Like a cactus
I wound anyone who gets too close
And yet intimacy
Is what I crave the most
Resigned to a life of loneliness
I have accepted my fate
But yet I wait
For a lone flower to bloom
And bring a bit of joy
To my lonesome world
What can I say about “The Lonesome Cactus?” Well, I guess in a way I am the lonesome cactus but at the same time I am not. As you may or may not have guessed, I wrote this last week when I was still taking my cough syrup. Ah, the good old days.
Anyway, back to the poem and enough with the cough syrup. I do feel like a lonesome cactus sometimes and not just because it is cute and smol.
I am a very introverted person most of the time. Honestly, I don’t particularly like having people around me very much and I don’t like spending time with people I don’t like/know too well. For the most part, I very much enjoy staying in and enjoy my own company. However, sometimes it does get lonely.
I don’t really do relationships because like I said I prefer my own company most of the time. But occasionally it does get lonely. I think I’ve been feeling like that because I’m at that age where everyone around me is getting engaged or married. It’s sort of weird but then I remember I have all my Lifesfinewhiners with me so I’m not really alone. I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.
