i don’t care
call me intelligent

that i made you smile
tell me i have something to offer

The human population grows and grows yet
internet connections and airports connect us in ways
both simple and wonderful. However, on nights
like this, when the space beside me is empty and cold,
I wonder how it could still be so damn difficult to
find another soul to call home.
