TheSilent Loudness


Alone


Alone in a shirt of a band my friends hate
With light so close it burns my face
Scratching a blemish that won't disappear
Making me feel even uglier than usual
Even the fingers that type are short and ugly
With bitten nails and weakness
Not strong enough for sports to make daddy happy
But quick enough for a few chords on the guitar leaning on my bed
Every time the light darkens and I see a reflection
It's amazing how much worse I look, every time
And even worse is what's happening to my mind
As if it's being eaten away
Or at least cluttered
I'm alone with no reason to be
I'm in love with a girl that's fallen asleep
And all my friends are out without me
I'm not mad
Not mad in the least
Just wish I was better at living
Better at existing
Better at being alone

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
