Street Light Shadows


I think

I just saw


I haven’t seen Lonely

In a while.

She’s scary.

She haunts me.

She chases me.

I thought I lost her?

How’d she find me here?

I crossed an ocean.

How’d you find me, Lonely?


Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you were someone else.

No, I know, my bad.

I panicked. I caught a glimpse and thought—

No, I know, she’s not here.

Lonely will never find me again.

I killed her.

But when that song plays

Or I’m in the dark

I’m smart

I cover my throat

Because that’s her favorite time

To choke me.

She’s come for me.

But I forget—

I buried her.

A while ago.
