There is this feeling

Of absolute loneliness

Where you feel utterly alone


Even in the midst of people

There is this empty void

Like you are drowning in the void

Everybody else is invisible

Like you are there alone

No other presence is felt

Your heart feels heavy

The chest feels tight

Suddenly, everything is a burden

Everything is annoying

Everything feels against you

Only the negative energy can be felt

This can bring out the monster in you

If care is not taken

It causes this longing

A craving

A pang for something

Something more

It feels compelling

You start to feel incomplete

Like there is a piece missing

An important piece of the puzzle

This feeling can be Gruesome

You start feeling Trapped

Like you are in a void


You start to wonder if you are bipolar

Or depressed

With the way you feel.

  1. There is nothing more poignant, no feeling more desolate than when you’re all alone in the midst of so much company. That is even more alone than he who has no one.

  2. Then you begin to cry
    You can’t explain why
    The pain, your heart alone understands
    I’d go with bipolar. …

  3. At times like this
    Only one thing comes to mind
    Take a knife
    And kill your supervisor

    One of the worst feelings one could ever have
    With the hot tears freely gushing
    Then thoughts
    And questions…not a good one lols

  5. My feelings (this month) put poignantly into words.
    Hopefully it gets better after days of tears and tears and more tears.
    It helps to pray and ask for peace and joy.
    One day the realization will come
    that even if everyone and everything is against you,
    God is on your side. Always.
