Loner sitting in a sad room

Thinking of suicide and gloom


Loner gazing in the mirror

And turning away with a shiver


Loner craving company

But cursed with invisible infamy


Loner walking in the rain

Shedding salty tears of pain


Loner talking to no one

And avoiding the stinging sun.


Loner, please tarry a while:

You have walked for many a mile


Those who made you cry

Now wring their hands and sigh


You made it to many things

And they – to nothing!
