Forlorn

I wanted to talk to someone
When I lost my best friend
And my heart was broken
But I was left alone to pick up the pieces of my heart

I wanted to talk to someone
When I lost the guy who I thought was “The One”
And I was shattered
But I was alone, with no one to hold on to me

I wanted to talk to someone
When I lost my grandma
I wanted to weep on their shoulders
But I had to be strong, I had to be responsible

I wanted to talk to someone
To share my deepest thoughts
I thought they would be interested in listening
But, they just weren’t.

I wanted to talk to someone
To be weird
To be myself
But I had to hide myself behind a plaster of fake-ness

I wanted to talk to someone
When I reached a milestone in my life
I wanted to jump in joy
The only people there were there to discourage me.

I wanted to talk to someone
So, I initiated a conversation
I heard nothing
Except the deafening silence.

I want to talk to someone
But there is no one there
There is nothing there
Except darkness, my old friend.
