Understanding: A Poem

Electronic support rapidly shows on a screen
Thousands of people understand, so they claim
Their words are pure, their intentions keen
Yet for me the feeling remains the same

One on one, in a close friend I should confide
Someone who's words are comforting and genuine
But my true thoughts I hide
Passing up the chance of a therapeutic regimen

On screen or in flesh, neither one matters
What's the use, they'd never understand
In the end it's all just idle chatter
All that I think, no one could withstand

So everyday I fight constant mental adrenaline
Whether one or a thousand, I'm still on my own
In my mind's eye, a constant swinging pendulum
Because in my head is the only place that I'm not alone
