she’s lonely
she cries in her sleep
she’s lonely

she smiles
and her friends never see
she’s lonely

looking for someone
who will never want her
she’s lonely

constantly striving
to be the best but failing
she’s lonely

finally meeting someone
who takes her pain away
she’s not so lonely

but losing him
what feels like the very next time
she’s lonely

he meets his new number one
and she, again becomes number two
she’s lonely

when people ask how she’s been
she inwardly sighs and says
I’m lonely

but out loud
she smiles
been busy

what’s been going on lately people ask
I’ve been super busy she says
I’m lonely

wanna go out tonight friends ask
sorry I’m super busy
I’m lonely

netflix and a razor blade later
she sits in the tub
I’m lonely

meeting someone
who makes her look forward to not being
alone
she’s less lonely

being friends
with the girl he loves
she’s lonely

black space in her mind
she goes back to the razor one more time
she’s depressed

again she feels like
the last pick of the patch
she’s depressed

another cut
won’t hurt anyone
she’s lonely

another cut
and she was gone
she was lonely

funeral comes and goes
people walk by her casket
she was lonely

parents crying in the corner
best friend sitting there, numb and sad
she was lonely

the one who made her feel less lonely
filled with love and pain thinking:
she was lonely
