" I replay a conversation in my head to make sure I didn't say anything thick.
I don't know how to make nice with strangers.
I'm not sure how people feel about me, and it makes me nervous.
I get frightened at the thought of talking to someone new, and not knowing what to say.
I can't keep a conversation going.
I'm constantly scolding myself for not saying what I want to.
It's not because I am shy.
It's not just my generation.
It's not because I'm addicted to the internet.
It's not because I haven't experienced the world.
I'm just awkward "
"I'm on the other side
Of where our lives used to be
I'm on the other side . . .
Every push of my feet
In the sand
Together is not where we stand
And every kiss to meet my hand
And opens a new door
And all the little lies
Well they call and they wait
And they comfort
And save me from nothing "
