Being Alone

Folder: 
In Being

Frankly, being alone isn't so bad

Its relaxing

Thoughtful

Creative

Silent

But in the end

You're still alone

And if you don't contemplate the fact

Perhaps you'll stay sane

Perhaps

 

Because I've seen people tip the other way

I've watched them fall over the edge

Scraping at the walls

With fingernails that twist like snakes

The aloneness consumes them

And turning your head doesn't ease the pain

 

But if you know how to do it

Being alone can be fun

Mostly

But in the end

You're still alone

And the deafening silence

That peirces your eardrums

Is the only reminder

Of the bleeding knife

That peirces your heart
