Free Verse: Introverted Grief

I’m surrounded by people

But I want to be alone. 

I am happy to be around them,

Yet exhausted to make an effort. 

I yearn to leave,

But I know that if I do, I will cry,

Even though I am not sad. 

I don’t understand myself;

I suppose I never will.

Nor will I ever understand

The pain of goodbyes.

I'm just a kid in the big, wide world, trying to find my way through life by clinging to the hope of something better.
