    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...
  2. Intro
    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...
  3. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    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 A...
  9. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    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 One man’s...

    On a mission to self-destruct completely Neatly 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

    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...
