Ticking of the clock.
Incessant noise that hits the eardrum.
The room spins.
Will it ever stop?
Darkness, thick as mud
Oozing slowly, steadily.
It engulfs everything.
Falling into its black pit.
Every second of the plummet, an hour.
Suffocation creeps in.
Pinching.
Squeezing
Smothering.
No breath welcome here.
In this black hole.
This empty space.
This void.
Watch the silent fire,
Watch me scorch my battered heart,
Ashes cannot burn.
I looked into her sparkling eyes.
All I could do was whisper,
“Sometimes, silence is the loudest noise...”

Collecting the paper ticket,
                   I was there alone
                                at the bar.

A place of singles and I had a
                      receipt,
                      to show how
                      lonely I really was.

It said entry for one...

                   Exit for few,
who walk with more than they walked
                                                 in with...

But I only ever went home,
with a
          receipt of regret.
      
I made It in to a paper aeroplane,
           making my loneliness less obvious.
          floating in the wind, dancing on its own.

Fears were near
While you were so far away

I had to stand the tears
I could never tolerate
...

Candles within your eyes,
illumine my shadow.

Lonely in the dim I was,
there’s now a glow to follow.
A micro poem about a past love of mine pulling me out of loneliness.

So, this is what I get.
I think sitting all alone.
All those times I took advantage, I should have known.
Now every sound echos off the walls, in these empty halls.
In now a house, that used to be a home.
Once filled with family, now is only occupied by me... alone.

Nobody likes you when you're
down and out.
They'd rather see you smile.
Nobody talks to me when I'm
feelin' blue,
but baby, happy's goin' out of style.

I see the sun is grinnin'
in my face.
People just pass me by.
Nobody there to give
the time of day.
So tell me, why do I even try?

The phone is ringin', but it
ain't for me.
My doorbell must be broke.
Am I this lonely when
it comes down to it,
or is this just one big joke?

Nobody likes you when you're
down and out.
They'd rather see you smile.
Nobody talks to me when I'm
feelin' blue,
but baby, happy's goin' out of style.

I shut the windows and turn
off the light,
crawl into my bed.
I guess that I could call this
girl I know,
but she'd prob'ly rather sleep instead.

And in the mornin' pour
myself a cup.
Talkin' to the wall.
I think I'll curl up
beside my cat, read a book and
have myself a ball, 'cause

Nobody likes you when you're
down and out.
They'd rather see you smile.
Nobody talks to me when I'm
feelin' blue,
but baby, happy's goin' out of style.

Said, Nobody likes you when you're
down and out.
They'd rather see you smile.
Nobody talks to me when I'm
feelin' blue,
but baby, happy's goin' out of style.
I wanna express, what is on my mind,
But all i can do is smile and say nevermind..

A home was all i yearned to find,
But yet again i was left in a bind...

They say i spark with a different shine,
What is it of use when you turn away blind...

I guess my fate is already aligned,
So should I leave my thoughts confined?

I expect too much from this mankind,
When all they know is how to leave behind...

In the end there will be nothing left to find
Except a body, on a rope unkind...
"This house no longer,
Feels like home"
