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.
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.
