How long have I been sitting
In this corner of my life?
It is too easy to stop looking
When I reach the start of my
Previous phase and go back
No further, to a time when
There is no one I can blame
But myself.

When did my world become
So small? Two years ago, it
Looked much larger, and yet
What I imagined was a world apart
From what I actually did.

What happened to my ability
To be a friend? Perhaps it was
Something I only imagined
I was good at while
Draining the energy of those
I claimed to love into
My personal pit of despair.

Where can I go now?
Is there a way back into
The hearts I once called home,
Or will I have to learn
How to do it all over again
Even though there is
Nowhere left to go?
