So Damned Alone
Isolation mixed with anxiety
All alone in these four walls,
Which I learned to call my home;
Silence so thick that my breath
Echoes and rebounds.
Once I had imagined how good it feels
To be left so alone;
But now the stillness in the air
Is like a pall, and death.
There is nobody else around.
No calls on my telephone;
No mails for me to read.
No friends, old or new, come by;
Perhaps they think that I am dead?
