Why Am I Alone?Don't look at me.
You won't like what you see.
Hiding within this broken heart,
Are ugly pieces of me.
I feel like I should be the one to cry,
But no one seems to think so.
Perhaps my perception is a big lie,
Maybe that's not the way things go.
Why do I hurt so much?
What's wrong with me?
And why did his words sting me so?
Don't watch my tears.
They don't matter at all.
Just tears of a spoiled child
Tears that will simply fall.
I hate feeling as if no one sees it,
I hurt too but no one cares.
But perhaps I'm only being stupid,
Maybe I'm the one who's unfair.
Why is it that I'm the one who's silly?
What's the point in crying?
And why am I the bad guy if all I did was try?
Don't touch me.
You missed the point entirely.

But they're ones you'll never see.
I'm tired of explaining myself.
Because they all have their own view
I'm a terrible person to cry about,
But there were things they never knew.
Why can others find those who listen?
What do I have to do?

but she wasn't born that way.
A part of her was carved out
when she was ripped between Virginia
and the purple mountains of New Mexico.
Her gold hair, she tore it out when she realized
it didn't make her a princess.
She laid her locks strung along every road
leading somewhere else.
White hairs on her cheeks
are scars from winter.
Her hair darkens with the dampness
of summer rains.
The storms are never silent,
but neither is life when there's a tear
in your childhood where
a parent ought to be.
I've been flooded by Iowa's sorrow.
The only way I can distract her from her own voided landscape
is if I hate myself harder than she cries.
She just wants to fly
and I want to bus or train,
not because I fear death, but because
I want to take living slow.
It's the only way I ever feel.
From the air it's hard to watch Earth's hips move.
But Earth can't compare to the country.
That's my girl.
