Loneliness Is Depressing

Loneliness is a tough one to battle,
it’s like battling depression.
Nighttime is the worst time.
Everything is quiet
except the thoughts
playing dominoes in your head,
they chat about everything
you don’t want to remember.

Wounded in the Middle

Emotionally abused
by the voices
shoving blame in his head,
telling him
he is the reason
why his parents
are getting divorced.

He is stranded
in the middle
of a bitterness battle;
caught in the crossfire
of their problems,
watching sadly,
grieving silently

as they grow
further and further apart,
throwing hurtful words and insults
into an already blazing fire
and it wounds him deeply
with the guilt of
a broken home destroyed
by his beloved mom & dad.
