.
On a couple of occasions I’ll imagine him as a proud Greek hero, Only a mere eighteen years of age, Who has been sent down from the thunderous white clouds of the heavens To fight the nasty creatures that lurk the earth
Stay here as you walk through life; I will hold your hand when you are far. Here, I am there with you in the dark. Fear not the happiness of yesteryear; They will return to you in the distant.
Freedom is bondage when spent alone Being held captive in the cold In my cold heart Loneliness is the chain that holds me I have no idea why I feel so lonely But I just sit here with a smile
She's whispering to herself, words over and over again. It's okay, I'm okay, I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry. In her head she's going absolutely crazy, her world is spinning away quickly as her thoughts eat her away.
Why must I feel so lonely sometimes? Must I? No one to really talk to, but only God Stuck thinking that some things are better left off, Not said
It burns in the back of my mind, day and night the burning goes, bursting to be untethered, lust, fear, sorrow and pride, its all here, in the back of my mind, but if I were to unleash these inner demons,
