I’ve been adrift for a long time,
Without any reason or rhyme,
Deserted amongst the normal,
Wearing jeans to a black-tie formal.
Awing at how natural there life comes,
Social butterflies thrive as I live off crumbs,
Not scared of every bump in the night,
Around every corner is no potential fright.
They can move on from every bad conversation,
No misplaced word gives them agitation,
Tomorrow will be a brand new day,
While to me it’s an entire lifetime away.
Sleepless nights of moments that went wrong,
Nightmares of memories play along,
If only I could become a regular soul,
But alas I must carry this heavy toll.
