Social Anxiety

Unheard,

Unseen

Blind, naked and uncontrollable trembling.

Drowning me,

Suffocating me.

Are you okay?

Whats wrong? Why cant you say?

You're a fake

Just afraid.

You're not pretty, 

You're just looking for pity.

Anti-social and awkward? 

Now THATS a first.

Do you have ANY idea how it feels?

Constantly terrified that you'll judge me?

Disapprove?

Laugh?

Im overwhelmed,

In pain.

Trying to fight back,

But in vain.

All i can do,

Is look away.

What do you want me to say?

Incoherent words,

Are all i can say

But you dont care.

Im a freak. 

You think its ATTENTION i seek?

I fall deeper every second

Into the never-ending abyss of loneliness

But its fine

I'll guess i'll just make up friends of mine.
