Ghazala Lari on Standing at the cross roads between life and death (1 hour ago)
Saturday 1st September 2018 1:31 am
Harry died in his bed, sad
But nobody knew.
Someone knocked on his door
After a week or two.
When there wasn’t an answer
Someone went away,
Just thought he was deaf
Or, gone out for the day.
Then a week or two later
The mail’s in the hall
But the postman’s too busy
To give him a call,
And the milkman stopped coming
A long time ago;
When there isn’t a sign...

I used to be happy
I used to smile
But I am broken
It's been this way for awhile
I used to dream big
I used to be strong
Life got in the way
And it didn't take long
Lying in bed
My heart is racing
My mind won't shut off
These thoughts that I'm facing
Maybe they're better off
Without the burden of me
I feel so lost and alone
I can sense th...

Why you do me so wrong
Why you shit on me all day long
U do me dirty like a damn tampon
Haven’t heard from you all day long
Look at the shit u be on
U do me like a damn peon
What type of love is this
Why you gotta put me thru this

What if I fail
What if everything that I hope to accomplish
What if I really be on mtv
Would that change a “U don’t mean shit to me”
To you mean the most to me
Let me stop
Let me pause
I never did good
So I never got a round of applause
Always found myself behind bars
For not following the laws
It seems crazy I always wanted...

I wandered lonely in a crowd
Brushing up against shoulders
Colliding with legs
but feeling distant and alone
hearing no words of apology
only mutterings of annoyance.
I wondered lonely in a crowd
do we notice each other
or are too caught up in ourselves?
Minds a tangled mess of thoughts
A maze leading to who knows where
Losing our way again and again.

On a summer night the window mutters a melancholy tone,
Soft fabric sinks down towards the ground,
The rain flutters the pedals of a delicate daffodil on the edge of the window sill.
I sit and wait,
Longing to the reflection of the moon on a puddle,
You wrap your arms around mine.
We dance in a meadow,
Your shoes sink into the loosened soil from years of rain before....

He made our argument physical again tonight
Every time I think it's the last
Leaving him isn't an option
Plus, where would I go?
My heart can't take the cruel words or pain
Eventually, I'll learn how to cope.

I Never said I was sad
Am just trying to be real
This reality is nothing mundane
I hide my problems well
What I feel is better than what have had
They say loneliness is pain
I say loneliness comes from being alone
After all it can be comforting
My reality is unhealthy but soft
Your reality is dramatic and boxed
I prefer a state of non-existence with lemon than constru...

Take it to the moon,
The way the ocean gleams and the way I cry,
Oh how the tears are truthful,
They speak my mind.
Deep down by the ocean shore there lays what was once a shell,
Now simply the water that it once emerged from,
Little else but shattered rock and the remnants of a cold past.
I don't believe in the rights of men among soldiers,
Yet I feel the ocean's tide may wipe away my...

Dark shadows willow under trees of the forgotten essence,
I feel lonely again,
The honey strikes through reflections of the moon.
Does anyone care for me?
Do I deserve to fear the lonely future?
Or does the universe have a plan.
Yet still the clouds roll in unhalting,
To cover my eyes blind,
I put my hands forward into petrifying darkness.
Witnessing the great meaning of rain throug...

Tere janey ke baad hawayein beyqaraar
Khushk aabshar , fizayein sogwaar
To suno meri udaas aankhon ka raaz
Kisi ki yadun me meri aahein girftaar
Ye itna parayapan achanak na guzrey
Tere paas aate hi bahein sharamsaar
Rotey kuch mei ne bhi mangha hai rab se
Pyase labu se meri duayein ashkbaar

Kohl By : Mirza Sharafat
night has enveloped, to give me some relief
now invisible are walls of separation, and thy grief
where blood quenches the thirst
disloyalty is faith last and first
is the religion my beloved belongs to
I beckoned, red and black r...

Solitude is mysterious
Solitude is strange
It can feel bliss'd, but it can render
Every time, it can always range.
It's when time smites me wrong
Or I'm feeling depressed
I'd join a lonely room for company
And tell it how I was stressed.
But what if you can't stand it,
What if you're pining for just anyone?
Keep seeking; in a world founded on those who care,...

I sit alone at a corner shop,
Eating my meal,
It's strange to be alone;
Not that I'm unaware of its presence,
Not that I fear it's belonging,
Not even that it's strange because of the surrounding people,
All accompanied by at least another.
My soul intrinsically separated,
I simply feel at ease.

