Lonely in a room filled with strangers. 

Feeling alone right now screams danger.

Wishing I could take just one of these strangers home.

Just anything not to be alone.

My thoughts, my feelings, I wish I could share.

Just anything not to have to bear these feelings alone.

I listen. I listen. I swear!

I do all I can to show you I’m there.

So, how do you walk away so easily? 

You take then dismiss me.

But, your presence eases me. 

I know you feel that. How could you not? You always leave. It’s a hard pill to swallow.

Knowing you with the big heart, don’t notice my broken parts.

So tonight I prepare for the fight with another night, alone with thoughts. 

Thoughts I wish I could share with you.

It’s too much to call you my boo.

But you,

more than anyone should know the weight I carry, 

and what it’s like to sleep alone with heavy thoughts and a broken heart.

A broken heart plus all these parts.

I’ll get through the night. 

I might just pray that the day will come that you’ll realize I’m the one who’s just like you – alone in a room wishing someone would notice me.

Just enough to care about me.
