To love and to be loved; to hurt and to be hurt. These are the ideals that make up humanity. ~Me (Lisa)

I drank out of the cup,
Of desperate loneliness,
My soul a running tap,
Of unyielding despair.

Pain of the abandoned,
Weighing me down,
My struggles no use,
Against depressions iron grip.

Why would you hurt me,
Leave me alone,
If you truly cared,
You wouldn't rub me so raw.

It hurts to speak,
I cannot utter a sound,
For there are no voices,
When you are all alone.

People start to blend,
Life meaningless and gray,
That is what happens,
When you are living in a dream.

The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant. -The Doctor

Even though it has a depressing mood, it was powerful, and I really really liked it! :P
