Alone - By: Richa Tripathi

And I watched

As everyone around me connected with their love

United with their soulmates

Found their center


And all I could do was watch

For when the bell rang

When the time came

I found myself backed in a corner

Home in the shadows

Alone.


Why am I even surprised?

All I've ever been was alone.
