When darkness befalls,
I am a vulnerable little sheep,
Who is unable to do anything.
Especially if a wolf comes by
and bites me....
I fall to the ground
and just lay there.
Unable to move
And unable to do anything...

When dawn breaks,
I am a cheerful little bird.
Who is chirping
And flapping its wings.
Being all friendly,
and making small talk....
I'm just smiling as if
Nothing's wrong,
And thinking everything
is just a
facade..

When darkness befalls again,
I am curled up inside my covers
As if I'm afraid of something...
Something that I will probably  start
Considering my friend...
But I don't want to be its friend.
I just don't.... because I'm afraid
that it will become my friend
forever.....

Your poetry rings true for one who wishes for friendships yet fears them at the same time. Having a friend makes us vulnerable and that can be frightening, like learning to swim by being thrown out of the boat.

Some of us are simply jealous of our time and don't want the imposition of others.

The latter is the easiest to modify. You don't have to deal with a 'wolf'.

...just bein' Bluesy
