I Don't Want to Be Alone

Wed, 11/06/2013 - 01:12 -- Jay_M

I don't want to be alone today.
My thoughts are too loud on my own.
I want to talk. Or listen.
So I don't have to hear the words in my head.

I don't want to be alone today.
My own voice fills the silence when I am.
Today it's harsh. And loud.
Telling me the what-if's and tearing me apart.

I don't want to be alone today.
I'm too tired to tell myself I'm beautiful.
I'm too lost. Too broken.
All I have are the phrases I usually smother.

I don't want to be alone today.
But the people around me are too abrasive.
They are centered. In themselves.
They don't care enough to spend time with me.

I don't want to be alone today.
The silence is spliting my heart.
Slivering it. To pieces.
But there is nobody to make me feel wanted.
