Thank you guys. But this is far from my experience, I tried fitting in other peoples shoes to engage emotionally to their feelings and how they view the surroundings of their lives. So I came up with this as awareness to everyone who keep friends but bothers not to find out how they are away from the masked life they let seen. I realized that the number of people suffering from loneliness and depression are mostly those who surrounds themselves with people.
They hide their emotions so well in the cover of friendships yet still they suffer alone. Do not be one nor should you let your friend be among the lonely ones. It may not be your duty, but as a concern party you really need to get involve, for doing so, you might be saving a life or lives.
Sadly there are lots of people who will relate to this because they either dont have friends or close family. When we were kids we would sit for hours talking to random elderly people and they would talk about their lives or we would sit and listen to our Grandma tell us about her adventures and life stories but you are right no one wants to listen any more. Very well written emotional and astute. Milly x

I don't talk or write much on sensitive poems, but You have another family here, talk to us and I am sure you will feel like home.
Hi, Darklight. This piece is very raw and I think we all can relate to that feeling of being alone in silence. People think of dying instead of living which appears to be easier. I do agree this world is in need of genuine relationships where there is openness and sharing of thoughts and feelings...but as you have said, people are busy surviving on their own...much more care about others.
Greatly expressed... I hope you know you are not alone.
Very dark indeed but I'm sure we all think that way sometimes.
I think I may possibly be a little like you although I have many friends. However my silence is self inflicted. If something is troubling it is never voiced and I tend to go through it alone. Much of it I vent in poems (although it's often hidden and sometimes very open). Never vocalised though.
Perhaps I'm stupid for bottling it up but it's the way I've always been.
That said there is an amazing bunch of people here who have also been through much. So there is always someone who will relate.
