You Might Call It Antisocial...

Some people just don't want to talk to faces very often,
because after tens of years of recognizing disinterest in eyes,
the not-so-subtle look at a watch, the quick glances away,
the heart detaches, only knows despise.

Some find comfort staring at a screen,
writing words that two or three might acknowledge...
even some words never seen.

Because at least then rejection isn't as obvious...
Being ignored isn't so direct...
Every part of being, becomes easier to protect.

You might call it unhealthy, anti-social, 
but you refuse to see, 
the alternative is simply loathful,
painful, for someone like me.
