alone

Written by: rebecca howard

alone in the darkness 
alone in my hell 
no one to hold me 
no one to see 
no one to care 
what will happen to me 
people they see me 
sitting on the street 
but to them I'm invisible 
even if I scream 
when I beg for money 
they all look away 
then one day I'll leave 
and no one will notice 
and no one will care 
and no one will see 
the small crumpled body 
that once was me
