Today - Poem by ary bolanos

Today I really needed someone, and...
There was really no one there

You see...
This world is weighing down on me
It's even hard to speak

You see...
This world keeps on eating at me
No, no I will not leave

You see...
This world is running over me
I want to yell please stop!

You see...
This world won't stop hitting me
I think we'll need a mop

You see...
I can take being alone
But, can't take being around

You see...
I can look for someone whose not there
And, catch a glimpse of the ground

You see...
The world is saying 'here take that'
I say 'O.K., O.k. that's fair'

You see...
Today I really needed someone, and...
No one but no one was there
