My Human



It’s lonely in here

I’ve never had a problem with

being my own company 

I’ve kept it for my entire life

without any complaint 

But now

I finally realize what

being alone means 

The new of

being without someone has

sunk in

and I understand what it is to

miss another human 

My human 

I won’t beg 

I won’t act desperate to others 

And I sure as fuck won’t settle for

something less than I deserve

But tonight

my standards are low

and I’m drinking
