is anyone out there? will you hear me if i call?

i need someone like me; i have no one at all.

she needs me to listen because she has no one else.

i love her, but she's so lost in her own world that she barely responds when i talk to her.

"i'm really afraid i'll be unhappy for the rest of my life."

"mmmm."

"I don't know what to do."

"yeah."

silence, and then she talks about herself. selfish because she's lonely, i was that way too. i don't want to burden her with the things i'm fighting - i do not believe she can help me right now.

she needs me to listen because she has no one else. i need someone like me; i have no one at all.

i feel so lost. i feel so alone.
