Verse for the Lonely – by Charles Aubrey Rogers

Lonely flower from Gene Nimocks
Lonely flower from Gene Nimocks

All by myself feeling’ lonely as hell
Like I fell in a well, no one hears me yell
Someone get me out of this pit
someone get me out of this shit
Sorry drippin’ down my pen
Bleeding out when I spit

This is a verse for the lonely
When you’re hurt mission’ homies
Poppin’ perks cause your’ lonely on earth
It’s the worst when you immerse into solitude
Your shadow is the only one who follows you
The mirror is the only 1 who talks to you
It eats you alive till it swallows you
Wallow through feeling hollow thinking no 1 understands

God is just a man who let the illusion expand
I once held love in my hands
But fuck she ran
And the pain snapped back like rubber bands

  1. Amazing lyrics.
    I really believe he was a genius.
    He wrote truth from his feelings. Uncensored.
    I would save it it’s raw but not rough.
    It’s real.
    Yes life is rough, depression us rough and addiction is rough.
    I really wish he was here, he has so much to give to the world.

    1. What I mean is I wouldn’t say it was terribly rough. I should proofread before I hit send 🙂 And thank you for sharing
