look in, look out

i look in they all love me i’m surrounded by hopes and dreams all gathered there on the screen they all look so happy i look out the sky is blue it’s a sunny day, a lovely view i wonder if they were here would they be happy? looking back down the window into a world that doesn’t exist and they walk out of frame, into the swirling mist if they could be here with me would we be happy? I am told i am adored empty words upon deaf ears. because sometimes it feels like those who know me truly are stuck behind a screen pixels of people who don’t exist. i can never be with them. so without them with only what i have outside can i be happy?
