Do you know what it feels like?
To feel so socially awkward
around people that you feel
uncomfortable in your own skin,
knowing that you don't fit in.
And, you walk away...
thinking that being alone
will be better for you -
but you're wrong.
You just feel even more  alone;
even more rejected from society;
perhaps even sad, in some way.

What do you do while waiting for someone?
As you wait, and wait, and wait for them -
hoping they'll come soon
lest you seem like a loner
walking aimlessly around,
causing people to pity you.
And your face gets hot,
you start to sweat because
they know -
they know of how alone you are
and they feel sorry for you.
I find it difficult to talk to people.
The sheer amount of comments that I've received and read have been overwhelming. So many of you feel the same way I do and truthfully, I don't know whether I should feel happy or sad that you can relate to this poem.

As always, I read all the comments but this time I will not be responding to all of them as I usually would.
If you really do want me to reply to you, please send me a note instead.

Thank you. :hug:
Fun fact! Turns out the day that I wrote this poem - April 2nd - was World Autism Day.

Yup, I have no friends because I'm afraid of talking to people...

I can relate to this. Definitely. Although, on the Internet it seems so much easier to interact with others because you have a common area of interest to talk about, and I can't really say the same thing about real life. This is so well written!
