Its always there,
The feeling you don't belong.

You stand around, looking.
Looking at all the smiling faces.
And think "That should be me".
But its not.

The feeling you shouldn't be here,
You shouldn't be there,
You shouldn't be anywhere.
Because you just don't belong.

hello mike,
I know what your saying,
but always remember you do belong.
take care

Ben F..

What I wrote is how I feel. I look around, and even though everything seems normal, I feel as if its not. Its hard to explain, I just feel that I have no purpose for being here, no place to go. Thanks for the comment, and the advice though. You take care too =).

I feel like I'm stuck in a crowded room with suicidal people. I really feel sorry for you guys, I wish happiness was like a cake.. I'd cut a slice off for you. Although, my life isn't all that great. Just two very special people in it. One of them being Mike. :) Keep up the poems Mike, I love them as much as you.. nearly.

I've read ALL your poems tonight and am reading them again to write comments for them :P

I knew you were unhappy and I did all I could to make you happy without letting you know that I knew. I had no idea you felt this strongly for such a long time though.

"Looking at all the smiling faces.
And think "That should be me".
But its not."

I've seen you smile a lot, and yeah, I can tell when you fake it and when you don't

I've also read every comment and Raimee sounds cool :P...Listen to her more often ...
