Being Lonely Feeling Lonely

Sometimes the loneliest times 
are when I am not alone,
and a stream of conversation invades my ears.

Sometimes the loneliest times
are when I'm with you
and you see my empty gaze stare into you.

Sometimes I want to be lost in the world
Sometimes I choose to disappear.

Sometimes the loneliest times
are when I am alone
and my thoughts force me into darkness.

Sometimes I wish that you could be me,
Sometimes I want you to see what I see.

Sometimes the loneliest times
are when my brain stops
and thought becomes the hardest thing

in the world.

Feeling The Same

Whatever has passed me by, it's winged shadow 
Cast a chill that lingers in my eyes 
And strangely feels like losing, dying or missing 
Something never chanced to materialise. 
Gone in a blink and whirlwind embargo, 
Candle extinguished at pinpoint of gutter; 
Soft wax dripped petroleum blue at my feet, 
Stuck to the floor with a cold tango stutter. 
I placate my ruffled feathers with thoughts 
And platitudes fired in a blind ricochet 
That echoes a mockingly reasoned rebound: 
"Ah, well, there will be another day." 
Now I have a chasm to train and to feed, 
My companion regret calls your faraway name; 
And it sounds like a gunshot wrapped up in a wish 
As I wish I had known you were feeling the same.

The Sick Feeling

Shards of glass

My stomach.

The Feeling Love Does Leave

               The Feeling Love Does Leave
The feeling love does leave, when love has gone;
   an empty mind, that wanders here and there;
in search of reason to keep going on,
   but finding not a reason anywhere.

The feeling love does leave, when love has died;
   a vacant heart, that always seems to feel
the emptiness that love has left inside,
   and beating on, as if it isn't real.

The feeling love does leave, when love's no more;
   a troubled mind, that journeys on alone,
an empty life, that doubts what love is for;
   a battered heart that's turned as hard as stone.

      The feeling love does leave, is wonder why;
      The feeling love does leave, is but to die.

Feeling Down

I'm feeling down, &&' I'm already on the ground. I cant get any lower, my patience is getting slower. I've already hit the floor, &&' I'm becoming sore. I'm not sure where I went wrong, but now I dont belong. I'm like the unknown, all alone. This feeling is unbarable, the pain is unbelievable. I'm ready to walk out the door, I can't take no more. This is why I don't trust, I always get pushed in the dust. Now I got to cover my eyes, &&' ignore all your lies. I've been left in the rain, I've felt the pain. I knew things were wrong, but I stayed along. Now I'm here all alone, waiting for the sound of my phone. I wouldn't wish for my worst enemy to feel this way, that's what I have to say. I didn't really have a choice, now I'm missing the sound of your voice. I made mistakes that wont fade, not even with a blade. My heart isn't bullet proof, &&' that's the truth.

Feeling My Pain

I’m feelen the pain 
and I’m hurten again
I’m somebody’s fool -here sitten on this bar stool
Tied to your chain

Bleeden like a hog
Getten drunk as a dog
I’m liven in a dream world- made up make believe world
Feeling my pain

Feeling my pain
Of loven you  again
Where I’m gona go now
How my gona stand now
while lying in  the pouren rain

Loves gone away
Pains come back to stay
I’m feelen the strain now
Hurten again now 
Feelen my pain

You’d said you’d be true
Not to make me a fool
But you slipped up again now- lied to me again now
Cause you’re the girl of my dreams

I can’t get away
You’re in my heart to stay
I’m liven in a dream world  - made up make believe world
Feeling my pain

feeling incomplete while lost in thought

when i met you,
the art on the 
walls of you were 
bright and expressive
with statements and 

after a while, age and 
change somehow soured
the sweetness that held
in the savoring

i became uncomfortable even
in my own discomfort around 

as a result so painstakingly
unfortunate, i had to make 
harsh choice to pack my life
up in the trunk of my car and
choose my own brand of change

now it is many moons and suns 
later and the thought of you popped
up like popcorn

i guess it was the lady in the discount
store whose buttercream skin and 
particular walk reminded me of other
lifetimes and you

something told me to scream out your 
name as our song started playing out of nowhere

yet something else held me back, and for the rest
of the day i feel incomplete while lost in thought

I Had This Feeling

I had this feeling
that nobody else could feel
and then I ask my girl
if what I was feeling was real.

She broke my heart
and then she tore it all apart.
So if my love wasn't made for you
then why'd you break it in two??

I had this feeling 
that I would die alone
and if it was ought to happen
it would happen at my home.

It would happen very slow
my heart would cry for you
then die for you
no one could ever love you
exactly how i do.

If you can feel my pain
then you should know its getting hard to explain
and my heart doesnt play no games
so im going insane.

