Do you hear me when I say hello?
Can you hear me cry alone?
I’m surrounded by should be friends,
Who can’t see me in this box I’m in.
I yell and scream but you don’t hear me.
You just laugh, dance, and sing,
All as you encircle me.
Everywhere I look are friendly faces
Having fun and going places.
You all at once were by my side,
Promising that’s where you’ll always reside.
Yet, here I am swimming in tears,
Fueled by all my realized fears.
I’m not sure what I did wrong.
I tried to avoid this all along.
I’m sorry if I cling or annoy
I live in fear of a loss of joy.
I’m sorry if its all my doing.
Was it my constant chatter or loud chewing?
Did I laugh too loud or agree too much?
Was I a drag when you were carrying on and such?
Am I just that little in the realm of interests
That you could forget me after a few hours on Pinterest?
I’m in a box made of one way glass.
You see yourself when you see me.
My heart is slowly turning to ash,
Because it has no company.
