As the lights start to fade, the streets become cleared.
the hurtful words replay in your ears
now sitting alone has made you weak and afraid
there is no one but you, who can remember your name.
what do you do when they lock the door and close the gate
no matter where you run to, you will always be late
the pain you inflict on yourself, no body knows
do you give up or refuse to let go?
trapped you feel, you're in a social cage
where can you escape, who will let you be safe?
continue to wander, pacing about
you keep losing yourself, there is a need to be found.
all those people nearby, they just go on with there lives
but no one has cared to notice you, in a very long time.
you feel worthless, not a thing to miss
ripped apart inside, you need to be fixed
there isn't anyone you can hold on to,
they all left you alone.
where is that sanctuary that once was your home?
where are your friends?
the ones you thought you trust?
now, all that you need, is somebody to love
you try to go on, you feel ready to fly.
but you go to get up; you have already died.
- Title: Alone

this poem was written during a time in my life when i went through addiction.
it's about feeling alone in a world, where people are around and in visible sight, but noone cares.
