Here I am sitting in my comfy, overused seat,

The warm sun shines through the windows all around me,

Yet it cannot warm the loneliness in my heart.

I ask each friend multiple times per day if they would like to catch up,

No answer…

From nobody...

Gaming takes my mind off the lack of sociality in my world,

Yet it only works for so long.

Maybe if I wasn’t so sensitive, I could start to respect myself,

I say sorry about things which do not require the word.

Having a girlfriend was nice, I felt happy and fulfilled,

But it was my immaturity that lost her respect,

And is what made me let her go.

Most of my friends do not leave their house and fill their days with YouTube,

I have tried to do the same,

If they can do it, so can I…

The idea worked for a few hours but my mind always returns to the same sad realization,

There is no one there to enjoy it with me.

I know there are seven billion people in the world,

However I feel like I will never find the right girl for me.

The people I meet within my job must think I’m so friendly,

But I use a fake smile.

Is it possible to be so alone when surrounded by so many people?

A girl who is happy to sit and watch movies all day with me would be a dream come true,

Someone who can play board games and go walking with,

A gym buddy who actually joins me when I go.

I need someone who can give me a reason to go out and explore the world.

The places I could go would be amazing and the girl even more so,

I hope she will enter my life soon and warm me up.
