Don’t Tell Me I’m Not Alone

Don't Tell Me I'm Not Alone

Don’t tell me I’m not alone
because at 3:27 am on a Friday morning
when I’m smothered in my darkness
with heavy thoughts and what-ifs
clutching my tear-stained pillow
I sit up and look around the room
to see that the only person here is
the only person who understands is
the only one who hears the cries is
don’t tell me I’m not alone
because that is false
you’re not the one engulfed in sadness
it’s me
and I am so alone.
