the anti-hero

three’s a crowd
as I have learnt
the hard way

I don’t much
like crowds
anyway

a roomful of people
like hogs in a sty
mucking about
make me feel
claustrophobic
I need to go outside
get some air
and, want to let out
a shout

I guess this
is my problem
and I have to deal
but, why do others
make me feel
less than zero
I just want to be alone

    I was once told that nobody can make you feel anything…..

    I’m not sure that is true.

    I wish I knew the solution to what you’ve spoken about in this piece. I’m not going to suggest you become a hermit…there has to be a balance.

  • as much as ilike my friend, whom I moved next door to, she talks and talks non-stop, then, with one of her other friends is around, I’m sitting in the ejection seat with their conversation on the button release….what made it worse I was entertaining at my place and made them dinner….still, they went on conversing without me, I get half a sentence out and they ignore me….
    I waas mostly alone for over thepast year, grateful to have friends around now, but, still what I have to offer seems, to them, less important…
    I have encountered this alot even when I went away to my retreat, knowing many folks there, but, because I didn’t enter into their cliques, I didn’t matter except one on one…
    I just gotten used to being alone, I guess and my social skills aren’t as they once were, however, I am made to feel like an alien still….

    after a while
    i tire of
    the same old shit
    i have to leave
    and venture ouside
    and do something
    anything
    and then when
    i see some people
    who seem
    more dead
    than alive
    i remember
    why i stay
    inside

  • very good…I think many homebodies have this very sense….
