I feel so alone and by myself even though love is laying right next to me Like there’s a whole world of tomorrows waiting for today to pass So that all my obligations are knocking on my front door, One after the other

I feel so alone when I wake up, Wishing I could stay sleep for just a few moments longer Than have to step outside Where people are waiting to talk to me, be around me; So I am of course riddled with anxiety Shaking at the steering wheel Hoping I don’t cross the yellow line, Crashing into the slew of cars barreling by me at near astronomical speeds I’m standing at the edge of a cliff, toes hanging over the unsteady ground I’m heavy with the weight of sorrow Pushing against my eyelids, sagging against my body So that I’m always holding back tears, always teetering on the end of my days Tired and alone
