Friendless Battle

My feelings are in express
Of the unfathomed inside myself
I find that I am in pain
Of a friendless battle alone
Lost I seem to wander
Going from one spot to another
But I am not emotionless
I just am in painful spouts
Feeling alone can hurt more
Than anything else, a wound
That carries much more salt
Than it does a cool gentleness
Hot stabbing pain enters me
From all corners of my heart
For alone I am in this life
And no one to care about me
But even more than that
No one that I can care about
This emptiness grown more
Each day it rips me apart
Till I feel the gapingness of it
And nothingness abounds inside
This hollow soul rests scathed
And bothered by the endless
Rattles of this unfriendly Earth
Battling the demons of my past
As well at the loss of future hope
That I may find somewhere a friend…

I hope this is based in fiction. Although I know the pain you speak of it is not yours, I hope. Your understanding of the pain is so real I find it hard to tell . Take care my friend.
