Can you imagine it? Alone.
So glad when the carer comes. Someone to talk to.
Get dressed, fed, she leaves. Alone.
Judge Judy, make a snack, go online. Alone.
The phone pings. Conversation? Just a spam email. Alone.
Lunch, a sandwich, Judge Judy. Alone.
Nearly 5, the carer comes. Fed, she leaves. Alone.
Can’t go to bed it’s too early. When was the last time I spoke aloud?
Criminal Minds, hot chocolate. Alone.
Everyone is busy living. I’m just existing.
Finally nightfall. Go to bed. Sleep.
Tomorrow I’ll start another day. Alone.
Can you imagine it?
