My Favorites

All around are people

yet I am more alone than ever before

All these people

prying at my shell

like it was bark on a tree

They're all trying to get inside

                            There's not enough room

Gasping for air

Clawing for space

Too many people

Nothing my own

                             Air, I need Air

I need my confidant

to hold me

I need some close to hold on to

But the one fighting for that role

I do not trust

That person will hurt me

Again, just as before

The pain continues

The beatings continue

My confidant is gone

Taken from me without a fight

I'm so alone

Did he let me go?

I can no longer fight

Their claws are coming through

One last breath before

I am overtaken

                            Air, one last gulp of life
