Adulthood

Isn't it funny
how yesterday
you used to be
life of the party
a dazzling centerpiece

and now you
scroll the names
endlessly
on your phone
wondering
who could fill
the void of the evening,
there are at least 
a hundred of them
but you don't know
where to begin
when you ended it all
long ago...
it is what you chose

and honestly
you are too tired
to answer
"how are you?"
you realize you need
something beyond
small talk and politics

when all the others
seem to have
figured it all out
you wonder if
you are back to zero
or just don't belong
in 'the game'.
