Every now and then I feel so alone I can honestly feel my heart breaking.
My throat starts to ache and tears well in my eyes and I feel empty inside.
I know that I am not alone. I have family and friends, and I am thankful for that. I don’t always feel it.
There are moments, like this one, where I don’t feel like I have family or friends. They might be there but they aren’t really there. Not really. They have their own lives and their own issues that they have to deal with. That’s just the way it goes. I get that. Life can be crazy and people can’t always be there when you need them.
I hope that I matter but I’m not sure that I do. In a more lucid moment I would say that’s the trauma from my childhood but this isn’t a lucid moment. This is a moment of darkness where I feel alone.
I feel totally alone. There is no one I can turn to and have them there. Right there. In that moment. When I need them.
I don’t know why someone can’t be there. I don’t know if they want to or not. I don’t know if they even try. I’m not them, so I don’t know.
I just know that I am not okay and it sucks to be alone.
