Away, Away

I feel the need to speak…


But I crawl away




Away away.

And I hope and dream of a better day, a day for me to be,
Be around people.

I say they just don’t like me



I am wrong.

I say I am just weird



I am wrong.

I curl up behind my wall, concealed,
hidden behind a seal, built by myself.

Have you ever felt that way?

Have you ever felt yourself trying to reach out to something
you are too frightened to touch?

Have you ever imagined yourself with the one you want
until it becomes real?

Then you realize,

It’s so far away



Away away

So far…


But it’s only you



Who is shrinking away.

Alright, I am the writer and after I submitted this poem I realized a lot of things I didn't like about the poem and that I wanted to change. Anyway, I know to change the "be around people" part.
