I’m lonely but I won’t ask for you to speak I won’t beg for your company I won’t be a bother I feel the empty hole in my heart growing expanding into a black abyss where once laughter and happiness resided And what are these words you do say trivial ordinary words with no depth or feeling attached I hang on for more wishing and hoping but that’s all you give me sad little fragments tiny snippets of you and I swear the next time I won’t try I won’t try so hard to encourage you to open up I’ll leave you be and I’ll continue to be lonely. Tamara Daniel
