    The cutting burn of humiliation
    No release found in gratification
    Looking from the outside in
    Not knowing even where to begin

    Worthless, Useless and so utterly helpless
    to fight, to understand left feeling hopeless
    that there could be a way out
    that someone , anyone could would heed my shout

    This heartfelt cry of utter despair and heartache
    at the loss, the inadequacy, the intense heartbreak
    Unable to fix, to mend, to soothe
    to seek, to find the inherent truth

    That is how I feel, isolated and alone
    trying so hard to stay away and not to moan
    Don't want to worry, burden or upset
    friends, family, ones I love so full of regret

    Regret at what I should have been, should have done
    Am I alone to blame? Am I the only one?
    Who should have changed, should have tried to fix
    Or do we all play a part, thrown together in the mix?

    No answers left, no way out to seek to find
    or is it just me again losing my proverbial mind
    Time to retreat, to hide, to withdraw from one and all
    as it seems no point as no one hears my call

    Sullen and remorseful one thing seems clear
    Need to leave to protect those I hold so dear
    Close in my heart they will always be, even when I die
    So all that is left is for me is to finally say Goodbye.

    So... I've been wondering some-thing: What's it like to be such an Outstanding Human Being? :) I'd really like to know - so I'll be taking meticulous notes!

    Well put. This took me back down memory lane. I never want to forget the life I once lived.

    Please stay. There is more to life than this... there is hope.
