Crowded Loneliness


The hugs from strangers

Love from family

Handshakes and slaps on the back

Tis the season of attention

People smiling everywhere

Once lost friends, now found again

The attention feels like I’m drowning

Not to be rude

Smile and return the well wishes

The loneliness ever present

Within all the noise

I feel voiceless and unheard

A ghost looking in from another dimension

Utterly alone

Wanting to break down

Hold back

Alone, powerless and in a crowd