I don't feel worthy of this earth.
It's a bright and happy day today.
I feel a fraud amongst it all.
As kids and parents play.
Sandcastles, colourful buckets and plastic spades,
Happy laughter fills the air.
Desperate darkness clouds it.
There is no point, no joy, no end,
I am hollow and so void.
I smile and wave and look the part,
Each photo frames the day.
Behind the mask the c...

The more I go
The darker it gets
Doesn't matter what is my choice
It's always the wrong one
I missed all the tracks
But there is no survivor left in me
I wish I was the never ending story
That at least came to end.

Four-wall safe-box secure.
Heart beating duldrum to duldrum.
The World - Beyond my door: Danger.
Other-folk. Living other-life.
Of glee. Fun. Friends. Sociality.
One screen. Glitch. One portal-opening reality twist.
Unchecked at the door.
Unpermission-beg desperation-need self-denialled.
To Closest. Furthest.

Silenus In The Brewery Tap
light fights its way
across a peeling window frame
and crashes lazily
upon a dark wooden table
where a man sits
stooped by work and alcohol
so that he seems
to stare for guidance in a pint pot
that stands half consumed
while froth slides down its sides
street noise scrabbles
to overcome the slow whumpwhump of a ceiling fan...

I'm lying awake at 3am
Why am I never intoxicated with positivity?
Why aren't I a fountain of enthusiasm?
Why can't I see the euphemistic light in this unilluminated darkness?
I'm lying awake at 3am
All of my uncertainties are overwhelming
The formidable anxiety I've become acclimated with seeps in through open wounds
And yet I've learned to find tranquility in this res...

My greatest decision was to give my heart to nobody, but it resulted in an amazing loneliness. I created a safe haven. A comfortable place in my head, where words couldn't reach and prying eyes could never see. But with the gain of comfort, there came a sudden, unexpected loss of understanding.
I began to look for answers in places I had never dreamed existed, places that only exist in t...

I was not aware how weak I was,
Till I felt your voice,
The reaction I had to you
As my new favorite song.
I had no choice
After you I was going
To bad if where I was headed
How the minute my soul awakened
from a pit so far down
it be considered a ghost,
God need not help me then
for he knew I was long gone
already down on my knee's

He nods to one side
Gives in to a few minutes
Maybe half an hour’s worth of tiredness.
In his bungalow
Time is stood still
Mid afternoon melts in through the curtains
Through the half open window.
Outside impatient young mums
Scold their primary school children for wanting to go on the swings
When they just want to get back home
And plant them in front of the tv

Feelings that once were hidden
Are now expressed to you.
Days that once were stormy
Are now the brightest blue.
Times that once were lonely
Are now filled with pleasure.
All that once was mine alone
Are now things we both treasure.
Nights that once were cold
Are now comforting and warm.
Fears that once were very real
Are now gone with the storm.
A heart that once was broken
Can now fi...

The crack of dawn, yet absent of light
Darker than the hours preceding
Only one could dread a new day
But it's a constant battle and endless fight
To rise from this dungeon
To enter this isolated Hell
The morning is slow, yet all too short
Lead weights on all limbs and eyes
No routine, but a mission
To begin each day, Only to distort
The true soul trapped inside
Tuesday 18th August 2015 4:09 am
In the calm of darkness
I find great peace
The whirring of my head begins to cease
For in my everyday
I so struggle with just being me
Speaking my wants doesn’t come easily
There is conflict
In every decision I make
Trying to act for everyone’s sake
Often I forget myself
In that moment I’m not important
As old beliefs still h...

There was a man who understood,
everything he thought he could,
so sure was he that all was clear,
he didn't make time for someone dear.
And when at last she'd packed her case,
he realized he was losing more than face,
but change was then much too late it seems.
for her heart was broken by shattered dreams.
Years then passed by in such long procession,
his own life floundered ...

FOR ABSENT FRIENDS

My Windstream Official Telephone Directory
contains no listing for Soul Mate,
business or residential.
A broader search on Google Maps informs
there exists an error of insufficient information;
Destination entered cannot be displayed.
People Search dot com wants cold cash,
but they are certain you do exist…somewhere.
Meanwhile, expectations dwindle
down this lonely country road.

'The Art of Being Lonely'
Loneliness is Ugly...
Loneliness is a world full of people
Yet still being alone
Loneliness is a room full of people
But never could be further away
Loneliness is finding it hard to say
“I am lonely”
Loneliness is not to be shared
Loneliness is the sharing of it...
But to still be lonely
Loneliness is in an over populated world
With lands e...
