***Sorry, this is a really long description, just read the first few lines and the last two or three. The rest isn't really important and can be ignored if you so choose***

I feel like 1.) I haven't posted much here recently and 2.) all of the things I have posted have been quite sad and depressing. I'm going to be honest, this is another one. I'm just going through a lot right now in my life and this is the best outlet I have for expressing my feelings and thoughts about my life right now. This is based off of something my 'friend' said to me one day during class that really hit me hard and I actually scared my other two friends by avoiding them all for the rest of the day. She said, "You're so lucky you're lonely and don't have guys chasing after you. It's exhausting, really."

Eight hours you’ve slept, but you claim you’re exhausted.

The two I’ve slept, seem small and weak,

and I feel more tired than before,

But I bite my tongue and nap in class and don’t whisper a word.

 

You say you’re a mess and forever alone,

But you’re dragging around a chain of boys

with chins hitting the floor.

But I’m the lucky one to you, as I am ignored.

 

Your homework is hard, you constantly drone,

But it’s easy, just simple work.

Compared to mine it’s nothing, as I’m constantly going,

But you sit and ignore the stack that builds itself behind you.

 

Lonely, no friends, you whine in a text,

But you’re texting us three and chatting with six more brats.

You may think you’re alone but have you tried on my shoes,

As I’m the only one without another fish in the sea.

 

Why don’t we hang out, you smirk,

We used to spend forever having fun, what happened to that.

I look in your eyes and shake away words,

“Yeah, tell me about it.”
