L Word

Loneliness defined.

An emotional state in which a person experiences a powerful feeling of emptiness and isolation. Loneliness is more than the feeling of wanting company or wanting to do something with another person. Loneliness is a feeling of being cut off, disconnected and alienated from other people. The lonely person may find it difficult or even impossible to have any form of meaningful human contact. Lonely people often experience a subjective sense of inner emptiness or hollowness, with feelings of separation or isolation from the world.

It is the worst feeling in the world to have a sense of loneliness. It is often more difficult to know that you have friends, family and people around you but as a matter of fact they are not, they are so distant. Maybe they physically exist and are there but they are emotionally absent.

All i know is that i am disconnected and i don’t really belong.

People might listen but don’t understand; you write, people read but they don’t comprehend; you cry, people empathize and you try to hide.
