Casey Corcoran, Sitting In My Room Alone After Telling My Roommates That I Am Going To Work

The vibration of my phone

is muffled by bed sheets

but I know you’re not calling,

you can’t use a phone.


The loneliest feeling

isn’t when I’m alone around other people


it’s sitting on a bed alone

knowing that I’m surrounded by people

but feeling alone anyways.


I consider setting your photograph

(the one of you in the green sweater)

as the contact picture for everyone in my phone.


This queen size bed makes my body feel small,

don’t tell anyone I’m here.
