The One Person Who Listens

The One Person Who Listens
You come home
After a long, hard day
You plop yourself on the couch
Reach for the phone
And cry to the one person who consoles

You come home
After a exciting, fun day
You sit down at the table
Reach for the phone
And laugh to the one person who congratulates

You come home
After any
And every kind of day
Reach for the phone
And talk to the one person who listens

Then one day
As you reach for the phone
You realize
You can’t call them anymore
No matter how much you may want to

Its not like they ever really listened, anyway
Right?

“Loneliness”

Loneliness

Lonely

What do you know

Of loneliness?

 

Do you call it lonely

When it’s raining

Making everyone feel sad

And you’re alone in your room?

 

Do you call it lonely

When you have no one to talk to

Because they’re all busy

So you’ll have to wait until tomorrow?

 

Do you call it lonely

When the person

Who was gonna go the party with you

Must cancel and leave you to go alone?

 

That

Is not

Lonely

 

Lonely is when

The sun is shining

Everyone around you is happy

But you must fake it

 

Lonely is when

You have lots of caring people to talk to

But you don’t talk to them

Because they can’t know you’re not okay

 

Lonely is when

You hang out with your friends

Going to parties, watching movies, having fun

But every moment is torture

 

What the hell

Do you know

Of true loneliness
