    You don't realize how lonely you are

    until it's the end of the day and you have a bunch of things to talk about, but no one to tell them to.

    The one person that could make me feel at least

    a little better isn't talking to me. It hurts so much waiting and waiting, hoping that I'll hear something soon. I just need someone to talk to. Someone I can hold for a few hours.

    When I think about it too much,

    I cry or panic. I mostly panic in public and cry at home. Once I cried at school but I'm always alone so nobody really noticed except for the janitor who just awkwardly walked away.
