You want to be alone
You put up all the signs
You’re serious,
Hardly smile
And when you do, it doesn’t reach your eyes
You walk with headphones on and don’t look around you But you still attract attention
They come and try to draw you out of the sleepy hallow that is you But they don’t understand the danger
To you
To themselves
What would happen if you strike out with all the emotions
raging inside you
Some you don’t even understand
You try to control it,contain it
And be patient
They don’t know how you feel
Just cause you don’t walk round with tears in your eyes
They only see their need Who takes care of your need
