the paradoxymoron

Social Anxiety

I am alone in a sea of humanity
surrounded by the blistering cacophony of laughter
as my friends dance away their insecurities
which flit away to harass me.
i draw into myself as their surface joy pounds against my brain.
laughter. music. chatter.
happiness that only makes me unhappy.
i am drowning in my own bitterness,
screaming for help
crying for rescue
but only the laughter hears me.
