when im lonely


When I’m lonely
I’m NEVER ALONE
I’m surrounded by people
That is not my own

When I’m lonely
I’m ENCLOSED IN HATE
The madness in my mind
Over takes

When I’m lonely
I have people around me
MAKING ME FELL
Like I’m just a boundary

For ever in the shadows
Of all the smiling faces
Of this world

I sit at home
Screaming at the world
For casting me in its veil

When I’m lonely I shout out in SPITE
Why do I have to be lonely
Is there no one that’s my own

When I’m lonely
I imagine a valley
No life in sight
Just me being lonely

When I’m lonely
I close my eyes
I hope to wake up
To a surprise

I hope to find
Some one whose
Not lonely to guide me

I go insane
Being alone for so long
It affects your thoughts


When I’m lonely
I can not think
My thoughts are gone
It’s like my mind is not in sync

When I’m lonely
I Put on a smile
Fooling the world

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
