Hi! I'm not new to PC but it's been so long since I've been here that I've forgotten my login info, haha!
Anyways, something I've always found very interesting about people, and rather distinguishing between them is whether or not they have either hope or despair behind their motivations and...
How can I express the amount of hopelessness that permeates around me?
Every day, I have to watch and listen to people needlessly suffering from things that have little to no lasting value. Perhaps it is presumptuous of me to project my values upon others, but it has become increasingly...
I'm more or less trying to use this thread to verbalize some of the things I've been dealing with lately, in hopes that it may either help someone else contextualize their own experience, or provide a means for conversation about how to deal with these issues.
I feel like one of the greatest...
Sadness lurks in those unkempt corners
When not swept properly, it festers and grows
It invades the silence when the mind is idled
Tainting the calm sunset as a fierce wind blows
It preys on that fleeting sensation of contentment
A transient flame obliterated by the rain
A firefly in a jar...
It’s hard to keep a straight face
Hard to keep your shoes laced
The mad rush of engines invading your private space
When that hurricane comes blowin’ in
Rattling your bones and rustling your feathers
You’re an old, old soul and they don’t get you, babe
They’ve got places to go and faces to...
The people who have friends
They don’t spend much time in that hole
Down in that lonely well
Before their phones are ringing off the hook
People keeping tabs and wondering where they are
Must be nice
I have nothing to grab onto to pull my bones up from the crypt
Yet they tell me to...
There's a power outage over in this corner
Can't you tell by the lack of light?
I tend to short-circuit when the thoughts and feelings overwhelm
They entrap me in their rapturous storm of wind and acid
The black glove of despair
Clenched around my throat
Gasping for breath and nearing death...
Trying to cast an anchor upon a concrete, empty, flat bed ocean floor
No stronghold to cling to, no hope to hang onto
Temporary spurts of enthusiasm and vigour
Soon to be deflated by a cloud growing bigger
Wading in waters of perpetual change
Each day taking aim but slipping out of range
I've been feeling really down for quite some time and I wanted to post this to see if anyone can relate, if you know someone that this has or is happening to, or even how it might translate into the functions. Basically, I'm wondering if I'm abnormal.
This all started in the beginning of this...
Tombstone on the front door
Playing the part of a corpse today, ma
Bring flowers if you must but do not disturb
This is only a role, I’ll step off the stage in time
They peer into my urn, hoping to discern
They tap on my tomb, looking to exhume
One man’s pine box is another man’s womb
On a mission to self-destruct completely
In a dignified sort of way
The weary poet way
Fatigued from the race
Needing a change of pace
On the cusp of capsizing
Into a drowning abyss
Spend away and dwindle that figure
Add more pressure to that sensitive trigger
Drag those bones wherever...
The distant, morbid, green-grey thrush of melancholia
That feasts upon the magic windows
Where once we saw mystical fortune
And dreamed lucid dreams of ecstatic fantasy
In that instant the fog-filled recess of sleepy town inundated
Illuminated, cast afire
Rattling and rotting in the ruins...
Quell the fears so that I may carry on
Forward with stealth through shadowy quarters
I lay distant from lands of fortune
Deprived of fruit
Here's my signal that nightfall has set in strong
We have reached the nadir
Too weak to continue
Lone sensation of rainfall on dirt
I'am feeling hopeless right now, but i am also experiencing a strong aversion towards this feeling of hopelessness.
long story short: I'am ambitious (learned trait) kid (age 21) from India. I'll graduating this year with a degree in electronics and communication engineering, not very smart but...
Corners of my conscience remain without light
Hunger and thirst, condemned to hopeless night
Despair, like myopia, obscures sight
Maimed at the hands of an invisible foe
Blinded by the talons of a deathly crow
Sadness disables, black pall upon the show
Frigid winds of fear inhibit your ability...
Someone cracked the door open
Howling winds of fear and anxiety
Hail stones of insecurity
Rain upon the tender village
Using all my might to slam the door shut
The forecast calls for corrosive interactions
Disappointments and heartache
No ointments for heartbreak
Many hours of darkness...
My weary eyelids eclipse my view
Tears once plentiful are now so few
Once a rain forest inside
Now a dry and dusty desert
I am neither the warrior nor the champion
I once thought myself to be
Wounded and terminally broken
No repair to be seen
I have been mangled and mauled
By the winds that howl...
On pensive lamentation
Here in the hollow hole
Where the emptiness subdues
And darkness coddles the soul
Reaching, finding nothing
Only the echo of my breath
In a meaningless existence
Disjointed birth till death
I hunger, I thirst, I crave
But the cosmos caters not
The world provides no...
Hollow, paralyzed, broken, decayed
Tortured by despair, disillusioned, dismayed
Dragging my carcass to each destination
Pretending to look forward to transparent occasions
Seeing everyone else with signs of vitality
Strumming their chords in tune with reality
Meanwhile my existence is plagued...
