The Point?

The Point?

A Poem by Pain Love & Skulls

Huddled in the corner of an alleyway

I sit there on the ground,

The cold, barren ground

It matches my soul.


It is pitch black

The only light comes from the still, subtle moon


I see few people walk by,

I hear the somewhat faint, distant voices,

I sit and wait if I can hear someone calling my name

Wondering where I am.


But I hear nothing,

Nothing at all it is dead, complete silence

I hope, wish, pray

That I would hear someone calling my name.


Hoping someone would be looking for me

Anyone that cares,

Or even cared about me

Wondering where I could be.


But yet just as I expected,

 I hear nothing

No voices, no sounds

Nothing, as if the whole world has disappeared

Left me here to fend for myself


I knew that no one cared

If someone did I would hear their voice

Calling my name

Out in the streets looking,



Still hoping

But nothing

So what’s the point of hoping

Exactly there isn’t a point

So I stop…

Your pen cares and those who you reach with what you create care… I started writing again because my parents are deceased, I am estranged from the rest of my family, and I hate the people I work with… It’s just me and what I scrawl down on paper… Hang in there yo writing might save your life some day it saved me:)

Sometimes we really become the emptiness within ourselves. The void that has seemingly always been there becomes large enough to swallow you. The moments of realizing this are the darkest and truly the most humbling experience in life. Very powerful piece of work you've got here.

I used to feel that way but then my friends took me back in and I finally found that perfect guy that I have been waiting for and I know that someone really cares about
and now I don't have to cut myself cause I felt that way.

This is something everyone can relate to. We all have those moments where we feel like there's nothing left to hope for, and that no one could possibly care for us. Just remember, there's always someone, somewhere. Amazingg as always, though (:
