I’ve been listening to this song for hours and my head aches but that doesn’t stop me
It keeps repeating and now my eyes burn
They have turned red and I do this to myself
I should get out but there’s nowhere to go on a Tuesday night
This restless feeling, there is no cure for so I wait…

It’s a lovely day to never feel this way again
And will I ever find someone who understands my mind?
I don’t think so
It’s just a sea of faces and vacant stares and they will never have to be in this place again

I have your number but I won’t call it
I fear rejection more than being alone
I’m almost nauseous
Maybe I’m dying?
Over dramatic, but that’s what happens when you have too much time to think about the end
The lights look blurry now and the cars pass me by on an energetic street that I have no part of

I will wait for you to find me but I know you never will
I will seek to you to save me but I know you never will
I will try to regain passion but I’m faltering
I will try to overcome this but I’m overwhelmed again

    General CommentUnfortunately I know exactly what this is about.

    Most people who have not experienced them underestimate the kinds of social anxieties the rejected feel. Loneliness can literally consume one's mind and give a feeling of utter hopelessness. Not the hopelessness you get when you realize your birthday present has arrived; the hopelessness you get when you realize all around you have forgotten your birthday.

    "And will I ever find someone who understands my mind? I don’t think so. It’s just a sea of faces and vacant stares and they will never have to be in this place again."

    The lonely want so bad to become a part of those who are socially warm that extreme jealousy kicks in. This can not be equated to. It is simply the worst form of emotional angst--knowing there is almost no chance of finding someone to share your pain, which increases even more just due to this fact.


    "I have your number, but I won’t call it; I fear rejection more than being alone."

    Some people have been hurt by others to a point at which they, even in their despair due to lack of contact with the outside world, reject anyone entering into their life. I've been told finding true friendship after rejection is like "Stepping on nails until you find one that feels good."


    "Maybe I’m dying? Over dramatic, but that’s what happens when you have too much time to think about the end."

    The rejected don't have much contact with the outside world and thus have no choice but to dwell on their own despair.


    "I will try to regain passion, but I’m faltering. I will try to overcome this, but I’m overwhelmed again."

    It sounds good on paper, but regaining what is lost through rejection and loneliness is impossible without having someone who truly understands. We cannot give up on these people; though they appear callous and distant, the shy reveal (as shown above; this is describing a friend of mine's feelings, not my own) to us things we would never have seen before. They're no different than us, but it's the fault of those who reject them that they appear as such.

    No one may read this. But to those who do: don't ignore these people. We need them just as much as they need us.

    General CommentI think you definately hit the nail on the head.

    I'm sorry that your friend had felt like how you described, I've bee in a similar position, but not as severe.
