A poem on the feelings of depression and being abandoned

Am I The Only One? (Not Alone)

Am I the only one who hates his own skin

Am I the only one who was born into sin

Am I the only one who dreams nightmares

Am I the only one who rid themselfs of cares

Am I the only one who lost their childhood

Am I the only one who is the opposite of understood

Am I the only one who cuts themselves at night

Am I the only one who isnt even close to alright

Am I the only one who is fascinated by death

Am I the only one who waits till the day of his last breath


There are many of us in the depths of despair

There are many of us whos issues we share

There are many of us losing ourselves

There are many of us with our hearts on the shelves


We would ask for help but we are to noble

Living our lives very woeful

Sitting alone as we cry all day

We would ask for help but what would we say


So we will walk through life sad and sheltered

Left with our emotions hot and sweltered

Bottled inside and thrown to the ground

Walking through life lost and unfound


So this is a poem for those without that hand to hold

A poem for those whose souls are sold

A poem for anyone who is neglected

A poem for anyone unaccepted


I couldnt imagine what your going through

But trust me Ive got my own issues too

We all have our shitty days,weeks,months, maybe even years

And we all have our own paralyzing fears

So trust me when I say your not alone

Millions of others with souls of stone

So let me be be the first to apologize

For your history of depression and despise


So when you ask "Am I the only one?"

Think of all of us in the long run

That made me cry. Thanks :) I love it and I will think of that. Even if I do every day, I will. It does help. Your poem is awesome and I like your perspective on the situation and the words you've chosen. It's a good point that a lot of people need to understand as much as they can because there is so much suicide and depression.. trust me I should know. Losing loved ones is one of my biggest weaknesses/fears and its weird how I haven't defeated my demons yet. Thanks for posting It's awesome. And I hope you continue writing.

Wow. This was so dark, so tainted by life- but then it showed that we aren't alone. That everyone is feeling mutual pain.
Loved it.

That poem is so heart wrenchingly beautiful. It showcases depression with a glimmer of hope. I don't think there's anyone who can read this poem and not be moved. It's real and I like that :)

swords edge

beautiful but dark, but dark is a good thing because to many people ignore it even though thats were the most potent emotions lie. i've known for along time that i'm not alone with pain. my childhood was ruined by rape and parents fighting but now i worked it all out because i found that small light that some many of us are so unluck as to see. my best friends are emo but they do it because their boyfriends broke up with them, i almost was because i have demons hunting me even when i'm not asleep. could you check out my poem My Death Is Not An Option? i hope we can become friends, i hope i don't sound sappy or like some goody 2 shoes out there but i really do want to be your friend and maybe help you find that small light so far away from the darkness your still smothered in. thank you for spaming me, i enjoy your work much more then bubbly perfects.

My Overactive Imagination

I don't to know how to feel about this one. Of course, it's epic. But... it's either comforting because the words explain you are never truly alone or abandoned in the way you feel or the way you are... though maybe slightly... maybe very dark... in the way that everybody has pain no matter what. But then, that was my interpretation. Of course... loved it :]

Fri, August 19th, 2011 6:29pm


Thank you...and a lot of people interpret it in many different ways

This is amazing! you have a true gift, it's dark but it's just so perfect in wording and it makes everyone know that there not alone in this cruel world we live in! Keep up the great work

Your amazing at poetry and i especially love this one of yours! I read your biography and i think just the fact that you had a hard life has givin you great things to write about, i love dark misic

Fri, October 14th, 2011 11:31pm


I can´t really relate because I myself have a wonderful life in comparison which I am very grateful for, still this poem makes me sad because it shows a completely disturbing picture of the world. Its very inflicting and thats why its great. Nicely done!
