Watching

July 29, 2008
By Josh Barker, Suffolk, VA

I sit watching
Other people’s lives unfurl
Watching them live al I want
Watching others love
And have fun
Wanting only to mingle
But I can’t
So I write
I write about what I watch
Everything else hurts too much
I find places I can have fun
People I can love
In my fiction
They are more real then those around me
But I still have to watch
I want it all so much
I can’t stop
It’s my addiction
Sitting, dreaming
Falling in love
Alone
