we have grown so accustomed
to wearing our masks
and yet
we still wonder why
we feel

the night sky
is calling my name
and i find that
i cannot close my eyes
my corneas are stars
and i'm falling
like coins-
rusted and fading,
forever switching owners
forever out of place

i think,
loneliness is a disease
the world is infected.)
"I think the most common cause of insomnia is simple; it's loneliness."

The art of friendship is becoming lost. we are lonely because we forget that to not be alone we must give more of ourselves than most of us are willing to give.

i could not agree more! it's a sad, sad cycle that has become commonplace in modern society. people are too afraid of getting hurt to give more of themselves.

interesting. you think people are withdrawing into themselves because they are afraid of getting hurt? i think its more that they are selfish, wrapped up in a little bubble where its all about them.

but perhaps our outlooks are part of the reason why your writing kicks ass and i am left feeling envious, lol.

just my personal opinion! it may vary between individuals though, with some following your perspective. and nah, to each their own! it's great to have differing points of view :]

Agreed. I always enjoy listening to other peoples opinion. Provided, of course, that the opinions are shared and equally respected.
I admit that my perspective on people is, perhaps, a little cynical and jaded.

i can understand your perspective on people, though. it is what it is!

true enough. i sometimes wish i was a little less jaded but i seldom count on people doing anything they are supposed to.

i can totally relate, but you have to break out of that shell in order to find the best people! :heart:

People are alone because we can never know what one another are thinking. I feel this is a terrible failing in life :(

i think this is extremely true, but i also value having privacy in my mind. i feel like if everyone possessed the power to read minds, we would have some much bigger issues on hand ^^;
