When You're So Alone Inside


I could stand among
a throng of people
compacted into one small room,
but there's only you,


-when you're so alone inside.


I could be listening
to a chorus of voices
in symphony next to my ear,
but you only hear your own heartbeat,


-when you're so alone inside.


I could sit
in a hall of mirrors
each reflecting back
an image of myself,
multiplied to many,
but you see only one,


-when you're so alone inside.


When you're so alone inside,
your tears echo back
each drop
as they fall into a vast pool
of your empty shell.


When you're so alone inside
no one comforts
no one asks
no one cares
no one notices,
causing you to be...


even more...


-alone inside.
