I love being alone,
but I’m afraid of being lonely.
Loneliness is when you’re
in a group chat full of your best friends,
yet you feel like you’re constantly only talking to yourself.
Loneliness is when you’re in love with your partner,
yet their love for you does not run even closely as deep.
Loneliness is when you’re the scapegoat in family situations,
so you always get defensive when a problem arises.
Loneliness is when you’re surrounded by a myriad
of people who you love,
but you have to think of tricks to test if they love you back.
