Alone

Love,

Entered my life with abandon,

recklessly causing unwanted emotions,

reviving the lost hope of happiness.

 

Reason,

Escaped the test of thought,

and was buried by loves intensity,

but continued to struggle to say alive.

 

Reality,

Randomly dismissed and forgotten,

having no part of love,

joined reason in its isolation.

 

Loneliness,

My life-long trusted companion,

please don’t linger far away,

I fear you must rejoin me soon.

For I do not believe in love,

and this feeling masked in beauty will soon depart,

leaving me where I will forever dwell…Alone.
