Absent Friend

Ever since the wreck, I’ve been an absent friend

People want to see me, but I send

them away; I guess I prefer to be alone

I just want to stay home

I’ve always been a loner, but it’s worse now

I don’t mind long distance, but in person, wow!

I don’t understand it myself, but that’s just the way it is

I guess in person is too personal. My problem is this,

it’s my biggest fear. Irrational, yes,

and so hard for me to confess,

but if I’m being honest with myself,

just how long this will last, is just so hard to tell!