I had this feeling.
I had this feeling
in my heart 
telling me to walk away
to a better a day.

I had this feeling 
that love would come my way
but it wouldn't be today.

I gave her my heart and she forced it away
on Valentines Day

I only had this feeling
because she left me with a pain
in my heart.

Im just sorry it had to be that way
over the past 60 days.

That empty soul feeling of longing
when you know you have to part
ways with one held in your heart
ever and always so dear

That anticipative feeling of anxiety
when you don't know as to whether
the one you hold so dear to your heart
is ever coming back again

That feeling of wronging and hurt
when the one you love so dearly
repulses your advances carelessly
that feeling is born of love

You know that feeling

When it is a dark time in your life
and every song on FM radio reminds you of her
and you try to smile, but only frowns come to shine
and you try to dance,
but you fall to your knees and can't breathe,
and when you look at her from a distance
and she is smiling and holding hands with another man,
you feel like dying!
You know that feeling?
It hurts you,
and that lump in your throat that wants to scream,
but if you do all hell breaks loose.
The noose looks good today,
or the bridge with the one hundred foot drop to pure concrete,
it hurts!
Life goes on, you must know that for sure,
but when everything around you hurts
and all the smiles seem to you as mockery,
it is hard to live everyday knowing that what you once had,
can never come again,

That feeling it tears me apart,
limb from limb,
like a dying tree I lose all my leaves
and I cannot bear to see myself fall, yelling TIMBER!!!!
I can't handle that,
my heart is glass and glass is fragile
and I can't take that, for another stone to be thrown through my glass heart.

Bereaved Feeling

Theres a gaping hole 
A part of me is  missing 
Blood is gushing out of my chest
For all these years I've known you
I took you for granted
Never showing you how much you
Truly meant to me but now its too late

Then I began to recap
All of those times we spent together
Reminiscing on all the lessons 
you taught me,
Your doctrines resonate inside me 
As my memories epitomized my sorrow 
Yet I knew everything was gonna be okay 

Even now 
I'm in a bewildered state thinking
How could you be dead 
How could it end this way
My soul is in complete dismay 
But now I know its best this way
and its just the end of your role 
in my life's great play
I will never shed a tear
you've brought nothing but joy 
to my life

feeling my heart beat in my stomach

eating humble pie
adding mud and parasites
sprinkling lots of drizzle and grey cloud matter
including many pinches of regret
indulging on the unfortunate bitterness of my modern reality
wasting napkins and paper towels unnecessarily 
wishing for the refreshing flavors of you
knowing that losing you is poison to the life of my soul
letting the monsters win the battle

a feeling forlorn

The screen emanates the feeling
Pain seeping from the light
Greeting all with fake yet warm smiles
Bleeding through the air. Thick and relentless
Pouring past a sea, crimson red.
Breath taking and awe inspiring.
It’s all there is in the candle light.
A resourceful malice, taking all advantages.
If you look carefully you can see the tears.
Dripping there in the page, running down
Vertical lines take hold and resuscitate
Papers all in order. Can’t taste the sugar.
Can’t taste the sweet, all that’s left is bitter
Remnants of an old man lost in a shell
Remnants of an shell emptied, nothing left inside.
Dust in the wind, an obscene gesture
Cuts in the page, turn back while there’s still time.

a feeling so secure

Winter… The memories flood back with this season each year.
You were so warm in my desolate cold world.
My crushed spirit was mended with your touch.
Two lost kids, looking for an answer.
We had thought we found it within each other.
A simple glance said it all.
No thinking about tomorrow, all we need is today.
Adolescent longing for what we could not have.
All of it kept at bay with the promise or our love.
All of it swept away with one swift move of dishonesty.

the sorrowful feeling of rejection....(maybe not sure on my titles)

the sorrowful feeling of rejection
slumbering in the heart like a deep infection

i wish i could make it go away

but i beleive its here to stay

i wish i could make it dissapear

but its always just right here

i wish i could remember how to love

but after all have i ever really loved?

My Personal Feeling

Sorrow walks and talks in shadow
This dark feeling grows nearer
Never leaving my side this feeling
Makes me cry under pressure
It haunts and watches me
Feeling woozy and never certain
The emptiness that is lost inside me soul
Will I ever be able to fill this hole
You would never understand the strong grip on me
I hate it when I like it
I kill it as I revive it
Help me
For I am going down
Down a road no man should follow...

Death of a Feeling

I gave my all and very best,
I did it all for you.

I knew before I got attached,
I should have thought things through.

When you told me how I was the best,
That should have been a clue.

There was no spark,
Not a chance,
Nothing that was true.

