I wonder if other people see how I feel.

With every glare to meet my eyes,

its another preying glare to slap my face

and another glare that heats my cheeks with nervous fire

 

I wonder if, day after day,

if people see my fear, if they see how I shake.

When they walk by, I stumble away

because I know they don't want me near them.

 

I wonder if they pity me

If they see the lonely child inside my glass skin.

Sometimes they give me gentle eyes

because they feel sorry for how lonley I really am inside.

 

I wonder if they know I don't fit in,

if they try to welcome me but I'm too naive to see.

But everytime I just walk away because-

because everytime I try is another crash and burn.  

well i was feeling good for a while but then school came... and then i felt sad again. so this is mostly about me being kinda lonely and antisocial

the fire imagery in the first stanza makes it really clear how you feel. it's not just being anti-social, it sounds like social anxiety. as someone who copes with social anxiety myself i can say that i sometimes think if people pity me, or feel sorry for me - or even the opposite. whether they know me as 'that guy' etc. the thing is, people do want you around, you just don't know it. i mean, this is a pretty complicated issue that i can't really explain in a bloody comment but you're not alone in feeling alone, is what i'm trying to say. you have your words, for one thing c:

I think you did a lovely job at writing this. I understand about being anti-social. I deliberately live in the woods, in the mountains on 5 and a half acres to avoid other people. Now, I'm seriously anti-social. :D Great work, and I so enjoyed reading your writing. Thank you!
