Alone

You sit there by the phone

Say you don't want to talk

So I'll leave you alone

With your broken life

Your brown hair falls down Your gently arched back

You're waiting to drown

In something that isn't real

You're waiting for someone

Faceless, genderless, nameless

You're waiting for no one

Who's ever been real

The one who can stop you

From wanting to hurt

When no one cares what you do

You wait for him…or her to say no

The one who could turn you

Away from your endless questions

And tell you something true

Your first word of truth

You're waiting for something fake

Counting down, eight, seven, six

Every moment a mistake

For accidental thoughts

Just keep waiting…there's someone

If you want them so much

But I'm scared that there's no one

Because you fear their touch
