People who masquerade around pretending to care... My personal experience...

Sitting here all alone,
Wondering what I’ve done wrong.
My heart, cold as stone,
Yet still I crave your love all along

All I want is a physical touch,
A simple hug or touch on my shoulder.
Or am I asking too much?
Don’t think my heart can be any colder.

I see you with your other friends,
I want to be there with them too.
Wonder if this is where it ends?
Why do I want to love you?

I hate this way that I feel,
Watching you with them does hurt.
Wishing these wounds would heal,
My senses are numb yet so alert.

Could you just love me this once?
Just let me know that you’re there.
I feel so shunned and alone.
Please, I beg of you, I need you to care.

Wishing your small greetings were enough,
But longing for so much more.
I’m not really all that tough.
Been here so many times before.

So I shall stay alone,
Hiding from the world.
I hope you can take me home,
Opening myself up like a rug unfurled…
