    She said she’s lonely,
    only not alone….
    she interacts with hundreds of people a day,
    sees the caught up, in their quaint little world
    or busily contemplating their own frustrations
    to deal with the qualms of some strange girl…
    in fact, she even talks with a few,
    the polite hellos and nods they give
    are usually meant to assure
    that they’ve done their part
    (even though it’s just the start)
    so they shouldn’t feel insecure
    and sure,
    she has family, friends,
    like most people do
    but she still feels it’s not the same
    it’s perplexing
    and leaves her, up late nights vexing,
    thinking ‘nobody knows my name’

    sure they say it…but was the meaning behind it?
    have they transformed her into a word?
    do they know who she is, the various ways that she feels…
    or do they just think
    that knowing someone is knowing someone?

    it’s not the same, she proclaims
    just to call out a name,
    like a star you point out in the sky
    each moment she’s different but most don’t care
    she could be miles away….even though she’s physically there
    what’s in a name?
    everything….and nothing
    it depends on how it’s used, whether or not it’s abused
    it can define all the elements that make up yours or mine

    she said she’s lonely…
    only not alone,
    sadly, it seems her identity’s gone
    cause they called her and called her,
    but she never came
    saying ‘nobody knows my name’
