It's Lonely in My Attic

Updated on March 18, 2017

Quite all Around

Some people love you when you have it all but those same folks run away at the first sign of trouble. Real friends and family stick by you through thick and thin.

Where Did Everyone Go?

When I am on top, you are right beside me. When I am at the bottom you chide me. When I am ready to spend some loot, you are my first recruit. When I am tired or feeling weak, that's when I don't see you for a week. At one time I soared high but now i get depressed and eat a bored pie. You only come around and be nice when you want a slice. Where did everyone go? I don't know. What's next? Guess I'll find out in a group text.

I'm best friends with myself. My other pals are inside books on the shelf. Why do I even try, I'm not loved by anyone under the sky. I got ready and dressed, only to be stood up and left depressed. Treated like a freak, you close your ears when I speak.

Empty Upstairs

Leave me to my lonesome and I will entertain myself. If nobody wants to play with me, I will find something to do on my own.

My Attic, My Attic

It's my attic and it stays clear of clutter. nobody is here with me, did I stutter. All by myself, in my attic, no boxes, not even a shelf. Cheer me up. Is there a bunny around? Perhaps a funny clown. My Attic, My Attic...

Not much to do all alone. Trying to stay sane. I know to be strong but the bad in me says to do wrong. You said you loved me but you lied, so I retreat to my attic and hide. My Attic, My Attic...

I call but can't get in touch, no big deal, I didn't have to say much. I wanted a good buddy but when I ask you out you gotta study. Not easy being alone, as it turns the heart to stone. My Attic, My Attic...

Prayer and Reflection

Everyone needs time to pray or meditate on life in general. Take time to reflect on the past day or week in your spare time.

Alone at Last

Alone at Last. Alone at Last. Thank God Almighty I am alone at last. No talking or screaming, just thoughts of me walking while I'm dreaming. Nowadays, people have an attitude and they don't show gratitude. Time to myself is what I desire. Please do not let this moment expire. Alone at Last. Alone at Last. Thank God Almighty I am alone at last.

Alone at Last. Alone at Last. Thank God Almighty I am alone at last. Alone in my mind, it's the only place where I'm treated kind. It would be better to be lost on the oceans, than the cost of toying with my emotions.

Alone in the Dark (and the light)

More Than Words

Sticks and stones may break my bones but your words will never hurt me is an old saying that we all know is a load of....crap.

Sticks, Stones and Words Hurt

Sticks and stones may break my bones but your words hurt me more. It's all in your tone, the way you make me feel like dirt on the floor. When I heard you say it, I was full of hurt but couldn't display it. The words you speak do damage, It's been a week and it's still hard to manage. I know this poem is not art, but, it is what's in my heart.

Sticks and stones leave temporary scratches but your words leave permanent scar patches. Why do you do this, address the issue. Getting through this, left me with scar tissue. It pains me to say this, but I'd prefer taking rains of piss.

Happy Birthday to Me

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to...cry if I want to. Make a wish and blow out the candles.

I Wasn't Invited

It was a big party but my invitation must have been tardy. Family and friends get together but when I invite the bunch they say they can't make it cause bad weather. At the dinner table they all pass the salt and pepper. If I pull up a chair I'm treated as a leper. It hurt that I wasn't invited, I have no worth, I wasn't delighted.

With a heavy heart I sigh, what happened, let's start with why?

Am I Repulsive

I guess you cannot stand the sight of me because it is obvious I make you sick. Some people are so shallow that it is ridiculous.

Not a Monster

Cut me and see that I bleed, Far from perfect, even when I didn't need, I showed greed. Treated second class, even when I acted first class, I was treated as useless as a speck of ash. People keep pointing and they stare. I hide in the corner cause I care. Treated like a roach all my life, wish I had a coach to tell me right. Don't treat me like I'm from another planet, I can't take it, my heart isn't made from granite. You look at me weird, as if I should be feared, and my name has been smeared.

Far from perfect but not a monster.

Bleeding Brains

Too many thoughts leave my brain making me feel as though I can't take it much longer. Alone we crumble but as a team we can reach the pinnacle.

It's Lonely in My Attic

It's lonely in my attic but to be fair there is no more room. It is full with my brain, and thoughts of reaching my tomb. I talk but nobody hears what I got to say. I walk but people go the other way. I like to chat with others but I'm treated like a rat by mothers. Hard to talk to people, when they think you walk in evil.This past day, went out, and was treated as a cast away.

My attic is dark more than it is light. It is my ark for sleeping at night. I try to take it on the chin with thick skin but it is hard because of the hearts of men.
