in a crowd
A stranger
with friends around
from your feelings
A numbness
inside, congealing
while still near
to those held dear
within your heart
with death will depart

    Oh this one is rough Sanch- I hope things are okay with you girl.

    Being alone is a crowd is something we are perfecting these days as that’s where we all are headed with our fast lives, living with the fear of losing out on something.