That Feeling

You know that feeling...
That feeling you get When you 
fall for someone you can't
Maybe because
they're already
Or there are others
standing in your way
Or just a voice or
force that keeps you
That feeling of
never being complete
You'll never be
happy til you have
Just friends?
To strong a feeling
To deep these
Tell them how you
feel and ruin what
you have
Or finally be whole
But you just can't
tell them about this
feeling that you
Maybe fate doesn't
want you to be
Maybe your destiny
is with someone else
It's better to have
loved and lost,
Than never to have
loved at all
Or so you think
That fear
That feeling...

Lost in a feeling

Lost in a feeling,
Thinking of my friends.
Thoughts reeling,
When will this end?

Friends in war,
Endless conflict.
What is it for?
It just kills and raises debt.

For control of oil,
To stop mad men.
So much turmoil,
Why did this begin?

I wish they could come home,
My brothers and sisters in arms.
I know they feel alone,
I wish them well and free of harm.

feeling mind and body

wish you could've met him too
been someone to hear me cuz
my learning him, my yearning
was good and real and true 

maybe he was too perfect for me
so many feelings ago

he happened to me
he drew me in charcoal pencil
in my shades of black, gray 
and even between that

he taught me how to drive with my hands
to drive wihout needing my feet
he taught how to love with my mind
and music, art, words, imagination

that chair got between us too fast
I didn't care, but he did 
and I was too young to know
to know how to convince him

losing him
was as bad
as losing
how to walk

because it happened to him 
not me
and he couldn't feel anymore
anyone below his arms

he left me

and because he happened to me
not him
and I couldn't feel anymore
anyone above my arms

was that as bad 
as the loss of his legs?

That Fleeting Feeling

so much is held within silence, that has yet to be appreciated
while everything that is nothingess, yearns to be satiated
and elated with understandings that are demanding
too much

I've been searching this whole time for what was already there
as the the crimson and hazel eyed me down with a stare
to remind me just how kindly that life remains unfair

unfair in words that could never be expressed
forever leaving my heart with not but a guess,
a request that keeps me utterly hanging, still
un-changing between two crooked dimensions
simply, only longing for the attention

spent my words trying hard to be cheap
while sanity seemed to take the back seat
I could only try to keep calm for so long before
I tasted the meaning of this beautiful song

sing to me the meaning of what it means to smile

perhaps just to lay in the sun for a while,
in comfortable silence that's just understood,
i get it, you get it- its all good

but maybe im just dreaming and it wasn't okay
for the clouds seemed to cover the sun on that day

should've just stayed and spared my last change, then maybe
my words would be slightly arranged.
but this deranged state of mind can find reason for being,
it's just another feeling that to experience is fleeting.

in the end I remembered I had a voice, 
with the realization that happiness is always a choice.

a liquid feeling

Why does this heart feel so bad?
Remembrance of an uninteresting event.
An escape into the night.
Feeling sadness multiplied.
Boiled down and concentrated. 
Why does this heart feel so bad?

Feeling The Emotions

I feel like a part of me is missing when I'm not around you
I just want you to hold me and make me feel like you use too.

Am I asking for too much? When I'm yearning for your touch
After all this time I'm beginning to miss it so much.

I'm starting to think that this thing we have just wasn't meant to be
Each day we are drifting away from one another and you will end up losing me.

I pour out my heart to you but you ignore every single word I say
I threaten to walk out and you reply with an okay.

Your definition of a relationship is opposite of mine because if it was the same 
I would not be the one to blame and things will remain the same. 

I'm lost, confused, with no direction or patience in trying to work things out
Everytime I think I want to here comes................DOUBT!!!

The Greatest Feeling Ever Known

Your a Beauty in abstract

painted in all the shades of a rainbow

no more would you feel the pain

if only you would know my name

as something new to you

that you could never see

yeah you probably wouldn't like it


I would do anything for you

if only you want me too

you need me to

I'd die for you

without a second thought


I know you don't know it

but your just like me

that's why you don't love me

so now that its over

now that you hate me

no, I can't blame you

that why your my gal

cause I could never

love myself

not in the way that I love you

you made me discover

that I knew how to

Gut Feeling

The first coupledays 
everything was great
I was falling in love
at least thats what i think

but as the days went on 
i could no longer hide
the hurt that i feel 
the pain that lies inside

Somethings not right
it should feel this way
i know i need to tell you 
but i don't know what to say

I really do love you
I know that for sure
But something is different
it's not like before

we arn't the same kids
who met those year ago
we've both grown up since the
And I think it really shows

i don't mean to cause you pain
i don't know what to do
my heart doesn't feel right
and i don'twant to hurt you

i hope you can forgive me
for all that i've done wrong
but something in me's saying
that we just don't belong
