In a room full of people I still feel lonely.

It’s cold were I am.

No one hears me.

Would they listen if they did?

Alone, I face an uncertain future.

Afraid, I try to stand.

Alone.

Lonely.

I hate it!

I hate the walls I put up,

But I don’t feel safe without them.

Blaming the world when in fact I am the one who’s closed up.

 

It’s cold were I am.

No one hears me.

I do not speak.

They can’t hear me.

I stay silent.

I don’t want to be afraid,

Untrusting.

I’m scared,

Of being happy,

Cared for,

Dependent.

 

I am afraid I’ll forget how to fight.

 That at that precise moment I’d be dropped

from the warmth. 

 

It’s cold where I am.
