routines

work, eat, sleep
rinse and repeat
loneliness taking its toll
but who has time to notice
to do anything about it?
no time to broaden horizons
ask a machine to find people exactly like me
it saves time rather than to get to know them
through good ol' fashioned conversation

in a car ride I see this
a sad sight, too young to be this old,
explaining to me her vast emptiness unintentionally
through broken english and body language
sorrow swept over my heart
as I looked into her eyes
they were crying for help,
unknowingly asking me to
save her
