I just want to connect.
I want to feel like a normal college girl.
I’m stuck in a world of silence and loneliness.
Maybe this grain of sand will turn into a pearl.
I’m trying my best to navigate the waters of friendship.
This ship is going down without a sound.
No one sees me. No one hears my cry.
I can’t connect.
I haven’t found a drop of life.
I’m afraid I never will so I will be still and wait.
I’ll wait for my end and try not to pretend that I wasn’t a mistake.
I’m a child who can’t connect.
