i asked for someone to talk to.

a person

somebody that i didn’t know

that i wouldn’t have to small talk with.

somebody that i could tell how I feel 

cause i never tell anyone

but what did they give me 

three new pets 

“that you can talk to” 

i crave human attention 

from someone that has to listen 

or at least wants to. 

somebody that knows how i feel 

and won’t try to reason with me

just hold me 

listen to me

and tell me everything will be alright.
