Alone

what if all the people who ate dinner alone ate together?

this is for everyone that doesn’t have a person.

for those who are eating alone again tonight,

you’re trying to look happy and busy there,

with only your thoughts for company.

you want real conversation,

but no one reaches out to you,

and fear keeps you from reaching out to others.

so you feel as if you’re stuck in this constant cycle of loneliness,

but i understand how you feel, i truly do.

because you are me.

and what if i sat next to you?

would we talk of music and politics and philosophy,

our hopes and our fears?

because we all have opinions and stories,

and we all have that need for human connection.

what if all the people who ate dinner alone ate together?
