Poetry Monday: Who has the Answers?

How do you tell
Someone you’re lonely
Without it sounding
Like you just
Want attention –
How do you make
Them understand
The depth of
The darkness
You feel inside –
How do you ask
Them how they
Feel about you
Without sounding
Needy and annoying –
How do you know
If your mind plays
Tricks on you or
If everyone around
You lies –
What if, despite
What they say
You’re not important
To anyone –
How do you survive –

From the poetry collection Cats, Coffee, Catharsis.
