An unknown word that describes a well known feeling

Nobody knows what it's like

to feel like this

Sealed up when I need to be open

Open when there's no one to listen

Mumbling what I'm afraid to say aloud

because it may be heard

Crying in the dark

listening to slow sad music

loud enough so no one will hear my sobs

No one knows this pain

No one knows this anguish

No one knows how it feels to have

people around you all along...

yet to always be alone.

      Oh mari. I understand too, loneliness and feeling alone are poles apart. If this sums up you, I hope it changes soon.
