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..
Words that enlighten the soul are more precious than jewels.
