Here But Not Here

I was always alone but never lonely,
Until I started giving pieces of me
To everyone around me,
Until there was nothing left of me
Because no one gave pieces of them;
No one wanted to trade.
I started crying tears,
But I never knew why it came,
But there they were,
Falling one after another,
And things were never the same.
I hide my pain,
That I never even knew was there;
I thought if I smiled and pretended,
Everything would be okay.
I tried to fight it, I really did
But fighting with myself,
Was a war I was to lose,
Right before it was even declared.
And so now I sit here,
Alone and lonely,
With no one beside me;
They can’t even remember,
That I was once there.
