Lost Connection


There's a lost connection somewhere in my brain.

The things that used to bring me joy, only bring me pain.

This device has lost connection, please contact the support line,

but the line was disconnected, and I don't have that kind of time.

Life moves on and I try my best to

It's hard to make friends the way that you do.

I want to ask to tag along with all my friends when they go out,

but I always lose my voice which is strange because it's loud.

There's a failure in my systems, maybe something got unplugged.

I just sit at home alone again watching CSI reruns. 

And when my plans got canceled last minute once again,

I say it's fine but deep inside, I really wanted to see my friends.

I want to be a part of the fun that you are having,

But the disconnect inside my head tells me that I'm lacking.

It says that I'm not good enough, that I'll never be the one

that you plan to spend your time with when you plan on having fun.

Something's very wrong I need a mental health inspection,

I need a good solution for my continued lost connection.
