I'm not alone yet feel I am,
An emptiness in my soul,
No one seems to really understand,
The lonliness takes a toll.

I wonder am I right in the head,
Maybe I expect too much,
Maybe I should contol my emotions more,
Maybe I'm just out of touch.


I feel shut off somehow,
Like no one REALLY cares,
That my friends and family are just pretending,
Just dutifully cleaning the old wares.

Perhaps my soul is dying,
Torn asunder by misery,
The feelings of aloneness,
Try to consume me.

Perhaps I'm alone in feeling this way,
Perhaps I'm in love with misery,
But when the feelings are all clamouring to be heard,
How else am I supposed to be?

Maybe I should see someone?
But what could they do for me?
A stranger telling me he understands,
Is not how it's meant to be.

So I'll go on hoping,
That this old soul of mine will quieten,
That it'll learn to laugh again,
And stop the shroud from tightening.

I'll try to see the beauty in the day,
The love that is here to be found,
Laugh with my little family,
Not let my soul unbound..

You are never alone here, or haven't you figured that out yet? We all love you!!!

If you just need someone to turn to, never hesitate!

Sometimes love hides behind cruel words,seeming indifference,anger-but deep down-where it really counts-its still there.It's still there within you too-maybe hiding behind your thoughts.Hold on,you will find it.It's closer than you think...Our thoughts can cloud the sun inside us.

I don't believe you're alone in these feelings! I know I've been there. Like Lucie says, You are never alone here!
Sometimes it is difficult to see the happy things, but the more we look for them, the easier they get to see.
