Just writing about my experiences being a loner.

A man constantly looking back in my direction.

Standing at the mirror taking in my reflection.

A stranger seeking a friendly connection

 Walking away as I give an unintended expression.

The pounding of footsteps above where I sit.

While thinking of all the words which were said.

And seeing vividly the many errors I commit.

These happenings oftentimes fill me with dread.

I reflect to seek the answer to this mystery.

Why does my mind seem to play tricks on me.

Everything I see and hear couldn't be reality.

Since I alone am the seeker of misery.

Was there ever a time I could smile at a neighbor?

Laugh the time away joking with a stranger?

Know that I have found my place in the world?

No. Never to me have these blessings occurred.

I spend my time in a quiet and thoughtful haze.

My peaceful reverie hidden behind sullen gaze.

There is a voice within me, yet so far away.

why can't I just find one word to say?
