Stop yelling at me for the things that I can’t control
Stop leaving me because I make you uncomfortable
Stop blaming me for being scared of being left behind
when the consistent thing in my life has been
Stop pushing my hand away when I latch onto your sleeve
and follow you like a devoted puppy
because I’m not a puppy
and I’m deeply afraid
I hate being alone
– – – – – – –
To those of us who feel alone; to those of us who are outcasts and loners; to those of us who were abandoned and left – know this.
You are not alone.
We are here.
