Alone

Alone by Fay Ulrica

You wonder why you’re alone
but you know why,
you’re alone because
you want to be.

Because you're afraid,
because you were born alone
and you’ll die alone
and you never quite understood
the in between.

You never knew what to do with
the in between.
You don’t know what to fill
the empty spaces with
and even if you did,
you don’t know what could
come out of those spaces
and you don’t really
want
to know.

You don’t want to know
the demons
inside you,
or what you’ve let die
to keep them
alive.

You feed those demons
more than you feed
yourself,

and you still wonder why
you’re alone?
