Here i am standing still
Waiting for the room to quiet
Anytime i try to talk, I’m unheard.
As if the whole world is ignoring me.
Surrounded by lovers, I’m the only one here, single.
I might as well be invisible.
I’ll close the door softly
And disappear like a ghost.
I sit here broken
In this cold darkness
That I call loneliness.
