Being Alone 

By Bailey Gold 


I’ve run through every stop light 

Pretending that they’re green 

I know it is not right 

But I say what I mean 


I ignore all the signs 

Because both make me melt 

They are and are not mine 

But all of my feelings are felt 


Maybe shut up? 

All of you around 

Love isn’t just from you 

Cause inside me it’s found 


I will halt at the red 

And enjoy the waiting time 

I must calm my wild head

And know alone…


I am infinitely fine
