Shhy Poet


Sometimes you feel very lonely, even though you're not alone
Sometimes mere words pierce your heart deeper than daggers
Sometimes you cry without even knowing why
Sometimes you wish you could just curl up and die.

Sometimes it's your loved ones that hurt you the most
Sometimes you find the hostility of dear ones more terrible than the taunts of your enemies
Sometimes your friends can be your worst foes
Sometimes you realize that all you have is yourself.

Sometimes people accuse you of things you've never done
Sometimes you just can't defend yourself against these lies however much you try
Sometimes you doubt your own integrity even if you've done nothing wrong
Sometimes you feel like giving up, and never trying again.

Sometimes you don't feel like waking up to face a horrible reality
Sometimes even your sleep is broken and haunting
Sometimes you feel the sun burning you, and the rain drenching you
Sometimes you feel more dead than alive.

Sometimes you try to swim but end up drowning
Sometimes you scream but no sound comes out
Sometimes you try to breathe but end up suffocating
Sometimes you feel crushed and powerless.

Sometimes the soothing power if nature doesn't work on you
Sometimes your favourite songs don't give you a high
Sometimes you ignore the wind trying to play with you
Sometimes everything that offered you comfort, no longer holds any meaning.

Sometimes you look around but find not a soul
Sometimes you call out but don't get a reply
Sometimes your smile is greeted with cold stares'
Sometimes you find being with yourself is better than being with anyone else.

Sometimes you realize that happiness is just an illusion
Sometimes you find that people you thought would be there aren't here
Sometimes you know that blood relationships just don't exist
Sometimes you search for love, but can't find it anywhere.

Sometimes eyes that were once filled with love look icy cold
Sometimes voices that comforted curse you
Sometimes people who laughed with you laugh at you
Sometimes people who loved you just don't, anymore.

Sometimes you try to lift your head but just can't
Sometimes you try to walk but end up falling
Sometimes you try to wake up but can't open your eyes
Sometimes the world around you just doesn't stop spinning.

Sometimes you find silence more musical than voices
Sometimes you find darkness more comfortable than daylight
Sometimes you find the cold warmer than the bright sun

Sometimes hands that once held yours feel cold
Sometimes arms that were wrapped around you strangle you
Sometimes lips that showered you with kisses twist with wrath
Sometimes the healing power of a touch just ends up destructing.

Sometimes you feel very lonely, even though you're not alone
Sometimes mere words pierce your heart deeper than daggers
Sometimes you cry without even knowing why
Sometimes you wish you could just curl up and die.
