Leave me alone.
I don't know why.
Why you so quiet?
I'm not. Inside my head.
Can't see the forest through the trees.
Lots of blessings in my life, but
I'm using the self-checkout lane.
No people there.
Void of human interaction.
I'm starved.
I just ate a dozen cookies in the dark though.
Community's great; yet,
lonely when you're around people is
much worse than lonely by yourself.
What's it going to take?
I don't care.
Just leave me be.
I'm in a "bad" mood.
Actually, my mood's not bad, it just got mixed-up
with the wrong crowd.
Pretty flowers.
Who cares.
Leave me alone.
