Alone in a Crowd

Alone in a Crowd

by Me

Surrounded by the people you know

Hidden, though, you’re not ready to show

who you are 

cause you’re far

Seems you need to send an “SOS” SMS

write to their email address

Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and more

cause they’re all attention whores

paying the whores with their attention

which causes tension

with those seeking to be social on the networks

who don’t understand how the net works

in a world more connected

we’re more disconnected

so what do you do

with your dysfunctional crew

can’t express your emotions 

as if in the middle of the ocean

yelling, screaming

as you awake from dreaming

you open your eyes

and to your surprise

there they are, your new group

supportive as you recoup.
