This is a piece I wrote a long time ago now, I think maybe its been seven or eight years! I had completely forgotten that I wrote this, but came across it in a journal the other day whilst sorting through some things.
Basically here, I tried to describe the feeling of loneliness. It's quite a random piece really, but I thought that I would share it anyway, incase anyone does enjoy reading it.

Loneliness is a dark, cold, painful nothing. It would be true to say that we have all been through it, and have had more then our fair share. To have felt so hurt and desperate for answers in time to keep us sane before being on the verge of breaking point, where your heart is crying so much that you are sure that it will shatter into a million pieces. Left alone with tears burning down your cheeks wondering why these things are happening to you, and wondering how to resolve the situation. Thinking that all that you need is that special someone to be holding you tightly in their arms telling you that everything is going to be alright.

Unfortunately, this kind of hurt cannot be healed overnight. It can take years of crying yourself to sleep at night, trying, but never being able to make sense of it all, getting to the point of no return, the point that could ultimately lead to self destruction.......

Have you ever been surrounded by those who do not understand your fragile state of mind? It seems as though you are standing in the middle of the room, screaming at the top of your voice but nobody ever hears you, making you feel as though you are a candle that has burnt out it’s last flame, and no longer gives off a warm light to be absorbed into their mindless atmosphere.

But you know that you somehow have to find a way to keep on shining inside, like a beautiful star in the sky that shoots off in it’s own direction across the never-ending universe on a course to forever, towards the destiny that it is really meant to find, whatever that may turn out to be......
