eyes transfixed on him when she thinks he's not looking

his gaze set upon her when she's unaware he's staring

both in the dark

feeling so desolately alone,

yet unbeknownst to them

their journeys are the same.

feeling like no one will ever understand you

feeling like not one person in the world has the slightest bit of a clue

of what you feel like

it seems impossible that anyone could ever comprehend the dark depths of your mind.

by yourself in the dark

you wonder if anyone will reach out to save you.

desperately walking, mentally blind

looking for the light switch.
