Nobody Needs Me

At times I’ve often thought that people needed me.
In there lives but I’ve quickly realized I’m just trash.
Nobody needs trash, I slow people down.
I just cause others problems.
So I’ve done my best to step back away from everyone.
Stay hidden in the shadows.
Like batman.
I audit life.
I don’t participate

Participation leads to friends.
Friends lead to trouble.
It’s much easier to be alone.
To stay alone.
To have distance between people.

That’s how I live my life.
Like a recluse.
I don’t need to bother others.
I’m a nothing for everyone.

That’s how I’ve lived my life
It’s how I’ll continue as well.


Sitting In The Dark

Nobody shines light on me.
I sit alone, I sit in the dark.
The phone sits and collects dust.
Friends have no place for me
I have no place for friends.

Everyone would rather leave me alone.
Alone is where everyone leaves me.
It’s what’s best for me.
It’s what’s best for everyone.
Nobody needs to talk to me.
Feel sorry for me, never.

I will remain quiet
I will remain hidden.
Less friends
Less worries

Don’t have to worry how people are doing.
If nobody is in my life.
They can all just walk around me.
Ignore me since I’m nothing that great.


Can’t Say I Blame Them

I can’t say I’m surprised
Nobody would want me.
Why would they.
I look at myself in the mirror
I see all my flaws.
I see all my problems.
I see the ugliness starring back at me.

Nobody would want to wake up next to it.
Nobody would want to spend the day with it.
If they do, they’d be happy to get away from it.
I can’t say I blame them.
Sadly I can’t.
It’s everywhere I go.
It follows me like a shadow.


The Shadows

The shadows is where I sit
Watching the world as it moves on.
I continue to sit still, moving with them.
Not watching any one.
Just watching life continue.
Watching the world move.
As I stand still.
It moves at almost warp speed.

I move at a snails pace.
I’m so far behind the times
I should be a thousand steps back.
Can’t afford to keep up.
Have trouble with my own up keep.

My up keep is almost close to a homeless man.
Which I imagine I’ll be in the future.
Since people tend to avoid me.
Not call me
Want nothing to do with me
