Lonely

by Ephraim Steelandt

You're ignoring me, I just know it. There's no way that you just happened to be busy every time I called you and sick every time I visited. How is it that you always have way too much on your plate when I need to talk but others can say Hi to you without getting their heads chewed off? You never answer my e-mails, letters, chats, texts, even birthday cards! You're just pounding the stake deeper and deeper into my aching heart every time you say Goodbye without asking How are you? And it hurts so much more than you'll ever know.
