So Close But Yet So Far

At first thought living on campus,

Seemed like a great idea. 

You meet new faces,

And become even closer,

With your old buds.

 

The best part,

Always being on this,

Beautiful, little, blossoming,

Campus called,

Augustana. 

 

But for some bizarre reason,

I feel more lonely here, 

Then I did at home.

 

No new notifications.

Ting

‘Snapchat has sent you a snap’

Eating alone in the dining hall.

Empty dorm room.

Sleeping early-

leaving late night giggles behind.

 

It's funny you know,

How I thought living here, 

Would cure my loneliness,

And feed my hunger,

For human connection.
