    Being Wanted

    I feel pushed out and unwanted. My family doesn't much care, my friends just leave me as soon as something or someone more important comes along and I don't have a girlfriend. The furthest I've ever gotten with a girl is a kiss, but that was when I was 14. I feel like it's...

    I'm so sick of being ignored

    and abandoned. I know that I push people away, but all I want is for someone to want me. People always cut me out, and it makes me feel so worthless. I just can't handle being alone anymore.

    sitting in a parking lot outside of a store,

    ready to go in, but I'm on the phone with my dad. she's sitting shotgun, patiently waiting. I grab her hand and pull it towards my crotch. as soon as she figures out what I want, she pulls her hand away from me and gives me a look of disgust.

    Not Even In A Romantic Way

    Just in a friendship over the years I've had a lot of friends but I just never like they really wanted me around. Almost like they just felt bad for me so they hung out with me in pity. I don't know if that was the reality of just my own self hatred but it sucks.
