    October Sky

    most days
    i try to hide my eyes
    inside me the darkness is free
    the air of loneliness abounds
    and you see nothing but despair
    so i refrain from human ties
    i keep emotions discreet
    even when i speak it’s indirect
    i always try to look down
    so no one notices the sounds
    the muffled cries of self hate
    the oceans running down my face
    the ground soaked beneath my feet
    the world just passes me by
    amidst the normal and residual
    living aimless and miserable
    in a blue October sky.
