Don’t They Know

They say I’m lonely because I am alone

They say I haven’t tried falling in love just because I have no significant other

They say I haven’t truly had my heart broken because I’m single.

.

But don’t they know I’m at my happiest when I am alone?

Don’t they know that I’ve fallen one too many times for the wrong person?

And don’t they know that single people has had their hearts broken more often?

Significant Other

I often hear their stories

Of how falling in love lifted their worries.

They told me I have been missing out

But I hear nothing of this. I don’t hear them shout!

To have someone to call your own, they say

As if you can own a person, I dare say.

Why can’t they see that I am fine on my own?

I am fine being just by myself until my hair is grey and I am nothing but bones.

I Wish I Wasn’t

Wish I could be

someone else other than me

One who does not cry easily,

one who’s strong, steady and sure most preferably

 

I wish I was more confident

strong and prominent

I wish I wasn’t such a weakling

inconspicuous like rain slowly trickling

 

Sometimes I wish I wasn’t me

but is there someone else that I could be?
