Do not torment me
any longer with the simple
false hopes that you bestow.
For I am alone here
and this I know better
than you would think.
Betrayed by my
so called friends just
when I needed them the most.
Lost alone amongst
the vast crowds that
gather here and there.
I need something but
what I do not
know, yet I need it.
I am hidden
in the back and
in the deep shadows.
If I let no one
see me then no one
can hurt me.
No one can leave me
crying again as it
seems to always be.
