Sitting in a world full of people and yet I still feel lonely. 
Wondering if those days of happiness will ever come back. 
Thinking about the memories and how we were perfect for each other. 
Wishing I could get my mind off of you anytime soon. 
Spending my days miserable while you could care less. 
Breaking down each day as the stress builds up slowly. 
Feeling like an abandoned house that's neglected and just wants a little TLC. 
Wanting what everybody has or wants, Love.
Striving to keep a smile on my face to keep the tears from coming & staining my cheeks. 
Sometimes I feel like it wasn't meant for me to be happy. 
I see everyone around me smiling &  content with what they have. 
Me on the other hand, I keep a "fake"smile on & an empty heart yearning to be filled with love. 
What I see as love starts from the inside, for others it starts on the outside. 
My soul is telling me to stay strong, my heart is telling me to keep looking, but my brain is telling me to stop it all. 
My pride is shot, my ego is dead, my confidence has left. 
My heart cries & so do my eyes. 
The tears soak my pillow as I cry myself to sleep every night. 
I feel as if I don't belong anywhere in this world. Like a dirt spot in an all white room.

Independence is my happiness, I view things as they are without regard to place or person. My country is the world, and my religion is to do good. - Thomas Paine

Good job! This is nice, you sound very honest in how you feel about this. One suggestion: break up the punctuation, so that there isn't a period at the end of every line, and it will make the poem more dynamic! Well done,though! check out some of my stuff, if you have the time? :)

"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"

This is really a good start. I can tell you're writing straight from your heart, and don't care to shroud it all in mystique...like I do. lol
