Though this be madness there is method to it.
Like birds of a feather we flock together.


Why do I feel so alone

Surrounded by people and friends?

I have this feeling all my own

That makes me feel like I can’t win.



Words fail to express this empty depression

As I fail to understand my involuntary regression.

Is loneliness a disease or a temporary state?

Is this a punishment or a vision of my fate?

I want to scream. I want to cry.

But it seems all my emotions die.

This loneliness consumes me whole

Like a fire that is out of control.

It sucks the oxygen out of my lung

There is no escape not even if I run

My head starts to spin and my eyes lose focus.

I can’t slow it down and I’m feeling hopeless.

I know that its plan is to take my soul

And my life is what shall pay the toll.



Why do I feel so alone

Surrounded by people and friends?

This loneliness is all my own

And I know what it intends.
