Youre [Not] Alone


Ive seen it said


(I tend to visit a lot

I mean, a LOT

of these websites)

by well-meaning strangers

“If youre going through a dark time,


youre not alone.”

which, nice as it is,

may or may not be true

(I have my own opinions

on their truth or lack)

every time I see it

I wonder

“How do they know

Im not alone?”




even if Im not alone

when I go through dark times

if I call out for help

and theyre dismissive

I might as well be


You're [Not] Alone
