Dillin Clarke ~ Have You Ever Wondered?

Have you ever wondered how is it like
to feel like a stranger?
Like a fish out of water
Like a teardrop in a loud laughter
Like love in a heart of a hater!

Have you ever wondered how is it like
to feel lost?
Like a drop in the ocean
Like a needle in a haystack
Lost... that you don't know white
from black!
Like walking straight in a destination
When you know there is no way to go
back!

Have you ever wondered how is it like
to feel so confused?
That you don't know
when you're treated nicely
And when you are abused!

Have you ever felt so much low?
And you don't know what to do or
where to go?
When you see all the doors around
you are locked and closed!

Have you ever wondered how is it like
to be in a non-stop stress?
When you never feel so sure about
something you always have to guess!
when you feel like crying out loud
And spit that burden of these hard
feelings inside you

However, these feelings you have to
keep & suppress
Although, you are in the greatest
need for a gentle caress!
Had anyone felt so much pain like
this before?
'Cause that's what I really feel...
maybe even more!

I don't wanna feel like a stranger
I don't wanna feel lost
I don't wanna feel confused
I don't wanna be in a non-stop
stress
I just want to stop this dreadful
feeling of loneliness!

  1. This is so much a part of the human condition, Dillin. Feelings of isolation can be very self-destructive. You write with a very honest voice.
