Alone and Lonely; yes there is a difference.

Written by Alma Claire / Artist: Anna Rose

I am alone and I am lonely and yes,

There is a difference.

Half of my friends are across an ocean

Half of them are undiscovered
And all of them I do not truly know.

I am part of no

Group chats

Ugly snaps

Insta tags.

Inside jokes are a mystery to me
I’ve never stayed out laughing until three It’s hard to remember how to be
I’m out of practice in being me.

Can I recall the last time I hugged someone?

The last time I danced?
When have I ever had a pizza party?

A year of being alone and lonely.

And yes,
There is a difference.

I am alone on Friday nights

On Monday mornings.

When I have good news
Or tough decisions.

I am alone.

I am lonely while scrolling my social media.

While I watch like an outsider
as you gather in groups.

I long to have friends again. Just one.
I miss

Being a friend.

I am alone and I am lonely and yes,

There is a difference.
