What’s it like being lonely?
I wish I could say I didn’t know
But I can honestly say that I do
It feels like cold bed sheets
And sore eyes from staring at the word “seen” beneath a message
It sounds like the ticking of a clock that you can hear from the kitchen wall
As you lay alone in bed
It smells like air only carbonated by one
It tastes like imaginary kisses
It looks like eating at a table for one,
Going to bed and sleeping,
Making one coffee in the morning,
Checking your phone constantly to see if they care
So what’s it like being lonely?
My answer; I know it all too well
