Numb

Tired

I keep coming back

to this

Empty

Lonely

Unable to imagine

connecting with someone

On a level

That actually matters

I’m surrounded

By friends and family

But not one of them

Really knows me

How can any of us

Know each other

At a level beyond

Superficial bullshit

We are each of us

Too wrapped up

In ourselves

In our own problems

In our own uniqueness

To ever truly touch

Another person’s soul

And how can it be otherwise

When it takes us

Our whole lives

To even begin to know

ourselves

So we are each

Alone

In a crowded room

Lonely

Lost

Constantly reaching out

Forever falling short
