Cry For Attention

Cry For Attention


The girl who says she’s lonely
stares out of cyberspace at me.

Those who stand furthest from the wall,
won’’t understand how good its feels
to have a wall behind your back.

I empathize with her. Dark hair
cascading around her face
reminds me of someone long ago –
someone who I could not love.

But she professes she’s lonely …
so I look into those big beautiful eyes
and I see the big question mark.

Those who stand furthest from the wall
won’t have the will to question
what is solid and what is false.

But I do.

  1. Who’s heart doesn’t melt for a girl feeling lonely? Everybody’s right, anyone would help a girl in this situation and be the wall on which she could stand with support on her back. You have really said what every guy thinks.
